An Interesting story,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sherlock Holmes and The Case of The Edinburgh Haunting (Kindle Edition)
I have enjoyed this book. It is evocative of an other age and moves at a decent pace. However, I could never agree with reviewer who wrote that it is 'extremely well written'. There are many solecisms, much awkward sentence construction, several instance of poor grammar, usually involving the employment of the personal pronoun. There is also an abandonment of the first person narrative with which the story begins, even when Watson is at the scene of the action. Despite all this criticism, it is testimony to the author's story telling ability that I found that I just had to read on. In the end, I would qualify my opening remark by inserting the word .

The errors mentioned may be due to the fact that authors of this particular publishing house have to do their own proof-reading. It says much for the writer's story-telling talents that one can still find the book a good read.
