A Study in Scarlet, the greatest of all detective mysteries, is also perhaps much more a work about literature and writing than is generally realised, from the early reference to Thomas Carlyle, of whom Holmes has never even heard, to the line fro..." Read more of this review »

Beth Half way through and I'm laughung out load at Jocelyn and Kyla's adventure. Really, throw a wedding ring in Townlake. There would be a dozen homeless people diving in to get it. I love Kyla taking on Aladdin and the looks exchanged between Jocelyn and Kyla. I was glad I was alone reading it since anyone would think I'd lost what little sense I had. Thanks for a wonderful escape so far
