There is no crime here. This story revolves round Jack (Jacynth) asking Sherlock to track down her family before she gets married. Her fiancé is expected to have one side of the church full while her side will be almost empty. However, most of the work is done by herself as she uncovers a twin sister she never knew she had and the mysterious but charming Uncle M. Sherlock and Watson flit in and out.
My only reservation - as it was with one or two other Holmes stories by Liz Hedgecock - is that she introduces an element of romance into the proceedings. I'm not sure why it's a reservation; it just is. Must be a bloke thing. I tend to find it gets in the way a bit and is superfluous to the tale. The nuances, physical and emotional, between Jack and her fiancé don't really add anything to the story. I suppose they are there to put some meat on the bones of the characters. Fair enough. The bottom line is, I enjoyed it. As I do all of her Sherlock stories.
Be interesting to have a straightforward Holmes and Watson yarn though, Bet it'd be really good.
Arthur Conan Doyle expressed his detachment from the character of Holmes by declaring writers were free to do what they wanted with him. But the one thing I won't accept from a writer is poor characterisation. Ms Hedgecock captures the so-familiar characters perfectly and, in my view, is therefore entitled to do whatever she wants with them.
Ultimately, this is a well written, engaging adventure that satisfied my need for a Holmes fix.
Can't wait to read more!
