4.0 out of 5 stars Don't read the review below!, 21 Jun 2010
This review is from: The Last Sherlock Holmes Story (Paperback)
I'm not one to usually write reviews on here. I will say this, for a big Sherlock Holmes fan, this is a must read and is very well written. My main purpose however is not to recommend the book but to say please don't read the review underneath. I made the mistake of buying the book and seeing what the reviews said before reading it. I'm sorry to say that the first review on the page gave away a huge plot spoiler and did annoy me. I enjoyed the book nevertheless, but I couldn't help but wonder how much better it would have been if I didn't know what was going to happen anyway. It's all very well to recommend a book and to talk around plot points, but I don't agree with giving those plot points away. I'm sure it was meant with the best of intentions, but it did make a potentially great read into just a good one.

Do give this book a chance, it's worth every penny.
