Sherlock Holmes Investigates. The Pink Jewel Conundrum
This is a very short story, which in itself is OK but, perhaps due to the author's desire to make it a short story, much of the background, color and details were omitted from the narrative. The story was a bit thin, lacking suspense and excitement.
Yet it was enjoyable enough to say I liked it, (I do like Sherlock Holmes mysteries, but I am not a fan of the current films starting Robert Downey portraying Holmes as I don't quite know what). It was a fair effort at writing in the style of Doyle, who also wrote some fairly short essays on Holmes's adventures. The ending, in my opinion, should not have been the ending, but rather should have woven into the story earlier and used to misdirect the reader while not falsifying the clues Holmes is able to decipher.
One final word, the title, The Pink Jewel Conundrum, does not seem really appropriate. When I began reading this story I didn't realize it would be so short, and so I supposed what I was reading was a type of introduction to a greater mystery since a pink jewel was not part of the story; I was surprised to discover I reached the end of the book, (no, I'm not much of a detective myself, which is obvious if I didn't discern to size of the book I picked up to read!!!).
