The last twelve stories written about Holmes and Watson, these tales reflect the disillusioned world of the 1920s in which they were written. Some of the sharpest turns of wit in English literature are contrasted by dark images of psychological tragedy, suicide, and incest in a collection of tales that have haunted generations of readers.

Good conclusion to the Holmes series. It's a bit odd to see such a quintessentially Victorian character in the 1920s. The stories written from Holmes' point of view are not as good as Watson's, as Holmes points out himself. Still enjoyable overall.

Sherlock was a decent companion through Europe. Just wish I had traveled through Switzerland so I could have tossed this collection over Reichenbach Falls.

At this point in the collection, the author was tired of the character, and while these stories could have branched out and been interesting, they were on the whole just okay.

I look forward to reading some modern takes on the main characters in the near future.
