This book is obviously total gibberish. I did not read it myself but my grandchildren said they found it very entertaining.

4.0 out of 5 stars Elementary?, 17 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a new collection of Holmesian stories written by a series of authors. Each has adopted the watsonian style but the approach is very different. Not surprisingly, the quality of the writing is quite varaiable and some stories evoke the atmosphere of the genre much better than others. Overall the collection is an entertaining read and recommended to followers of Sherlockiana.

2.0 out of 5 stars Old American art, 8 July 2012

The text is as expected for a book that deals with 19th century minor artists. However the photocopy format is in black and white so the illustrations which are crucial for appreciating the text, are worthless. Disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Morse convolutions., 18 April 2012

Good quality dexterism. A typically convoluted Morse plot with numerous false leads. Confirms long-standing impressions of the totally sociopathic nature of Oxford academia!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pseudo-Sherlock, 18 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A not altogether convincing exercise is Holmes quasi-plagiarism. Mixes Sherlockian investigation with black magic. Does not quite come off.Not highly recommended!

For those totally ignorant of the subject this handy little book will provide a quick background on well known ballets. Useful just before the performance.

This review is from: Lethal Investments (Paperback)
This is a Mankell-Larsson look-alike but without the writing skill.Both characterisation and plot are somewhat weak.OK for passing the time if there is nothing better on the shelf!
