Book Description

10 Dec 2012
Spring 1887. Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson find a cuckoo in their comfortable nest at 221B Baker Street when, after a chance encounter in Hyde Park, twelve-year-old Winston Spencer-Churchill is dumped on them by his far from doting mother, Lady Randolph. Winston blossoms under the affectionate, if occasionally jealous care of Watson. His developing detective skills and connections in Society are combined with a capacity for creating mayhem. Add in pack of Indians from Buffalo Bill's Wild West show and a homicidal pork butcher with an axe and as Holmes says of this first in a series of adventures "I dare say these experiences have done him a power of good. He will be much better prepared for daily life at his public school".

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect Christmas present 7 Dec 2012
By Scout
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 4 Dec 2012
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!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant new Sherlock Holmes story 5 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Deadwood Stage is the first in a series of books by Mike Hogan that explore a fascinating premise: what if a young Winston Churchill had joined forces with the famous detective duo, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson? The book is a Sherlock Holmes pastiche, which is a small but thriving genre in which modern authors write new Holmes mysteries.

I must admit, when I heard of the idea my first reaction was that it would be too far-fetched. However, as soon as I started reading this fine book I realised that my fears were completely unfounded.

This is a Sherlock Holmes story in the very best sense, almost completely indistinguishable from the originals written by Arthur Conan Doyle. I was particularly impressed by Mike Hogan's sensitive and intelligent depiction of Holmes himself. The character leaps out of the page, and readers who are familiar with the famous long-running Granada TV series of Sherlock Holmes adaptation will instantly recognise the voice of Jeremy Brett. It's like bumping into an old friend. The characterisation here really is remarkable and I must stress once again that this is indistinguishable from an original Sherlock Holmes story--while at the same time allowing the author's own imagination and flare to shine through.

The character of Watson is also excellently portrayed and, if anything, in slightly more depth than we are used to. His role as a man of medicine is explored and there are fascinating insights about the conflicting theories of the day, ie. 'miasma' vs. germ theory.

I'm sure you are all keen to hear about Winston Churchill's role in the book! In 1887, he is twelve years old and far more intelligent than his parents believe (they worry that he is backward).
