Review: The Adventure of the Stockbroker’s Clerk (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #3) by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Adventure of the Stockbroker's Clerk (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #3)The Adventure of the Stockbroker’s Clerk by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

‘The Adventure of the Stockbroker’s Clerk’ is the third short story of the eleven (or twelve, depending on the edition) collected works which make up the novel, ‘The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes’.
In this short, a young clerk, Hall Pycroft, consults Holmes with his suspicions concerning a company that has offered him a very well-paid job.
I enjoyed reading this short, however I felt that it was yet another imitation of some of the previous short stories which the author had written. It follows the same structure and this proves to be somewhat of a let down.
Definitely not the best of the Sherlock Holmes short stories, yet still enjoyable.
Congratulations to Arthur Conan Doyle on writing a great short story!
