BOOK EXCERPTS

Read an Excerpt

Watson mentions “The Darlington Substitution Scandal” in “A Scandal in Bohemia,” which suggests that he might have eventually sent this manuscript to The Strand, but this is purely speculative. Still, one cannot help wondering why, in the case of such a delicate matter, he mentioned Darlington at all. Perhaps Watson was so offended by that individual’s beastly behaviour that in spite of Holmes’s high moral character, he just could not bear to let the scoundrel escape without some trace of censure attached to his name.
