Format: Kindle Edition
Sherlock Holmes meets Winston Churchill? Well, that's the idea behind this intriguing and very funny book set in Victorian London, the first in a series. Young Winston, at twelve, is thought by his distant parents to be dim-witted and dull, perhaps as a result of a hereditary disease. The family doctor suggests they consult Doctor Watson.

Winston invades 221B baker Street, and joins Sherlock and Watson in the investigation of cases of poisoning, street-walking, kidnapping and murder. The plots are intertwined, all told in classic fashion through Watson's eyes.

The author has clearly steeped himself in the period. The language, settings and characters are authentically late-Victorian. The climactic chase through London is as exciting as anything I have read in the genre. This book is the solution to this year's Christmas present crisis.

The author has clearly steeped himself in the period. The language, settings and characters are authentically late-Victorian. The climactic chase through London is as exciting as anything I have read in the genre. This book is the solution to this year's Christmas present crisis.

One element makes the book refreshingly different from other books in the genre - perhaps closer to Conan-Doyle in places - is the relationship between Holmes and Watson. They are friends, and like most very close friends, they bicker occasionally. Remember that in 1887, they'd been together in the Baker Street rooms for seven or so years.

I could wish that the author had slacked the rather hectic pace in some sections of the book. The reader is hurried from scenes that he might want to savor more. I hope that the following books in the series allow Watson more time for reflection.

The dialogue and settings are just right. London is a major character, with its dingy streets, dark and dangerous courts and homely pubs. And Buffalo Bill and his cowboy and Indian troupe are in at the final charge. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
I can tell you straight away the very best thing about this book: there are two more to come in this series! An inspired notion to introduce a young Winston Churchill into the lives of Holmes and Watson and fortunately the inspired writing lives up to that inspired notion. Everything about this book, whether it be plot, casting, characters or dialogue is spot on. Mr Hogan, quite simply, does not put a foot wrong with volume, roll on the next two!!
