The Tragedy of the Korosko – Arthur Conan Doyle
This book is one of the most pleasing pieces of work that has come from Dr. Conan Doyle’s versatile pen. There is not a jarring note sounded in the whole story, there is not a single character introduced that is not sympathetically pictured, that does not make immediate and successful appeal to the imagination of the reader. The plot is full of dramatic power, and it does not nag for an instant. Even the political discussions are lively and entertaining reading. A Desert Drama may not take rank as literature with Micah Clarke or The White Company, but it is most emphatically a book to be read and enjoyed by thousands.
