S,
Like so many others, I thought that this short story was quite average Sherlock Holmes story in general.

Except for one, very crucial thing - the bit where John is shot.

Then my friend’s wiry arms were round me, and he was leading me to a chair.
“You’re not hurt, Watson? For God’s sake, say that you are not hurt!”

Makes for a good read but the mystery isn't very gripping. at the start it was even slightly comical as Watson himself states. Gave 4 stars just for this particular exchange which shows how deep the friendship between Holmes and Watson runs.

So this was an okay-read until...

It was worth a wound–it was worth many wounds–to know the depth of loyalty and love which lay behind that cold mask. The clear, hard eyes were dimmed for a moment, and the firm lips were shaking. For the one and only time I caught a glimpse of a great heart as well as of a great brain. All my years of humble but single-minded service culminated in that moment of revelation.

Needless to say, this has become my favorite Sherlock short story to date.

In this story, Holmes receives a letter from a Nathan Garrideb of 136 Little Ryder Street,[2] asking for help in a most peculiar quest. He is looking for another man with his unusual surname, for it will mean a $5,000,000 inheritance for him. He has been approached by another man, John Garrideb of Kansas, who says that he needs to find others with the same last name.
The American Garrideb comes to see Holmes and Watson at 221B Baker Street, and is apparently not very pleased that Nathan Garrideb

The Adventure of the Three Garridebs was indeed a somewhat singular addition to the Holmes chronology. What starts out as an oddball adventure filled with eccentric characters rapidly turns into a more sinister and life-threatening situation. A nice and quick read. It was over a bit too soon.

Ja, best een leuke twist.

Arthur Conan Doyle was born the third of ten siblings on 22 May 1859 in Edinburgh, Scotland. His father, Charles Altamont Doyle, was born in England of Irish descent, and his mother, born Mary Foley, was Irish. They were married in 1855.

Although he is now referred to as "Conan Doyle", the origin of this compound surname (if that is how he meant it to be understood) is uncertain. His baptism record
