5.0 out of 5 stars The Fun's Afoot, February 20, 2011
This review is from: The Sherlockian (Hardcover)
My daughter gave me this book for Christmas, and I just read it in a single 36-hour period. Boy, she had me pegged. This is a clever historical thriller, and the device of moving back and forth chapter by chapter between two mysteries---one Conan Doyle was working on and one about Conan Doyle being worked on today---was an excellent device that kept the pace and suspense up and provided for double the number of twists and revelations. The tales are wonderfully woven together. You do not need to be a Sherlock Holmes expert to enjoy this one, and it is great, light fun. I laughed out loud several times. A wonderful debut.
