I am getting into the habit of listening to books on my Kindle while I work on things. I like shorter books because I can enjoy a whole story in one task. This was one of the books I listened to and enjoyed.
I have never been big into Sherlock Holmes, but I do enjoy his stories that I have read. This is an obvious play on Sherlock Holmes, and it made it so interesting. The story was well structured and the plot was very interesting. It was free from violence and objectionable material that one normally finds in mystery stories.
My favorite part? The story did a good job at teaching a moral lesson without sounding like a sermon; a hard accomplishment for a short story. The message was not just tacked on at the end, it was woven into the story.
I recommend this short story for those who love light mysteries, short stories, and moral stories.
