Unlike the author's previous venture into Holmesian territory (The Secret Notebook of Sherlock Holmes), which was whimsical and funny, this is played out with far more reverence for the established characters, and is as straight-faced as it can be, considering the presence of a time-travelling burglar!
The characterisation of Holmes and Watson is spot on, and the supporting cast is filled out nicely, with all the main players being complete and three-dimensional.
I read this with mental pictures of Jeremy Brett and Edward Hardwicke as Holmes and Watson respectively, and there was nothing in the actions and dialogue that didn't fit. It's testament to the author's ability that she can reproduce such iconic characters that faithfully.
Incidentally, I had been wondering about the title. When I discovered what a jar of Thursday actually was, it all made perfect sense... and that's all I'm saying on the matter.
I would absolutely recommend this to anyone with even the remotest interest in Holmes, and look forward to further entries in the series.
