The Valley of Fear is one of my favourite Sherlock Holmes novels, and second only to The Sign of Four - it's a cracking detective novel, a masterclass in how it's done by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This is Holmes at his best, in a format that's unusual and incredibly interesting when coupled with the genre.

See, the second half of the novel is set twenty years after the first half, in which Holmes is presented with an unusual case - he's asked to investigate the apparent death of a man called Douglas, who appears to have shot himself in the head with an American-style sawed-off shotgun.

However, not everything is as it seems, and the conclusion of Holmes' investigation leads you in to the second half of the adventure. That was the best part, following a young man named McMurdo through a giant conspiracy which, frankly, I don't have the time to talk about. Just grab a copy and read it yourself - I promise you won't regret it.

This book is in two halves. That is half the book tell why the other half is happening. Of course Sherlock solves the case and all is almost well. Well worth the read.

I enjoy reading books on my Kindle but must actually admit I prefer the classics in paper form, not sure why, as modern books seem absolutely apt for an electronic age! So classics in classic form for me, however a good read and I always enjoy seeing what Sherlock and Watson will get up to next, even though after years of TV and Movie adaptation you sort of know it doesn't stop sometimes forgetting the subleties!
