The adventures of Sherlock Holmes, volume 2, episode 5: "The crooked man" and episode 6: "The Speckled Band". Doyle was considered then and now the epitome of logical thinking applied to solving crimes that seemingly baffle the mind. Maybe so. But in "The crooked man" we have accept a man crippled to the point of being bent over and using a stout tree limb to move about is able to traverse to the crime scene without being seen and return home without being scene. He clumps his stout cane with every step forward. People always look to see what they hear with their ears. He has to leave his room at the inn where people are present, go down streets that others use, cross the land of an estate, and then repeat all these steps to get back home. No one sees him? I don't think the people were unobservant to that stage. In "The Speckled Band" veteran actor Jeremy Kemp makes quite a good impression. Kemp was even more noted an actor in England than series stars Jeremy Brett and David Burke. But these stories are still captivating because they seemed to be the first of their kind and the introduction is all important. All other authors seem to be playing off the Conan Doyle spirit.
