There's really nothing I can add here that I haven't said about the previous volumes, aside from the fact that, despite Holmes having by now become a bit of a millstone around Doyle's neck, he still managed to pump out some great stories.

A collection of good short stories on Sherlock's adventures. ( )

The stories of Holmes and Watson are nothing if not consistently compelling reads.

This was yet another example of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's excellent writing and his ability to weave story and reality together, although the sudden resurrection of Holmes was a little puzzling in its execution. I'm glad for it though as I love the series, and I'm glad it got to continue. ( )
