Frygtens dal af Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1915)

    JonathanGorman: The Valley of Fear reminded me a lot of Red Harvest and I can't but help to wonder if Hammett had read Valley of Fear. (At the least they probably draw from some of the same inspirations.

El Valle del Miedo, publicada por entregas en el Strand magazine entre septiembre de 1914 y mayo de 1915, es el séptimo tomo -y la cuarta u última novela- de la serie de nueve volúmnees de que consta la colección Sherlock Holmes / El Canon, que reúne todos los relatos y novelas de Sherlock Holmes tal y como aparecieron en su día.

Five stars for the first half, a lot less for the dreary second half.

In my eyes, it's novels like this that show that Doyle was really itching to write non-Holmes stories, even when he was writing Holmes stories. The first half is a decent Holmes and Watson mystery, but the second half is a mostly poorly-written story of a town held by a gang of criminals operating under a secret society banner.

The story itself isn't horrible, and it even has a fun little twist toward the end, but it's the cringe-worthy dialogue and consistent, quick mood changes from the "see here, you bounder, are you disagreeing with me, because I'll box your ears!" frame of mind to the "ah, you're a funny scoundrel, you are and I like you all the more for it!" with a couple of quick words from the man that originally angered him.

That, coupled with the, hey, we gotta kill this guy...all agree that's no problem, we'll get it done tonight! pacing and easy acceptance of murder with no conscience that just feels contrived.

Taken as a whole, it's one of the weaker Holmes stories, because of the above, and the fact that neither Holmes nor Watson appear in more than half the pages. ( )

I went into "The Valley of Fear" hesitantly, as I'd heard that it was the dud of the canon. Well, I can't say I agree...

The first half of the book is a satisfying little mystery. It's certainly clear that Conan Doyle was bored with Holmes by now, as he continued to fill the gaps in the timeline rather than further the adventures, and indeed he spends as much time with other characters as he does with the formerly addicted detective. However, the author's ability to write the Holmes/Watson relationship has never been smoother, and the opening scenes between them are delightful. The characters and setting of the mystery are all interesting enough. However, pretty much every trope, clue and element of the solution has been used in a previous work, suggesting to me that Conan Doyle probably should have stopped after "The Hound of the Baskervilles".

The second half, meanwhile, is a very enjoyable story. Unfortunately, it doesn't feature Holmes or Watson or - for that matter - the other elements which are referred to in the opening chapter, and which I assumed would play a role. Also - as in a few of the short stories - Conan Doyle's attempts to write authentic American and gangster dialogue comes off as both lazy and forced. Again, nothing here is new: the secret society, the romantic melodrama, the sometimes-awkward exposition. Indeed, the novel's entire structure is reminiscent of the first two novels, only I'd argue "Valley of Fear" bests both of them. It's easily more believable than the ludicrous [b:The Sign of Four|608474|The Sign of Four (Sherlock Holmes, #2)|Arthur Conan Doyle|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1299346921s/608474.jpg|2922650], and much better written than the at-times ponderous [b:A Study in Scarlet|102868|A Study in Scarlet (Sherlock Holmes, #1)|Arthur Conan Doyle|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1266472643s/102868.jpg|1997473].

In closing, no: there's nothing new here. And if you're reading the canon in order, you'll probably be annoyed by the promise of a follow-up to earlier stories which is never taken up. For newcomers to Holmes, I'd suggest reading the short stories and then [b:The Hound of the Baskervilles|8921|The Hound of the Baskervilles|Arthur Conan Doyle|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1255670340s/8921.jpg|3311984]. After that, if you're still craving Holmes, this might be an enjoyable - if unsatisfying - dessert. ( )

I wasn't a huge fan of the long segment from the past actions in America, but I did like the way it explained the character and actions of those in the main plot (other than, of course, the staple of Holmes and Watson).

Another excellent installment. ( )
