Great collection of Victorian mysteries! Includes Doyle's "Adventure of the Copper Beeches", but all the others show lots of variety in styles and hero/ines. The original clerical sleuths, women detectives, and other Great Detectives are all here. Just a short read before you go to sleep...

A book of Sherlock Holmes-like detective stories

This book is an enjoyable light read. Even though most of the writers have been forgotten over the years -some of them for good reason- there nevertheless are some nuggets in this collection. The short stories by Kipling, Chesterton, Doyle and a few others are very well written and suspenseful, making it apparent why their works have endured over the years.
