fake problems band

the speckled band is A+ i’m so glad acd has good taste in his own work. the villain is absolutely heartless, and the victim’s history is so affecting. it’s a great example of the fact that holmes was solicitous and respectful of women, and was very sensitive to the vulnerable place that women held in society. it’s a creepy, sickeningly familiar story. holmes and watson are heroic in the most satisfying way.
