As a Sherlock Holmes novel, it was one of the worst. The reader figures out what is going on long before Holmes, which makes reading the rest tedious. The secondary characters take over the plot and they're interesting, but not as compelling as Holmes or Watson. Unless your into the hardships of London for the poor and women- skip.
