The Sign of Four: Chapter 2

Chapter 2: “The Statement of the Case”

Summary: An attractive (in Watson’s opinion) girl comes to ask for Sherlock’s help. Her father went missing several years back and then for six years she would receive a pearl. Then she got a letter telling her to meet someone, but it’s not in her father’s handwriting.

Reaction: The case has been set up, and it seems interesting. I hope it puzzles Sherlock a little at least.

Prediction: Well, they’re going to meet this man with her and I’m sure a case will present itself. And perhaps Watson will get his love interest?

Why This Book Is a Classic: The classic case set-up: An attractive girl comes to detective to ask for help; he helps.
