Review: The Adventure of the Reigate Squire (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #6) by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Adventure of the Reigate Squire (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #6)The Adventure of the Reigate Squire by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

‘The Adventure of the Reigate Squire’ is the sixth short story of the eleven (or twelve, depending on the edition) works which make up the novel, ‘The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes’.
In this short story Watson takes Holmes to a friend’s estate near Reigate in Surrey to rest after a rather strenuous case in France. Holmes finds that his services are needed here, but he also finds that his recent illness serves him well.
I didn’t find this short story particularly enchanting or in any way interesting. This short takes its undeniable place as my least favourite of all that I have read so for in the Sherlock Holmes series.
I feel that the plot and the concept were not strong enough a driving force to really engage the reader.
Congratulations to Arthur Conan Doyle on writing ‘The Adventure of the Reigate Squire’.
