The Adventure of the Speckled Band (Adventures of Sherlock Holmes)

The Adventure of the Speckled Band (Adventures of Sherlock Holmes)The Adventure of the Speckled Band by David Eastman
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This isn't the edition I read, but I can't find the right one. This story has always fascinated me. There are a few mysteries that stand out because their solution is so novel and yet fits all the facts. Like Murder on the Orient Express and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, The Adventure of the Speckled Band has a unique solution that fits all the facts. It is very hard to see the solution until it is solved by Sherlock Holmes because it is so clever, and yet I can see some diabolical person trying to do it.
