Sherlock Holmes, the world’s first consulting detective, is bored. And when he’s bored he injects himself with one of two types of drugs–cocaine or morphine. His housemate and biographer, Dr Watson, hates to see the genius in such a state so when Mary Morstan turns up at 221B Baker Street with a puzzling case he is relieved. Relieved, and other things. Miss Morstan is rather fetching.

Oh my gosh....AMAZING

What starts out as a small meeting with an unknown man turns into a murder mystery for Sherlock Holmes. I don't like to spoil endings, but let me say this: if you think the book is boring at first, don't stop reading: there is a TON of action towards the end.

The best post-ACD collection of Holmes short stories.

Patrick Callahan's excellent review is right on the money, but I'm giving this little book four stars anyway just because, when it's good, it's _very_ good. Some of the stories contained herein -- based on Watson's occasional references to unrecorded (not "unsolved", as the current edition's subtitle incorrectly has it) cases -- surpass some of the elder Doyle's later works. Highly recommended, especially as an antidote to the surfeit of "pastiches" that can't seem to get any of the details right.

Classic Holmes

Sherlock Holmes was one of my favorite literary characters when I was young. He is still relevant in the 21st century. My adult children find Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as entertaining an author as I did in the '60's.

Gripping suspense.

This novel is still a page turner after a century in print. The narration is crisp and engaging. This book can be don't in one sitting.

Much better than "A Study in Scarlet" though I enjoyed both, this one is more thrilling and fun to read.

Well written and thought out

This was my intro to Sherlock Holmes. I downloaded it for free on Kindle. I immediately bought the full collection for 0.99 and in this manner inagurated the Kindle. Good product and good marketing for Amazon.

Good old-fashioned mystery

Sir Doyle paints such clear portraits, his paints are his words and one can almost feel the spray of the Thames when the "game was afoot" as the chase of the Aurora raced down the ancient waterway.
