About the Author
Jim Wearne is a musician, teacher and several other things. His background includes jobs as diverse as stagehand, bag boy and computer whiz. His lifelong love of the Sherlock Holmes stories, along with a stint as a prop man on a touring production of My Fair Lady, combined to produce the central idea for his novel "The Adventure of the Old Campaigners." He has traveled extensively in the USA and abroad, especially in Britain. All of his many experiences come together in his writing, which may include some hidden meanings, just for those clever enough to catch on. Jim's published writings include both fiction and non-fiction as well as poetry. He has lost count of the number of music CDs he has released. He hopes very much that readers will enjoy reading his stories as much as he enjoys writing them!

The narration thru Watson's voice is done cleanly and effectively, with great passion and attention to the ethos of the existing narratives. Wearne creates a literary adventure filled with wit, grace and intrigue.
A must read for "Fair Lady" and Doyle fans alike.
Early on in the reading of this book I had to give some credit to the writer for coming up with a clever idea. It would not have been too great a stretch of the imagination that Holmes, had he existed, would have crossed paths with Professor Higgins. The plot elements were convincing and the writer maintained a narrative that was somewhat consistent. If I were to give a harsh criticism it would be that the book was about 5 pages too long. Some of the activities could have been deleted without harm and some descriptions tended to meander aimlessly.
With some tightening this could have easily merited 4 if not 5 stars.
