I'm surprised at many of the comments regarding this particular narrative of Watson's take on Sherlock's handling of this case.

I was moved by Holmes' compassion and understanding of the circumstances which lead this former British expat "Australian/Brit Bush-ranger" (for Americans-Outlaw) who led a life a crime and skull skulduggery for most of his life.

Like all Sherlock Holmes books the one thing I really like is Watson's narration. If the narration is from Sherlock's point of view it would be less interesting.
I love the unique way Holmes solve the mystery and how observant he is. I also liked the fact that you don't have to read the rest of the series to read this book.

I love Sherlock Holmes but it is a little too difficult for me to read. There were some parts that I didn't understand. Charles McCarthy was killed right after fighting with his son. Most people accursed the son but Sherlock Holmes wasn't convinced - he tried to find out some little facts which was leading him innocent.

Nice book, easy English, but that story was so clear, only 2 persons who can be murderer. And how much is possible that women will kill her lover. But part about history which happend in Australia was at least bit interesting.
