Review: A Case of Identity (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, #3) by Arthur Conan Doyle

A Case of Identity (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, #3)A Case of Identity by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

‘A Case of Identity’ is the third novelette in the novel, ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’.
This short story follows Miss Mary Sutherland, who, angry and beside herself with feelings of loss, asks Sherlock Holmes to solve the sudden, mysterious disappearance of a shy and attentive man she has grown to love upon the very day they were to be married.
I really looked forward to reading this short, as it touched upon a case where romance was obvious. I am a great lover of romance, and this short didn’t disappoint. However, the mystery aspect of the short story was very badly covered.
I solved the mystery from page one. I even knew exactly how the rest of the story would pan out. This was really disappointing as the short didn’t even highlight the best of Sherlock Holmes.
Congratulations to Arthur Conan Doyle on writing the short story!
