As a dense yellow fog swirls through the streets of London, a deep melancholy has descended on Sherlock Holmes, who sits in a cocaine-induced haze at 221B Baker Street. His mood is only lifted by a visit from a beautiful but distressed young woman---Mary Morstan, whose father vanished ten years before. Four years later she began to receive an exquisite gift every year: a large, lustrous pearl. Now she has had an intriguing invitation to meet her unknown benefactor and urges Holmes and Watson to accompany her. In the ensuing investigation---which involves a wronged woman, a stolen hoard of Indian treasure, a wooden-legged ruffian, a helpful dog, and a love affair---even the jaded Holmes is moved to exclaim, Isn't it gorgeous!

    " Rather boring to be quite frank. Like the first Holmes I read, starts off great, then kind of fizzles out. I am hopeful that his future adventures will be more captivating. "

    " I don't know why but I liked more the first book (Study in Scarlata). Maybe I feel this book a little more predectable. I also have to say that now Sir Arthur connected much better the case with the criminal exposition (cause in the first book it was told in a different chapter, like it was another story). I enjoy everyone of the multiples Holmes deductions , and is nice when I make my conjetures and these are corrects. "

    " Not quite as much fun as the first book although the first scene does revolve around Sherlock being bored because there isn't enough work. When this happens he goes on cocaine binges which is fairly shocking to this modern reader but entertaining in its own right. In this instance, the change in times is charming although later parts of the book also show this change in times in a less humorous light. This is particularly true with regard to race relations, as portions of the story deal with other countries and nationalities and the characterizations of other ethnicities is quite offensive although certainly normal for the time in which the novel was written. At any rate, the plot is not so clever as to make up for the dated language. "

    " Buku yang endingnya tidak disangka-sangka (bagi saya). Dan disinilah Dr.Watson bertemu dengan Mary Morstan. "
