Review: The Adventure of the Final Problem (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #11) by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Adventure of The Final Problem (The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes, #11)The Adventure of The Final Problem by Arthur Conan Doyle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

‘The Adventure of the Final Problem’ is the final short story which makes up the collected novel of ‘The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes’.
This short story introduces Sherlock Holmes’s greatest opponent, the criminal mastermind Professor James Moriarty. Holmes arrives at Dr. John Watson’s residence one evening in a somewhat agitated state and with grazed and bleeding knuckles. Much to Watson’s surprise, he had apparently escaped three separate murder attempts that day after a visit from Professor Moriarty, who warned Holmes to withdraw from his pursuit of justice against him to avoid any regrettable outcome.
This short story was originally written by the author to kill of Sherlock Holmes and conclude the series, however, despite the intended end, I really enjoyed this read mainly because it wrapped up everything in a bright and dramatic flare.
Congratulations to Arthur Conan Doyle on writing such an extravagant short story!
