After reading The 6 Messiah's I came looking for more from Mark Frost, and was stunned to see less than 5 star ratings. The author combines a fantastic blend of thriller, mystery and horror with a taste of humor. If your looking for flat horror & gore this is probably not your style. The 6 Messiah's pulls you into a story line that grows and twist with each turn of the page. I loved every minute of it and am looking for more!

Not a bad book, but unfortunately most of the other characters are more interesting and play a more important role than the two main characters (A.C. Doyle and Jack "Sherlock Holmes" Sparks). If you liked the hints at real and fictional characters from "The list of 7", this book comes a little short in this respect, too.

***This review may contain spoilers***

The book is a sequel to the author's "List of Seven", which is one of my favorite books.

This one stays close to the Sherlock Holmes stories, but it is way inferior to the first book.

Jack is alive, Alexandet turns good-ish and the heroes have moved to the USA.

I found the character twists weak and not related to how the main characters were introduced in the first book and the story ill-fitted to the first, great, scenario.

It felt like the editors made the writer write another book, just for publicity reasons.

Mildly entertaining, but I would not recommend it.

Ten years after the events of 'The List Of Seven' Conan Doyle is enjoying the success of his Sherlock Holmes stories. His trip to America finds him up to his neck with faces from his past, and another mystery involving the theft of religious books.

I read the 'The List Of Seven' some years ago and remember enjoying it, if not recalling exactly how things turned out. There's a lot of good here, interesting characters. There are perhaps too many, vying for attention.

The relationship between the actress and the rabbi was effective and they perhaps would have made for more interesting leads than the rather ineffectual Conan Doyle.
Unfortunately the author doesn't give anyone anything to do - apart from all heading towards the Arizona desert. There are no surprises, some action, but for all the travelling, there's not a sense of things coming to a climax, just a sense of an opportunity missed. There's also an irritating switch between characters point of view in the same passages, something the editor should have picked up on.

A disappointment, because it could have been great but perhaps the author didn't know what to do with what he had.
