I had trouble getting into this one. I was really stuck around page 80, but I wanted to see it to the end (I really like Sherlock Holmes). I'm glad I stuck with it because the mystery really picked up. I surprisingly wasn't sure at all how things were going to end and how two seemingly unconnected mysteries were going to be linked, but the end was good. Not at all what I was expecting, but the explanations and reason Holmes gave were satisfying.
