While it may have been a foregone conclusion that I would sing the praises of any book offering a confluence of Sherlock Holmes and chess, this is nonetheless a volume that can appeal to many readers: chess enthusiasts, puzzle aficionados, amateur Sherlockians, really anyone who enjoys crime novels or mysteries. One need not be a chess expert to appreciate the book. Indeed, the type of chess problem presented (retrograde analysis, . discerning what happened before, instead of solving in the other direction, .

Since these problems involve the same sort of logical reasoning that lies at the core of the Sherlock Holmes stories, Raymond Smullyan has aptly set each one within its own Holmes-Watson dialogue. In each case Holmes, by his remarkable powers of deduction, is able to demonstrate to his awed admirers precisely what must have happened, move by move, at the "scene of the crime" - the chess table. For example: what the missing piece is; what square it should be on; whether or not either side can castle.

Those who enjoy puzzles that require logical thinking but are bored by standard "logic puzzles" and chess problems will find this book a sheer delight. Each puzzle presents an innocuous-looking chess position and a seemingly impossible-to-answer question about it, such as, "What was White's previous move?" or "Is it legal for Black to castle now?" or "On which square must the White pawn be located?" The questions can all be answered by pure deduction; although some of the problems are in some sense "trick questions," there are no silly answers involving outright cheating of the kind commonly found in inferior puzzle books. The puzzles are fresh, original, entertaining, and deep. My only complaint is that in the first half of the book, there is no clear demarcation between the statement of the puzzle and the solution, so that the reader who likes tackling puzzles without any hints has to guess the point at which he should stop reading. This flaw does not occur in the second half of the book, however. Readers who enjoy this book may also want to buy the companion volume, "Chess Mysteries of the Arabian Knights," although as of this writing (July 2000) it is out of print.

I'm a fan of Smullyan's books. This book of problems of retrograde analysis in chess is fun and good mental exercise for those who enjoy that sort of thing. Could be a horrible experience for those who do not like chess or logic problems. Best or worst of both domains.

You have to be somewhat knowledgeable in chess and also like puzzles but a great book.

Bought this for my father who loves Sherlock and chess. It was like Christmas came early! He is very happy with it!

This was a really fun book to read, and a nice change of pace compared to usual chess puzzles. The plot itself wasn't that enticing, but the fun problems made up for it. I especially enjoyed the 2-3 "troll" problems near the end of the first section.

good read
The second is 'The Chess Mysteries of the Arabian Knights'

This one is much easier than the second.

The use of chess puzzles to demonstrate deductive and inductive logic is quite the feat. Great read for those who like chess or logic.
