Sherlock Holmes – scourge of criminals everywhere, whether they be lurking in London’s foggy backstreets or plotting behind the walls of an idyllic country mansion – and his faithful colleague Dr Watson, solve twelve breathtaking and perplexing mysteries.
The most famous detective in literary history.. Holmes (and Watson) at Baker Street needs no introduction.
The collection of 12 short stories are just fantastic and remains a highly recommended classic. It’s hard not to enjoy the problem solving prowess of Mr Holmes and the descriptions of Victorian London, served up in nice succinct bites.
Fun fact: Conan Doyle wrote 62 Holmes cases between 1887 and 1927.
The formula is similar in each so I recommend picking it up for one or two at a time rather than reading through the entire collection as you would a novel.
Also, if you have a Kindle you can find a decent version of these stories for almost nothing.
Never trust to general impressions, my boy, but concentrate yourself upon details.
MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
