Currently residing on my bedstand is a 1400 page mammoth of a book containing the complete Sherlock Holmes stories. As a secret detective fan – Agatha Christie is my favourite guilty pleasure – my hopes were big for the detective of all detectives. But I must say that the plots sometimes are a bit, well, far sought. I mean a secret Eastern treasure as murder motive, that must surely be a decoy? Hmm no. Ah well, at least the art of deduction is more intriguing.
