Review: The Adventure of the Naval Treaty (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #10) by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Naval Treaty  (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #10)The Naval Treaty by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

‘The Adventure of the Naval Treaty’ is the tenth short story of the eleven (or twelve, depending on the edition) works which create the collected novel, ‘The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes’.
In this short story, France and Russia will pay anything to know England’s naval plans. A desperate thief acts. The disgraced official loses his mind, then months later, calls for Sherlock Holmes, because the treaty is still secret.
I really didn’t think much of this novel. First of all the plot was boring and the mystery and intrigue which I normally find of interest was simply lacking. Secondly, I disliked these characters which were introduced as well as the general structure of the short. I expected a lot more drama and mystery than what appeared in the novel. France and Russia hardly get mentioned in this short.
Congratulations to Arthur Conan Doyle on writing ‘The Adventure of the Naval Treaty’.
