The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, father of crime fiction, gives us another short story featuring master detective Sherlock Holmes. Famous for his intellectual prowess, his keen observation skills, and for giving Robert Downey Jr. his second blockbuster in as many years, Mr. Holmes is everybody's favorite detective. The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans is one of 56 Sherlock Holmes stories, and it's contained in the collection His Last Bow.
Holmes's brother Mycroft visits London with a set of secret submarine plans that were found on a government clerk's body (with head crushed). Three of the ten pages are missing. How did the clerk die? How did he get the plans? Who killed him? Where are the missing pages? How will the master of crime detection answer all of these questions?

I love getting involved in Holmes investigations... I'm not disappointed with any of sir Arthur's interesting tales... He really knows how to keep one interested... This adventure was especially well written and didn't allow for my usual deductions as even Holmes was confounded... Very enjoyable...

Once again I am delighted by the adventures of Mr. Holmes and his ever-present companion Dr. Watson. Doyle has a way of bringing you to 1895 London with his descriptive storytelling. Wonderful characters that I have become familiar with being a fond and avid reader of Sherlock Holmes' adventures. If u are a fan this story is sure to leave u turning pages.

It was good. I love all of the Sherlock Holmes stories. The only fault is that they do all start to blend together after reading several at a time.
