I enjoyed it a lot. I felt it added nicely to the "real" Holmes
stories, and didn't do a lot of violence to the character.
Unfortunately, every succeeding book in the story became less a
detective story and more a feminist rant. I forget what the last one I
read was; I do suggest you don't read past the first or second.
