I enjoyed reading this book very much because I liked mystery stories. In this story, one person was killed by a murderer. Sherlock Holmes and his friend, Dr Watson tried to find the murderer. Most people including the police thought one boy was the murdere. But Sherlock Holmed found another murderer. I was happy at last because it was happy ending. I want to read ather stories of Sherlock Holmes. ( )

In Boscombe Pool , a man was murdered.
The criminal was guessed his son who were witnessed him quarreling with a man just before a man was murdered , but Holmes's guess was diffrent from it...... ( )
