    Redmond's Delicate Question

    The action in this tale moves from sophisticated central London to the new, tawdry, distant suburbs -- and to Arthur Conan Doyle's own neighbourhood, for he lived in Norwood from 1891 to 1897. Does Sherlock Holmes lose some of his glitter and appeal when he must move in these glamourless regions?
