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!
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?
