Read in March, 2012

This was my third big book of Sherlock Holmes stories in recent month. It was excellent, as always. This compilation of stories included "Silver Blaze" ('widely regarded as Holmes finest single short story'). Holmes is quite quotable: "Nothing clears up a case so much as stating it to another person..." "Inspector Gregory, to whom the case has been committed, is an extremely competent officer. Were he but gifted with imagination he might rise to great heights in his profession." "A man always finds it hard to realize that he may have finally lost a woman's love, however badly he may have treated her." More good advice: "Now, my dear fellow, we can't help matters by making ourselves nervous about them, so let me implore you to go to bed, and so be fresh for whatever may await you tomorrow."
