It is those romanticised aspects that encouraged me to give four stars rather than five. Which, as I type, seems a bit mean because I enjoyed the book very much.
Basically, this is the background to Mrs Hudson and covers her life before Baker Street while at the same time interspersing that with her investigation into her policeman husband's disappearance some years before.
I won't give anything away but doubts are often placed on Lestrade and his integrity from the word go which puts an interesting slant on things. There are hints throughout of a police conspiracy.
All in all, an extremely enjoyable yarn. But I suppose being of the incorrect gender I appreciated the romantic elements less. Not that I don't have romance in me. I think! I just tend not to read it. Maybe more fool me. Highly recommended.
The Sherlock story from the viewpoint of Mrs Hudson was wonderful. To see her as a really strong woman, capable of handling herself well in many situations was intriguing. It found neat and clever ways to get around the restrictions women would usually face in Victorian Britain. I enjoyed the romantic elements to the story and felt they were approached in a way that "explained" why Conan Doyle hadn't included them. I'm not sure I'll read the original works the same way again. Although I do think this Sherlock felt a bit more like the more recent BBC adaptations.
A great read that I highly recommend.
That name is Liz Hedgecock.
In his new guise as "Liz Hedgecock", ACD has produced a number of new Holmes pieces worthy of his earlier work. In this one, he explores the origins of one of his unsung heroines, Mrs Hudson, and is told from her perspective.
A gripping tale of confusion, paranoia and a missing person, essential reading for the Holmes connoisseur.
