Picked this up as a freebie for Kindle. Well worth a read. If not for the Holmes content and context, which is OK, but for the fact it is a fast moving and enjoyable detective story. There will be those who scoff, but for nothing and for a rainy weekend, I enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I enjoyed this one enormously 22 Dec. 2012
By AcerAcer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In this pastiche, Holmes is framed for a crime through forgery and impersonation. Instead of coming forward and clearing his name, he allows the situation to continue so that he and Watson can catch the real criminals.

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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Holmes at his best! 8 Jan. 2013
By Visakh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Being a hard-core Sherlock Holmes fan, the story line of this book was interesting enough for me to pick it up. And I was not disappointed! This is one of the best stories of the great detective that I have read (other than the ones by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself). I was impressed with The House of Silk (which is officially endorsed by Doyle's estate), but The Singular Case of the Duplicate Holmes was mind blowing. The writing is typical Doyle's style, and the story line is pretty much complicated. The characters are well developed, and we even get to see a slightly romantic side of Holmes (don't fret. It's just a hint of a romantic). The ending was too descriptive than required, and that makes me reduce one star from the rating. Overall, a fantastic read for a Sherlock fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended for all mystery readers 24 Sept. 2013

While the first reviewer exactly described the essence of this excellent book (complete with original illustrations by the author herself), I would like to encourage adolescent readers to enjoy this unique Holmes adventure!

Let's get the word out about The Singular Case of the Duplicate Holmes!

This was a good Sherlock Holmes story. Not a really good Doyle duplicate but better than many I have seen.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh 13 Feb. 2014
By Marilyn A. Bonomi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A rather silly pastiche, though reasonably enjoyable as a quick read.

For those who are die-hard Holmesians, though, it might be worth a read.
