This compilation comprising a Baker s Street Dozen of his advent. This is a superb collection of stories that do justice to the canon and to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle There are too many adventures here to review them all but one or two stand out even higher than the rest The Mysterious Death Of The Kennington Verger and The Mystery Of The Locked Study could both have come from the pen of the great writer himself They both have Holmes at his deductive best while having the reader scratching his or her head at how certain deaths occurred Safe to say both are ingeniously devisedThere are literally dozens and dozens of Holmes and Watson stories out there and this ranks with the best Highly recommended for anyone who has found that the uality of Holmes adventures can be a bit hit and miss This is most definitely a bulls eye from beginning to end

Ures re creates the gas lit fog enshrouded world of Victorian Lo. An enjoyable series of stories in the proper style some are perhaps a little emotionally written than the original but they are very good reading I would recommend these stories to Holmesian fans

    The author has captured the spirit of Holmes in this book., while not trying to write in a Conan Doyle style.This adds to the book An enjoyable read , gripping stories and well written.
