Original better than here 3-4* overall, but style remeniscent. Details are elaborately embellished, meander, miss point. Holmes does not catch whodunit. Motives and results are mixed up. Magazine submissions, Strand https://www.goodreads.com/review/show... and Conan https://www.goodreads.com/review/show..., are spaced better, widely.

It was fun to read new Sherlock Holmes stories again, but it seemed like Dr. Watson had a bit of an ignorance complex. I'm re-reading some of the Doyle stories for comparison.
