Brilliant! It's got suspense and action, all beautifully constructed, and to top it off, there is the constant irony of a conceited colonel, who thinks he's God's gift to the French army and hasn't a clue about the rituals of English fox-hunting, his vanity converting every reproach into a congratulation.

I was so pleased to see a Doyle story here . . . he is one of my favorites. This story was fantastic. Thank you!

This is simply the best Story of the Week . . . The French officer's conceit makes the story. Thanks for publishing this one.
