Nice set of problems. I'm delighted it's back in print.,

This review is from: Chess Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes: Fifty Tantalizing Problems of Chess Detection (Paperback)
I am not a chess player, but I found this set of problems in "chess logic" thoroughly entertaining. To understand (and possibly to solve) these requires only an understanding of the rules of chess. "Sherlock Holmes" provides very thorough solutions and explanations for the early problems within the text. Later problems are merely stated with solutions provided at the end of the book. The problems range from relatively easy to quite challenging. The presentation is entertaining throughout. I hope that the publisher intends to keep this book in print -- and to consider re-publication of the companion volume on "Chess Mysteries of the Arabian Knights" (which I found equally enjoyable).
