This is a book that is definitely worth reading. The story revolves around the mysterious death of Lord Backwater while Holmes and Watson have to figure out who did it using strange clues that they have to make sense of. The plot is well paced throughout and while it might not be amazing and innovative, it is definitely interesting and will grab your attention. The secondary characters are developed enough so that they are interesting and are not included too much in the story so that you get tired of reading about them. The dialogue between characters is also well written and won’t make you want to skip over. The British terminology used in the book is not so much that a reader from North America won’t understand, but enough so that it sounds like it’s based in England.
