TOP 100 REVIEWERon 28 August 2014
The private detective agency of Sherman Holmes and John Garden is thriving. A memorial to their namesakes in Quaker street leads to Andrea Frazer's trademark adventure. Introducing her characters lucidly, the incorporation of Sherlock Holmes's legacy causes riotous rifts in the association dedicated to the fictional detective, complicated by Garden being a transvestite. Questions of sexual orientation are rife amongst a bunch of bigots.

The inevitable murder adds fuel to the amateur sleuths and their temperamental discord. Andrea Frazer injects her typical style of comedy into the quandary amongst the cognoscenti. The results are full of humour and irony. 'Me? Go to a fish and chip shop', asks Holmes , typical of the parody. An enjoyable short story with the Andrea Frazer stamp strictly 'tongue in cheek'.

Sorry Ms Fraser I normally love your books. This one had humour in it, but the plot wasn't a page turner for me. My partner enjoyed this book because he loves the very englishness that Ms Fraser has to share with the world.

As expected from this wonderful Author, Andrea Frazer, this is a great read and I thoroughly recommend it. The characters are "real" and the plot has lots of twists and turns, keeps one guessing right until the end. As always, am on to the next book by this Author.

Coudn't finish it. Not the same type of story as the Falconer tales by the same author. I devoured them and have read them all SO FAR. Want more!!??

There is a lot of repetition about the characters if you have already read others in this series but an interesting plot.
