Annaly Capital: Sherlock Holmes And The Mystery Of The Green Shoots





"In literature, it is difficult to find a protagonist more endearing, clever and flawed than Sherlock Holmes. Peerless in his attention to detail and his limitless powers of perception, what appears clear cut and evident to his trained senses bewilders those of lesser skills. His foil, Dr. Watson, his counterpart at Scotland Yard, the plodding Inspector Lestrade, and his arch enemy Professor Moriarty all wither in the face of Holmes’ masterful powers of logic and deduction. That said, I believe even the formidable Mr. Holmes would have a problem figuring out the truth behind the current economic state of affairs."
