The shortest and arguably the lightest of the Sherlock Holmes novels, this one lacks the scope of "A Study in Scarlet" or the spooky atmosphere of "The Hound of the Baskervilles" but in other respects it includes all the usual characteristics of a Holmes story -- arcane clues, exotic criminal characters, bumbling policemen etc. It also first introduces the woman who would become Watson'S wife. An easy entertaining read.
