In this short story, Holmes is visited by a perturbed proper English gentleman, John Scott Eccles, who wishes to discuss something “grotesque”. No sooner has he arrived at 221B Baker Street than Inspector Gregson also shows up, along with Inspector Baynes of the Surrey Constabulary. They wish a statement from Eccles about the murder near Esher last night. A note in the dead man’s pocket indicates that Eccles said that he would be at the victim’s house that night.

Intricate two part mystery

After reading the Philip van Wulven short story, Sherlock Holmes Investgates The Case of Lady Chatter's Voodoo Dolls, in which voodoo threatens HM The Queen and the Empire, I decided to read a real Sherlock Holmes story in which voodoo makes at least a passing appearance.

The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge is a fairly long Sherlock Holmes short story by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, not one of the imitators. It was originally published in two parts, "The Singular Experience of Mr

"The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge" is the first story in the His Last Bow: 8 Stories story collection, the eighth publication in the Sherlock Holmes series.

Holmes receives a visit from John Eccles, who tells him how he was invited to stay last night at a new friend, Mr Garcia's, lodge, only to awake to everyone having vanished. But in the middle of telling his story, the police arrive with the news that Garcia has been found murdered. Holmes investigates.

This was a typical Doyle story, but so

Well the Granada series surely toned this one down to a palatable taste. Aside from some parts I liked this one

Have gone through 40 hours plus of Holmes, I've learned that "elementary" is not even close to one of the most used words. In fact, it was used maybe three times that I've noticed. "Singular," on the other hand, is not a very singular word.

Review of this story:

According this story, Sherlock Holmes is a private detective as well as hero of the story and Dr. Watson is another one important person of this story.

Following Sherlock Holmes through a series of his investigations with Watson is really engaging. Most of them always start with some form of peculiar detail and then turns around to change around just from the little details that he observes.

That is the charm of Sherlock Holmes and it keeps us wondering what his next step

Sherlock's client Mr.John Scott Eccles is a suspect in the murder of Mr.Aloysius Garcia of Wisteria Lodge, whose house Eccles visited the previous night on his invitation. The cook and servant fled after their master's death. Sherlock, yet, is of the opinion that Garcia invited Eccles because he had a criminal enterprise and desired to establish an alibi. As Sherlock and Inspector Baynes proceed in their investigation, they come across Old Jacobean Grange of High Gables less than half a mile acr ...more

The only reason I didn't rate it five stars is because I did not like some of the themes presented in this story. Some of the description used for the mulatto servant seemed very racist but I also understand that the author belonged to a different era. However, the story was still as interesting as any other of Doyle's stories.

My first experience with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I was not accustomed to his writing style, which meant I had to re-read certain passages to fully get their meaning, but over all an enjoyable short story.

I'm practically reading a Holmes mystery a day. I enjoy them.

Wisteria Lodge starts with Mr. Scott Eccles going to Holmes with a peculiar case and soon after, he is joined by two police constables. Mr. Scott Eccles had visited a new friend, Mr. Garcia but when he wakes up, no one is in the house. The police come with news that Mr. Garcia had been murdered. What follows in an investigation (or rather investigations as Mr.Banes also investigates) to see what occurred.

The second part of the story is

Racist Watson is just so weird, after enjoying this character in adaptations. I mean look at this : "I thought that it was a mummified negro baby, and then it seemed a very twisted and ancient monkey." Not cool Arthur! I mean I get that this was written in another era, but it's good that Holmes does most of the analyzing, because despite being a doctor, Watson's anatomical judgements make him sound like some illiterate small minded peasant. Though, this story is Arthur Conan Doyle at peak racism ...more

I found this case rather complicated that I had to re-read the second part again. I know complications make the story interesting, but it wasn't that sort. I felt like he wanted to twist things to make it incredible or something but it didn't feel like that.

The first short story in His Last Bow by Arthur Conan Doyle. A man visits Sherlock Holmes to ask for help when his friend is missing, and soon the missing friend is found dead. Complex and entertaining.

Quick enjoyable read

I can’t believe I missed this morning, I thought I had read all of the holes works. This one is perhaps a little less satisfying than a lot of the stores, it’s not incredibly intricate, but still a pleasure to read.

This one was just OK. It was missing something-- I didn't feel like the reader was given the chance to solve the mystery along with Holmes. I did like the inclusion of a very intelligent police inspector.

Doyle definitely has themes that he likes to stick to in his stories, but I liked the fact that the police officer wasn't a complete idiot in this one.

This was a long and drawn out Sherlock Holmes mystery, but it's a good mystery nonetheless, with excellent deductions of clues from the master detective.

Aside from the occasional racially-tinged passage, The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge is easily one if the best Holmes stories above read. What truly establishes this story as a testament to Doyle's writing is the amount of characterization and story pacing that compose this story. The plot flowed a a fantastic pace with plenty of developments to spice things up while the many characters involved in the affair all bristled with individuality and played a role in the story. A fantastic read!

Another of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's marvelous mystery stories.At the outset , the plot seemed to be quite complex but as it unraveled through Holmes's intelligent scheme of deduction by gaining evidence, things fell into place. A fresh thing which I found in this story was , a character who did in a way match up to the ways to deduction and reasoning to solve a crime like Holmes.The character was Inspector Baynes. He seems to have quite a bright future in his field.

What can I possibly say about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his incredibly famous creation, Sherlock Holmes? I don’t know what I was thinking by not reading any of these novels and short stories for the first twenty-four-years of my life, but I have now (at least somewhat) amended this grievous error.

Not my favourite Sherlock Holmes adventure by a while, but still a good read. I always feel that Holmes is not particularly likable, though also not easy to dislike - he just is. This is one of the books where that comes across for me, although of course Watson is his likeable self. A nice short mystery with a satisfactory ending, the Inspector was great too!

First Doyle gives very unrelated clues. Then in the other half he give a simple cause of crime. But as always the story was gripping and intense. He managed such complexity without the use of forensics and technology which is quite appreciable.

Sir 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 re
