From Publishers' Weekly:

Eminent attorney and Sherlockian Klinger completes the daunting mission he began with 2004's two volumes examining the original 56 short stories to feature the great detective with this robust third book containing the four Holmes novels. All the gifts that netted Klinger an Edgar Award for best critical/biographical work are again in evidence: clear definitions of obscure terms, pithy discussions of some of the issues that have puzzled and delighted Holmes fans for generations (where exactly was Watson wounded?) and lucid essays (which legend inspired The Hound of the Baskervilles?). Klinger manages the difficult feat of appealing both to those new to the world of Sherlockian scholarship and to those who can quote the stories like gospel. Ample use of illustrations, some from the novels' original appearances, adds to the enjoyment. A must-have for any serious mystery fan, this edition will stand as the benchmark for generations to come. Agent, Donald Maass. Author tour. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of the Four, The Hound of the Baskerilles, and The Valley of Fear, all together in one slipcased package with 1000 new notes, 350 illustrations, and more. Should you buy? It's elementary, my dear librarian. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
