    Redmond's Delicate Question

    It's pretty well accepted that this story is about, among other things, the evils of bad marriages and the need for improvements in the divorce law — an issue to which Arthur Conan Doyle devoted much time, money and energy. Is it possible to see other Sherlock Holmes storise also as calls for specific legal and social reforms?
