Product Description

From the Supernatural Case Files of Sherlock Holmes

London's most beloved detective encounters his most deadly foe, and the results will be unlike any Sherlock Holmes adventure before it!

Some Reviews for 'The Adventure of the Solitary Grave':

"This blending of two major Victorian characters is written in a style so seamless you can almost believe it was found in the attic of one of Doyle’s editors. Yes, it’s a little darker than I usually read, but I honestly couldn’t put it down. The nuances of Holmes, Watson, and yes, Count Vlad Dracula himself are layered and well-drawn. You’ll hold your breath, I promise. It’s quite simply the most believable Holmes/fantasy crossover I’ve ever read." - from STEAMED! @ http://ageofsteam.wordpress.com

"What's most remarkable about this story is the degree of authenticity Klaver gives it-- it reads just like a story by Doyle (or Watson, if you prefer!). The attention to Victorian detail is also noteworthy, and it's clear that the author knows his Holmes mythology. You may think you've seen all that can be done with teh sub-genre of "Holmes meets Dracula" tales, but The Case of the Solitary Grave is exciting and refreshingly unpredictable. As a bonus, we get a very touching look at the deep bond of friendship between Holmes and Watson." - Heath Lowrance

"I was very pleased with this short story. I am a big fan of the original Sherlock Holmes stories and of the novel Dracula. This short story was well written and was strikingly similar to the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of the original tales." - JVib

5.0 out of 5 stars Holmes fans will love this! 2 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
An excellent read! Christian Klaver's short story stays true to the originals in mood and style. The pacing was perfect and I enjoyed the unfolding of the plot. The meeting of Holmes and Dracula was handled very well and differently than you might expect. I thouroughly enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars shear sherlock 13 May 2012
By dazzled
Format:Kindle Edition
Being a Sherlock fanatic, I approached this story with great trepidation, fully prepared to be outraged.

Fortunately, I was pleasantly surprised. Not only does the author find a close match to Doyle's voice and style, but also creates an extremely original story, without straying too far from the spirit of Holmes and Dr. Watson.

It was a throughly enjoyable read, that blended the darkness of Dracula, and the brilliance of Holmes with a deft touch.

I only hope there are further adventures in our future.

Possibly not for the traditionalist Holmes fans , but I enjoyed the tale. Dracula and Sherlock , what is there not to like. Not up to Kim Newman standard , but an enjoyable read non the less, and for free on kindle .

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally authentic invoking nostalgia 20 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a dyed-in-the-wool Sherlock Holmes fan, I was very pleased with this story. It had a definite Conan Doyle feel about it, and tapped easily into the legendary Sherlock Holmes methods of deduction in this original story about Holmes' encounter with Dracula. It had a touch of the supernatural about it with dark undertones, but was so very well thought-out. These 'unusual' elements took the story to another level with the excellent flow of the story as a whole. For a make-believe tale, it made you believe all events were in fact true and plausible. It was a quick, entertaining read, for which I gladly give five-stars and my only tiny gripe would be that I'd have preferred it was part of an anthology of tales by this Conan Doyle imitator (that's a complement by the way). I will certainly be looking out for more of the same by Christian Klaver.

(Oh yes, as mentioned in other reviews, the editing needs work).
