Praise

“In its pages you will find adventure, action, romance, love and self-sacrifice, hair’s-breadth escape and reckless courage, gallantry, panache and a droll, backhand humor that rivals that of P.G. Wodehouse. You will also find yourself, even more than with the celebrated stories of Holmes and Watson, in the hands of an indisputable artist. For more than any other adventure stories I know, these stories have a power to move the reader.” — Michael Chabon on NPR’s “You Must Read This”

“…One of the cleverest of Conan Doyle’s lighter works, full of spirit, ingenuity, and drollery.” — The New York Times

“Brigadier Gerard is, after Holmes and Watson, Conan Doyle’s most successful literary creation.” — Julian Symons
