Very much in the Holmesian tradition. If you like revisionist takes on history (Jack the Ripper) and are always fascinated by Sherlock Holmes remakes then this is for you. It features a more likeable and intelligent Watson than King's, but Holmes is his "typical" self!

Suspence, Shock, Sorrow.... this book has it all! I may still be a bit too young for this book but it rocks!

This is a first novel, and it's spot on! Has the language, and the atmosphere of Conan Doyle, with a thriller of a plot! Excellent!
