Where the game falls short is as a puzzle. The player is always told how to proceed, and there were no proper challenges. Ultimately, the player ends up hitching a ride with Sherlock, rather than playing him.
I'd really love to see the same game mechanism used for further Sherlock games, offering a significantly higher difficulty.

I'm the author, and I completely agree with you!
You may prefer a different story I made with the same mechanics, Color the Truth: https://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=a746d3agtfizlx0x
But there's an even better game by other authors from IFComp 2018 called Erstwhile that does really tricky puzzles involving combining clues: https://ifdb.tads.org/viewgame?id=9xgxim719fp1eanq
