"An excellent collection of short stories and essays." --New York Review of Books
"The Perils of Sherlock Holmes is an entertaining and diverting read. If you liked the Conan Doyle adventures, there's plenty here to keep you turning the pages and try to make your own deductive reasoning." --BookPleasures.com
"Estleman's style as Watson is better than many, and I especially liked 'The Devil and Sherlock Holmes' and 'The Riddle of the Golden Monkeys.' His fine introductory essay discusses his interest in Holmes and writing Sherlock Holmes vs. Dracula - which I read and recall liking many years ago." --BestofSherlock.com
"Readers who appreciate the classic portrayal of the detective...will likely enjoy The Perils of Sherlock Holmes. The limited duration of the stories is appreciated and allows readers flexibility. However, the brevity does not diminish the storytelling. Readers are transported back to another place and time during the series of short stories that pay homage to the legend that is Sherlock Holmes." --Pop Culture Guy Blog
