Review by: Erin Kiyonaga on Oct. 16, 2013 :
An excellent light story! Doesn't take very long to read while still long enough to live our the great plot. Well written staying with the original Holmesian structure and spirit. I'd recommend giving it a read.

Fantastic story! Very enjoyable. The plot is great - and the climax is quite neat! I'd recommend this one - as well as the others in the "Fireside Collection" series!
