The second volume of the Sherlock Holmes novels and stories, containing The Hound of the Baskervilles, The Valley of Fear, His Last Bow and The Case Book of Sherlock Holmes, the first two being novels, the last two collections of short stories. There is not much new I can say about this book that I haven’t already said about the previous volume. I liked the novels a lot better than the short stories, because you read more about all sides of the story and the story gets more time to build up to the final reveal. The stories are pretty nice, but like in the previous book, sometimes a bit predictable because it is (now) a familiar theme, or stories are alike to each other. Still, this classic must read gets four out of five stars.
