This is a nicely-plotted, intricate story. It has the kind of storyline that looks like one thing when it starts out but by the end turns out to be so much more than that.
I had only one niggle with it and that is that the lead female character (hereafter referred to as the Original Character, or OC) seems to instantly understand Holmes better than Watson and is apparently also responsible for Holmes's interest in bees (at least, Holmes never had any interest in bees before, according to this Watson). This walks the MarySue tightrope and did detract a bit from the tale for me. However, the author refrained from having Holmes go off into the sunset with the OC, and the story stayed on point.
The relationship between Holmes and Watson remains true to canon. The language is close to the original. The plot is excellent. There's not much more that one can ask from a pastiche!
Let's get the word out about The Singular Case of the Duplicate Holmes!
For those who are die-hard Holmesians, though, it might be worth a read.
