"I read this just after David Ruffle's first book on Holmes, and it has a similar structure - a main novella, followed by a series of short stories. It's markedly different in some ways though, notably in the portrayal of Watson having improved somewhat and the plot of the title story being stronger. Ruffle's Holmes is still a delight to read, with the author capturing him especially well, while the faithful Lestrade is pleasingly close to his established character. Ruffle's Watson admits that it's 'more or less a chase' with little actual detective work to be done, but taken for what it...

"Sherlock himself is captured very, very well. His genius, his impatience, and his arrogance mix together in just the right quantities for this to feel like a 'canon' story". Those among you that are authors and publishers will know The Bookbag is the UK's leading independent book review site - and that they are thorough. There is a mix of excitement and trepidation when the email arrives to say a new book review is ready. Thankfully they give a glowing review of Sherlock Holmes and The Lyme Regis Horror 2nd Edition. When author David Ruffle brought the book to us,...

Described by The Sherlock Holmes Society of London as "An exciting and witty romp" Dan Andriacco's first novel No Police Like Holmes has been a big hit with Holmes fans around the world. It's not a pastiche though, it is a mystery featuring Holmes fans rather than the great detective himself. His first book was Baker Street Beat which is also the name of his blog, contained essays, a pastiche and some radio plays. It's fiction though that Dan really likes to write. Here, one of the main Sherlock Holmes reviewers in the USA, Philip K Jones (aka The Ill Dressed Vagabond) gives us...

"Overall, this is a rich and satisfying tale that provides us with a new insight into the most private recesses of the mind of Sherlock Holmes." Set in the Northern Isles A Case of Witchcraft has already caused some controversy written as it is by an expert on the occult. The Bookbag really liked the book and gave it a very strong 4 out of 5 stars. "Revill's work brings us the Holmes we love very quickly. Instantly recognisable with his usual ascerbic wit and attractive peculiarities, this novel draws in the reader rapidly, and sets up the storyline clearly....

"well written and thoroughly researched" Set in the Northern Isles A Case of Witchcraft has already caused some controversy written as it is by an expert on the occult. Here the Sherlock Holmes Society of London review this debut novel from Joe Revill. "A Case of Witchcraft by Joe Revill (£12.99/$19.95/€14.99) teams Holmes rather improbably with Aleister Crowley to investigate the disappearance of an eminent folklorist in what’s described as a ‘remote and rather backward northern isle’. The situation is strongly reminiscent of The Wicker Man, but, of course, Holmes is not Sergeant Howie. His attitude towards the so-called Old...
