    Redmond's Delicate Question

    This story has much to recommend it, including international intrigue (but we've had that in "The Second Stain"), the return of Mycroft Holmes, and the appearance of Holmes and Watson as housebreakers. But its strongest assets surely are its first sentence and its elements of Victorian high technology, both submarines and railroads. Without this story, would Sherlockian science fiction be as easy as it seems to be?
