Review: The Adventure of the Resident Patient (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #8) by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Adventure of the Resident Patient (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #8)The Adventure of the Resident Patient by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

‘The Adventure of the Resident Patient’ is the eighth short story of the eleven (or twelve, depending on the edition) which makes up the collected novel of ‘The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes’.
In this short, Doctor Percy Trevelyan brings Holmes an unusual problem. Having been a brilliant student but a poor man, Dr. Trevelyan has found himself a participant in an unusual business arrangement. A man named Blessington, claiming to have some money to invest, has set Dr. Trevelyan up in premises with a prestigious address and paid all his expenses.
I didn’t think that this short was the best of all the other that the author had written. In fact, it was fairly average yet there were still the enjoyable qualities of a good ending and reasonable deductions.
Congratulations to Arthur Conan Doyle on writing an enjoyable short story!
