Review: The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #9) by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #9)The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

‘The Adventure of the Greek Interpreter’ is the ninth short story of the eleven (or twelve, depending on the edition) works which created the collected novel of ‘The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes’.
On a summer evening, while engaged in in an aimless conversation that has come round to the topic of hereditary attributes, Doctor Watson learns that Sherlock Holmes, far from being a one-off in terms of his powers of observation and deductive reasoning, in fact has an elder brother whose skills, or so Holmes claims, outstrip even his own. As a consequence of this, Watson becomes acquainted with the Diogenes Club and his friend’s brother, Mycroft.
This short was one of the most engaging reads I have had the pleasure of laying my hands on. I enjoyed this new insight into Holmes’s life and the action-packed mystery and deduction which took place.
Congratulations to Arthur Conan Doyle on writing a charged short story!
