Review: The Five Orange Pips (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, #5) by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Five Orange Pips (The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, #5)The Five Orange Pips by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

‘The Five Orange Pips’ is the fifth short story in the novel, ‘The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes’. This short story was different compared to the others as it didn’t end as happily as the others nor did the connections between events which Sherlock Holmes deduced were quite as clear as the others.
This short was also a great deal darker than the others. It had me gripped as soon as the clues started revealing themselves. It also left me wanting for more rather than feeling satisfied or complete.
‘The Five Orange Pips’ told a tale of mystery, scandal and murder that may have been committed by the Ku Klux Klan in London.
Congratulations to Arthur Conan Doyle on writing such an intriguing short story!
