Beguiling and convincing entertainment, an audacious novelty that should set members of the Baker Street Irregulars and even less fanatical collectors of Holmes to dancing.
I hope Nicholas Meyer never stops writing Sherlock Holmes pastiches because he does it so much better than anyone else.

Instead what you get is a very engaging story that is very much in the style of Doyle's original writings. This is hard to achieve (and has eluded many other pastiche writers) but Meyer achieves it admirably.
The only reason I have not given five stars is that I feel that Meyer depicts Holmes as slightly too emotional at times. However it is a minor criticism.
The second in Nicholas Meyer's series. More enjoyable than 'The Seven Per-Cent Solution' I think, Meyer takes things a bit more seriously this time. You might kick yourself when you discover the solution to the mystery, it seems obvious when you know, however it does provide the book with a suitably grim end which doesn't trivialise what has taken place. Characterisation is decent and all in all, this was a decent, if very short, read.
