A rich American is murdered in mysterious circumstances in a manor house in Sussex, England. Sherlock Holmes, accompanied by Dr. Watson, is invited to help the investigation. Though Holmes solves the mystery at hand, his attention and indeed the mystery itself shifts to the coalfields of North America. The heart of the matter is corruption - the date is 1875. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle outs his finger with uncanny accuracy on civil corruption which so blighted North America in that century.

    " Possibly the best story of Sherlock Holmes, although many cite Baskerville's, i was just amazed by its pacing and telling. The flashback sequence is one of the best of its kind. "

    " Another solid story, although it probably says something that it took me a while to get through it--not for bad writing or boring plot, but because I just didn't feel super compelled to keep going. This one is a lot like A Study in Scarlet, with the initial murder-mystery, the solved problem, and then a flashback to reveal the history of the people involved. It was a pretty lively backstory, full of Pinkertons, a league of villains and an interesting main character, but this still won't rank very high on my Sherlock canon. Now that I'm done with the novels, I've started the short story collection. So far the reviews are right: Sherlock goes down so much better in small doses, when you don't get lectures about dumb history, and when his quirks and genius are allowed to shine. Onward! "

    " This was good. The first half was a great mystery but the second half was a long adventure story explaining one part of the mystery. That part got boring at times. But the book has added a new word to my every day vocabulary (bodymaster) which is always a good thing. "

    " The whole case is solved in the first half of the book and the second half is more of an explanation/back story for why the murder happened. I didn't like that so much, it took me a while to get through and finish it. I enjoy the way "Watson" writes better. "
