The Reigate Squires Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Reigate Squires

Not one of the better-known Holmes tales, but a fine one nonetheless, the Reigate Squires concerns the violent death of a servant in a fairly rural neighborhood where several burglaries have taken place. Just about all Holmes has to go on is a slip of paper, the torn corner of a sheet that evidently requests an assignation late at night at the spot where the victim fell. Holmes manages to read an astounding amount from this seemingly sketchy clue.
