Product description

About the Author

Liz Hedgecock grew up in London, England, did an English degree, and then took forever to start writing. After several years working in the National Health Service, a corporate writing course rekindled the flame, and various short stories followed. Some even won prizes. Then the short stories began to grow longer... Liz now lives in Cheshire with her husband and two sons, and when she’s not writing or child-wrangling you can usually find her reading, running, or cooing over stuff in museums and art galleries. Further info can be found at http://lizhedgecock.wordpress.com. For bite-sized pieces, follow Liz on Twitter at @lizhedgecock.

I couldn't put this down once I started reading it! Great well rounded characters in a by-gone period that came alive as I read; I felt like I was really there! Brilliant story line that kept me hooked right to the end! Buy it!!

This book was great fun to read - the dialogue and characters were all believable and in sync with original Sherlock stories. There is the extra added bonus on this one though, of having a spy in the bad guy's camp so we see some of what is going on there as well. Even though it wasn't as full of chuckles as the other Sherlock Holmes book by this author, it was very enjoyable, full of clever writing and plots, with mysteries to be solved all the way to the end.

This is what you might expect if Arthur Conan Doyle had collaborated with HG Wells to write a Sherlock Holmes story.

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.
