Sherlock's Smarter Older Brother
on 11 December 1997
Sherlock Holmes fans (a dedicated lot!) might like this novel simply because Sherlock isn't in it. I found the plot to be more espionage/action than mystery. It is obviously the first book in a series; it left loose ends and a villain at large, but was a fast, satisfying read. If you like the 'Sherlock Holmes' milieu, secret societies, the occult, good vs. evil and deeds of derring-do, you will like this book.
