In this short story, Sherlock Holmes went against Col. Moriarty, Prof. Moriarty's brother, unfortunately, it was overly complicated and Watson was made an idiot: Holmes was unwilling to tell Watson what exactly was going on and when Watson reacted, based on his incomplete information, Holmes' reaction was rather venomous and honestly, if I were Watson, I would have told Holmes to go to hell. This story undermined all the pleasure I took from reading the previous 4 stories.
Other than that, the first two stories - "The Execution of Sherlock Holmes" and "The Case of the Greek Key" - felt more like spy stories than mysteries. The first one was very MacGyver like, the second one reminded me of "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy" because Holmes was trying to find a mole.
In "The Case of the Peasenhall Murder" Holmes wasn't looking for a murderer, he was trying to prove that the accused did not do it; the murder itself remained unsolved.
And "The Case of the Phantom Chamberlain" was interesting only because Watson was allowed to actually do something and used his medical knowledge.
