Having read, and enjoyed, April Taylor’s other novels, I was eager to see how she would tackle this challenge. It’s no mean feat for an author to contribute a novel to such a well-established, ubiquitous and much-loved series as the Sherlock Holmes collection.
April Taylor, however, has managed to combine her own voice with the tradition founded by Conan Doyle without either obscuring her imaginative telling of the tale or treading on the toes of the original creator of this iconic character. She has captured all the players, including Dr Watson, Lestrade, the Irregulars, and Holmes himself, comprehensively. And her own imagined characters dwell well beside the recognised protagonists of the series.
It’s clear that the author has done extensive research for this novel. Period detail is authentic and the tale travels through the sort of attention to detail that holds the reader within the confines of the age. It’s a story full of clues, false starts, action, intrigue, danger and the wonderful plot convolutions so beloved of fans of the genre.
Crime isn’t my favourite reading subject, but I’ve always enjoyed the output of this writer. ‘Sherlock Holmes and the Oakwood Grange Affair’ easily confirmed my faith in this author’s work. I was gripped from start to finish and, but for domestic intrusions and the demands of my own writing, would have read from beginning to end in one sitting. This tale fits seamlessly into the Holmes tradition and combines nostalgia for the past stories with a new adventure for the brilliant duo. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

I've been a voracious reader since I was four years old - it's been a long-running family joke that after two children, mum couldn't be bothered with bedtime stories for the third, so left me to get on with it! However, my love of crime fiction, for some reason I'd never read the Sherlock Holmes stories until just before Christmas following a chat with a friend. My eyes were opened, and it wasn't long before I'd read everything written by Arthur Conan Doyle about Holmes/Watsons adventures. Just browsing amazon, looking for something else - and found this. Hmmm. Same characters, different author (albeit an author I've read, and enjoyed, before). Would it work? Could it?
Yes. It works. Ms Taylor has done such an impressive job, it wasn't long before I was fully immersed within the plot, not consciously aware that I wasn't reading work from the original canon. The characters were all well written and believable. Several times, I felt rather disappointed, as it appeared that all the loose ends were being tied up and that we were coming to the end of the book - but then a sudden twist appeared! And then another, and another.....
So go on, Treat yourself. At this price, how can you go wrong?

This is the first Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson pastiche by April Taylor. I enjoyed this book immensely as it was truly in the style of Conan Doyle. This is a nice long book with plenty of action and deductions. The pace and interest never stopped, and included all my favourite characters. This is an UN-put-downable story. I read it all in one go as I was so keen to find out, like Dr Watson exactly what might be behind the original murder. I do not go in for spoiling books that are this good by giving away any of the plot. But this is a book with plenty of twists and turns which hang together beautifully. Just as a small aside that will not spoil your enjoyment, when the company reckitts is mentioned, this company did, and I believe does still exist and the owner did in real life build affordable housing for his workers and their families, and they did make a product called reckitts blue which was used to keep whites really bright when washing shirts and sheets etc. I actually used reckitts blue in the 1970s- 1980s.
