really liked it

"[...] I must admit, Watson, that you have some power of selection which atones for much which I deplore in your narratives. Your fatal habit of looking at everything from the point of view of a story instead of as a scientific exercise has ruined what might have been an instructive and even classical series of demonstrations. You slur over work of the utmost finesse and delicacy in order to dwell upon sensational details which may excite but cannot possibly instruct the reader." Holmes to Watson, The Abbey Grange, p.330

Doctor Watson abandons his practice and moves in with his friend Sherlock Holmes when the later suddenly reappears in London three years after plunging to his death down the Reichenback Falls in Switzerland. Thirteen incredible cases of kidnapping, murder and theft all solved thanks to Holmes' "superior intellect" and Victorian Britain's excellent railway system.
