The Boscome Valley Mystery - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Hello Bookworms!,

            I have another review from the world of Sherlock Holmes. This time it’s The Boscombe Valley Mystery by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.


            A young man’s father has been murdered. All the evidence points to the young man and he has been arrested. The young man and the authorities now look to Sherlock Holmes to prove whether or not the young man really could’ve killed his father. According to the evidence, it is improbable that anyone other than the young man really committed this crime. But at Sherlock says, when you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains however improbable must be the truth. The question is not can Sherlock Holmes solve the mystery, its can he solve it before the young man goes to trial and is hanged for murder.


            I liked The Boscombe Valley Mystery because it was not only a mystery but it was a bit suspenseful. Unfortunately for me it was a tad bit slow moving in the middle even for a short story. But the ending made up for it. I would recommend the Boscombe Valley Mystery to mystery lovers everywhere.

** This is the book I am using to read the Sherlock Holmes stories. I like the layout of the book, the only drawback is that it is not a complete version of the original Sherlock Holmes works some of the short stories were not included. However, it does include the whole novel “The Hounds of Baskervilles” and the short stories are published in the same fashion as they originally were in The Strand with all the illustrations by Sidney Paget. At just $10 I recommend it to anyone who wants to become acquainted with the original Sherlock Holmes works for the first time like myself.
