As a long time fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's unequalled fictional creation, Sherlock Holmes, I found Frank Thomas' (One of televisions first space heroes; Tom Corbett) "SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE TREASURE TRAIN" to be a real treat.

I've read, and re-read all of Doyle's original work more times than I could hope to count. There's just something about the time period, the feel and the characters of Doyle's world that feels somehow right and comfortable to me. There's a rhythm to a Sherlock Holmes story and Thomas captured that rhythm brilliantly.

Based upon how much I enjoyed "SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE TREASURE TRAIN" I immediately sought out similar, additional books and managed to track down a copy of "SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE GOLDEN BIRD", also by Thomas. I hope to read them all. They'll be a fit addition to my Holmes collection.

If you can find it read it. There are used copies avaiable through Amazon's sellers.

It is not known by many film fans, especially those of tender years, that former child star Frankie Thomas was also a writer. He wrote for television and his most visible work seems to be the nine mysteries featuring Sherlock Holmes that he wrote mostly, I believe in the 70s. Bright and clever, he was noted for his tight plotting and evocation of time and place in his stories. And who can ever have too many entertaining mysteries featuring everyone's favorite sleuth, the great Mr. Holmes of 221B Baker Street?

If someone asks for some authors of Holmes/Watson pastiches I would recommend, Frank Thomas has a prominent place. I have most of his works except for those on Holmes and Bridge because I cannot play the game. His works I classify in the realm of 'Big Picture' outings. By that, I mean much of the action isn't limited to simply Holmes or Holmes and Watson but include many assistants. These include the Irregulars, the young boys (and sometimes girls) who serve as his eyes, ears and messengers to adults, many of whom have been on the wrong side of the law.
Some of them are pretty picturesque.

One thing you can count on with a Frank Thomas novel is plenty of action, suspense and surprises. Activities are not limited to London or even England. The sleuth and his faithful companion(s) will end up in many locales many quite exotic. Although the narratives may sag in places, overall you are in for a good read. Other reviewers, who definitely are showing their ages by being familiar with Tom Corbett, Space Cadet, brought back memories of Saturday nights on Los Angeles TV. . Ah, the days of Dick Lane, Freddie Blassie, Dick the Bruiser, Ricky Starr (if this one rings a bell, you are OLD) Roller Derby and Thursday Night Wrestling.

Thomas is neither the best or the worst of the hundreds who use Conan Doyle's great creation to make a buck. The style is somewhat truer to Doyle than most, but has a lack of depth.

That sain, the three books by Thomas are worth one read. Unfortunately they cannot be found in most large libraries.
