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.
This particular collection of 12 short stories are however fantastically written 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, laid out in nice succinct stories.
Fun fact: Conan Doyle wrote 62 Holmes cases / stories between 1887 and 1927.
Note, 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 one would read a novel.
Also, if you have a Kindle you can find a decent version of this book for almost free.
“Never trust to general impressions, my boy, but concentrate yourself upon details.”
MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
