MEH! This one failed in all the ways the A Study in Scarlett did as well. I had hope that we'd avoid another journey to Utah in this one, but instead we got a journey to India instead. The first third had me intrigued, the second third was a trudge, and the third third was skimmed very quickly. I shall take a break from Sherlock for a while, in hopes that my disappointment can be abated by time, and will return to try my hand at the short stories. Maybe those won't suffer from having half their text devoted to the killer spilling their guts after being caught.
