More About the Author

Bio

Phil van Wulven was born in Africa, in a family who changed houses and schools, as well as countries, quite often. Landlords, Headmasters, and governments prefer you to leave places as you found them, he discovered. He has lived in Canada for quite a while now, where he is busy growing roots. He hates rejection almost as much as dejection.
He likes trees, birds, sunsets, and all that, and is getting used to the idea that seeing a sunrise doesn't mean he is on the way to work.
He likes to read, write, drink beer, and fix stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars short book for price 18 July 2014
By Smask
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First things first, well written, good spelling and Watson is recognisable. However it is very short, it took me less than twenty minutes to read. There is little for Holmes to deduce and the story requires a suspension of disbelief which is phenomenal, presenting instant family, abandoning one line of the story, to introduce another and then stopping abruptly. But this does explain some things written In the author's other books. It leaves unanswered several questions, what about Frederick and his line of work, how does Mary take it all, why mention the spider in the blurb when it plays little to no part.
