4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating alternatives, 3 Feb 2011

This review is from: Rivals of Sherlock Holmes (Paperback)
This book provides a fascinating alternative to the victorian/edwardian crime fiction scene.With an introduction to each of the authors and crime solvers I found this book both entertaining and mystical.The stories chosen seem to be mostly different from those on the DVDs of the same ilk, which is a bonus.

4.0 out of 5 stars An escape to an innocent past., 13 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very much as one would expect - charmingly entertaining in an old-fashioned, innocent way. For the lovers of Sherlock Holmes it is certainly worth reading.

Just proves how good Conan Doyle was, but there were more on his heels than I knew - great fun.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great introduction, 23 Mar 2013

Fans of the great Sherlock Holmes may not realise that there was a huge amount of detective fiction published at the same time as the stories were written. This book is a good introduction to some (though by no means all) of the contemporaries of Conan Doyle who were also trying their hand at the genre, and should whet the appetite of Holmes fans who want to explore further. If you like classic crime with a period flavour, this book is for you.
