The Five Orange Pips
The Five Orange Pips by Arthur Conan Doyle

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

In this day and age, everybody knows what K.K.K. stands for. Therefore the “revelation” of a secret organisation, was an obvious deduction straight off the page. A little disappointing, particularly as the story ends rather abruptly, with no real resolution. Yes, we have identified the perpetrator(s), but then what?

Hence, a much shorter story than I was expecting. In the 1890s, this would indeed have been a mystery of the highest order for the readership of very localised societies, where global news was hard to come by and travel was much more prohibitive.

One more mystery solved. On to the next.
