Suspense but logical in the spirit of a Sherlock Holmes adventure. A bounty of new "words" to look up. A historical event revisited.

8 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Brian Hulett VINE VOICE on March 3, 2005
Format: Hardcover
Granted, the author has done a lot of research into the JFK assassination and has clearly developed his own conspiracy theory. But tricking anyone into reading it by inserting an aged Sherlock Holmes as the investigator of the events, well, that's a miserable thing to do. It'd be acceptable if the writer had some minor grasp of Holmes, and the style in which he deserves to be presented, but his portrayal of Holmes and Watson here is as accurate as the cartoon Three Stooges were to the real thing. In short, one of the worst books I've ever read.

5 of 9 people found the following review helpful By A fan of Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson on April 29, 2011
Format: Hardcover
I was very fortunite to run across this book in the library rather than purchasing it. I was able to dredge through the first hundered pages with no hope of an actual plot line in sight. Granted there was quite a lot of detail concerning the report of the Warren Commision and if that is of particular intrest to you than by all means pick up the book. However, if you are expecting a story of Sherlock Holme's exploits and detective skills you are in for a big disapointment. The way that the story is written shows a very lacking knowledge of the characters of Mr. Holmes and Dr. Watson. It seems as though the author placed the characters in the story just to grab readers attention and have them by the book.

Format: Hardcover
This book presents a scholarly analysis of the events surrounding the JFK assassination, in a readable format--while faithfully capturing the essence of interplay between Holmes and Watson as they might bring their analytical prowess to bear on this historical puzzle. After seeing the movie JFK, I had the distinct impression that someone within the Oliver Stone company had been influenced by this book. This is an ideal book to take to the beach or cottage on a short vacation.

1 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Yeratel on November 11, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Laughably ridiculous conspiracy theorizing, using an elderly Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, of all things, as a hook to get people to read it. They are not only elderly, they have apparently become Christian fundamentalists in their dotage, which doesn't help the narrative at all. I paid a quarter for a copy of this book at the Goodwill store, attracted by the Holmes name on the cover. I feel I overpaid, but I've held on to it as a curiosity among various other Sherlock Holmes pastiches in my library. It is high on my list of "Worst Novels Ever Actually Published."
