5.0 out of 5 stars A superlative collection. 26 July 2013
Format:Paperback
A collection of Holmes stories. Yes, another collection and there are oh so many out there!! Is this one worth buying? A resounding yes!!! Extremely well written. No false notes here, just Holmes and Watson as we always imagined them to be. The dialogue and plots are convincing and are a pleasure to immerse oneself in. The plots and locations may be varied, but the excitement level is consistently high. As pastiches go, this is right up there with the best of them. And I really do mean the best. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A more human Holmes and a more sensible Watson 26 July 2013
Format:Paperback
This is the first collection of Sherlockian tales from this author. It includes eight novellas and two short stories as well as an explanation of the source of the stories.

"The Adventure of the Least Winning Woman," is not to be confused with "...the most winning woman..." cited in The Sign of Four. It describes an interesting case of blackmail and appropriation of a business for criminal purposes. In "The Adventure of the Treacherous Tea," Holmes is engaged by a man arrested for murder who escaped from the police simply to flee to Holmes to plead with him to look into his arrest. "The Singular Affair at Sissinghurst Castle" brings Holmes and Watson face-to-face with another local legend of historic evil. This one seems to have been used by a sharp business practitioner.

"The Adventure of the Second Chance" is a short story that describes Holmes' dealings with the family of a man in Professor Moriarty's employ. It begins during "Silver Blaze" and concludes in 1901 with an execution. "The Affair of the Brother's Request" is another tale that covers decades in time. It cites a separate tale of Holmes' adventures in the post-Civil-War Southern USA and concludes with a trip to the area by Holmes and Watson after WW-I. "The Adventure of the Madman's Ceremony" occurs during the same trip by Holmes and Watson after WW-I and involves some chance-met acquaintances. "The Haunting of Sutton House" tells two tales. One is yet another use of legends for profit that Holmes wrecks and the other is a tale of family wrangling that arises from insanity.

"The Adventure of the Missing Missing Link" tells of Holmes and Watson's involvement in the Piltdown discovery. It also tells of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's involvement and of some of the principals as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Conan Doyle reborn ? 1 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
David Marcum has achieved the ultimate Sherlock Holmes pastiche, David is indeed the undisputed master of the modern Sherlock Holmes story, to read these stories it is as if Conan Doyle himself has written them.

No doubt about it David Marcum is THE best Sherlockian author of today.

If like me a purist and like Sherlock Holmes stories as Conan Doyle intended them this then this book is an absolute must, I have already pre ordered the next collection of stories but we have to wait until October............hopefully more will follow

1.0 out of 5 stars Holmes was not an American! 8 Jan 2014
By Neill
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In the introduction the author states he has used American spellings of English words, OK, that's his perogative and they don't detract from the tale. However in the very first story Holmes says "......gotton....", really!!

If you like Holmes, don't waste your money.
