“It’s devilish, Mr. Holmes, devilish!” “It is not of this world!”
The adventure for the June meeting was listed, in 1927, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as his 9th favourite out of 12. He referred to it as “…grim and new.” Sherlock Holmes referred to it as “Strangest case I have ever handled.”
We find our great detective in Cornwall for health reasons. A quiet and quaint cottage where Dr. Watson is hoping his friend will find time for relaxation. But to his dismay, Holmes is drawn into a mystery. A “Cornish Horror”.
Please join us for our June study session as we discuss “The Adventure of the Devil’s Foot”
Tuesday, June 5th at 7:00 PM in the lounge at Hampton Place.
Bonus question for those attending the meeting: What card game were the Tregennis siblings playing?
