I found this book, when I was actually looking for some interesting books about Sherlock Holmes that were not just short stories. As I also have some interest in chess (only playing casually/occasionally), I just gave it a shot and bought it.
Normally you don't tell people you are reading a book about chess, because "that's so nerdy", but when I answered their question about what I was reading, well, that seemed to be "nerdy even for [me]". Ofcourse, this is not a book for the majority of people. It's a book for those few people like us, assuming you found this book, because you are at least slightly interested in chess problems and Sherlock Holmes.
That being said, you have to be more of a chess fan than of a Holmes fan. Those little stories are fine, but the enjoyment comes from the chess mysteries. I found myself laughing about some of the solutions, feeling stupid to think there could not possibly be any solution to the problem at all. At some point, Smullyan even goes as far as to present a problem where he can proof there is a solution, even though he can not show it. Great stuff.
As this book can also be seen as a collection of chess problems, the stories will disappear slowly at some stage, but that's okay, because you don't have to read the whole book in one go. You can also just save some riddles for later. After all, there aren't that many of these riddles out there.

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 am not a chess player, but I found this set of problems in "chess logic" thoroughly entertaining. To understand (and possibly to solve) these requires only an understanding of the rules of chess. "Sherlock Holmes" provides very thorough solutions and explanations for the early problems within the text. Later problems are merely stated with solutions provided at the end of the book. The problems range from relatively easy to quite challenging. The presentation is entertaining throughout. I hope that the publisher intends to keep this book in print -- and to consider re-publication of the companion volume on "Chess Mysteries of the Arabian Knights" (which I found equally enjoyable).
