Arthur Conan Doyle

 

The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

 

Thoroughly enjoyable. You can see why this detective model has been copied so many times: these short stories are the hour episodes of today’s ubiquitous crime shows. Doyle manages a wonderful balance between intellectually entertaining crime solving, character development of Holmes and Watson, action, and turnover of each tale’s novel guests and events.
