The Sign of Four, by Arthur Conan Doyle

It didn't really take me more than a month to read this fantastic book. I started the book on 3/1/10, but as I noted in an earlier post we then took a trip and went to the beach, and kept on doing things where a big book like this New Annotated Holmes was just too cumbersome to bring along. So I've been reading lots of other books on those trips and took a break from this one. I was thrilled to get back to it though, as this is a fantastic book, a great mystery, and again I can only say wonderful things about the annotations by Mr. Klinger. Seeing Watson fall in love, Holmes pick up, lose, and then regain the trail of the killers. A speeding boat chase with a blood-thirsty pygmy... Such a great book.
