Review: The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The Valley of Fear by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
The first half of this novel Holmes and Watson help the investigation into the death of John Douglas in Birlstone, Sussex after figuring out a message Holmes received warning of Douglas safety. The mystery and Holmes' analysis is wonderful, and then Doyle ruins the novella by the overextended backstory that is only saved by the twist ending.
