    " Lombroso would have been proud, which isn't very good. Despite this, I recommend the story and foremost the televised Granada version of it, starring the singular Jeremy Brett as Holmes. "

    " I really enjoyed this story. It was very well written and an entertaining read. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is simply because the ending was rather rushed and slightly unclear. However, I would recommend it to anyone. "

About the Author

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859–1930) was born of Irish parentage in Scotland. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, but he also had a passion for storytelling. His first book introduced that prototype of the modern detective in fiction, Sherlock Holmes. Despite the immense popularity Holmes gained throughout the world, Doyle was not overly fond of the character and preferred to write other stories. Eventually popular demand won out and he continued to satisfy readers with the adventures of the legendary sleuth. He also wrote historical romances and made two essays into pseudoscientific fantasy: The Lost World and The Poison Belt.
