Summary

In Sherlock Holmes and The Dead Boer at Scotney Castle, the great consulting detective comes up against the rich and powerful Kipling League. Dr Watson recounts the extraordinary events which took place on a spacious early summer day in the Sussex and Kent countryside in 1904.

None of the earlier stories chronicling the adventures of Sherlock Holmes compares to the strange circumstances which determined Watson to take up his pen to relate this extraordinary adventure against Holmes' express wishes.

Not great.

It's fine if you live in region of Scotney Castle for a bit of harmless amusement, but neither written nor narrated as ACD, JHW would have done.

Boring

Could not finish. Way
too much non action dialog. Just not like typical Holmes story!
