The "Adventure" at Wisteria Lodge is a bizarre set of circumstances including not only a Voodoo side-track, but a despot exile as well! These inclusions certainly make this Holmes’... More > tale stand out from the rest. What points the finger at the villain more clearly than saying that he is ugly, savage of temperament and creepy looking? In some cases, in this book, they turn natural prejudices against you, by revealing that the most savage looking person is not the killer, and this was good. Overall, Sherlock was fairly charming, as usual, but a guest detective from the country was the star of the show. This is great, to break up the monotony of reading a lot of Holmes. An interesting premise for a story, for sure, and if that is what you are looking for, you won’t be disappointed. The greatest sleuth of all time has never felt more "average."< Less
