Favorite Passage

"We have his cab," said Sherlock Holmes. "It will serve to take him to Scotland Yard. And now, gentlemen," he continued, with a pleasant smile, "we have reached the end of our little mystery. You are very welcome to put any questions that you like to me now, and there is no danger that I will refuse to answer them."

Review of Book

This book, a mystery novel, does a very good job of keeping the details in there, but not revealing the truth until the end via the antagonist or Sherlock himself. All the facts come together, however you could figure it out on your own...if you're Sherlock Holmes, that is.
