A great book, with an ending that has a huge un-expected twist, Doyle takes this book, and puts you in London, solving the murder, all with an amazing plot, good characters and a mystery that mind boggling in the first half. He then in the second half takes you to somewhere out in the west, with Evil characters, major plot twist, a murder gang, revenge, and a good characters, then back to London where everything comes full circle, into a unexpected ending. That is what makes this Sherlock Holmes book, a GREAT read.
