I was not bad as SH stories go. Boiled down, it is about a young Sherlock before the days of Watson in which he becomes friends with Teddy Roosevelt in his younger days. Holmes assists the NY police dept with a murder that eventually turns out to be an assasination plot against the President.
It uses alot of quotes from the Canon as well as actual quotes from Roosevelt.
The story does not drag but I question some of Holmes methods considering this is his younger days and he ends up doing things that you would expect later in his career, for example ordering a NY police officer to stay at the scene of crime till he can return, it is explained but it still stretches reason a bit.
The story is told from TR point of view, as if he had replaced Watson so to speak.
I have read worse and have read better but I would recommend giving it a glance.
