Uniquely good bunch of short stories. Not the best of all his stories but if you like Mr Sherlock Holmes you will love this book.

The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes is the last of the Holmes short story collections written by Arthur Conan Doyle. In general, the stories are not as deep as the previous publications, but most are more fun to read and are somewhat more innovative than the previous Holmes stories. Some of the plots tend more toward the horror (e.g. a possible vampire), medical fiction (e.g. humans taking monkey DNA), and twisted financial scam type of storylines. I think this may have been the first time that suicide was used to frame another individual in classic literature. The mysteries are almost never easy to figure out...mostly because the author doesn't provide you with the clues you need to solve the puzzles (unlike the previous books), so the surprise usually lasts until the end of each story. Great fun that can be ingested in bite size pieces when you need to kill a few minutes at a time. A fitting end for one of the most enduring characters ever created.

It is not worth ten dollars. Chapters aren't marked in the contents, words are frequently broken up with spaces, and random blank pages are littered throughout.
