One of the classic Sherlock Holmes collections, including what little Watson tells of the tragic story of the Reichenbach falls (not that that lasted very long).
I do wonder what he'd make of modern society. I don't think he could conclude nearly as much from style of dress as he does, in particular. Knowing the mud for 20 miles in every direction, on the other hand, would still be darned useful.
I'm a fan of the stories, but I see I haven't read them in years. It was time.
