A Publishers Weekly Staff Pick
“A pacy and twisting story – made me forget I wasn’t reading a Sir Arthur original.”―The Sun
"In a world with more than its share of Sherlock Holmes pastiches, it is rare for one to soar above the rest, but Bonnie MacBird's Art in the Blood achieves this singular feat and deserves a tip of the deerstalker." –-Otto Penzler, editor, “The Big Book of Sherlock Holmes Stories"
“Dark, stylish, ingeniously plotted. Gripping, enthralling read. Holmes & Watson live!” –-Hugh Fraser
“A thoroughly entertaining Sherlock Holmes adventure worthy of Doyle himself. … vivid period detail, a superb, labyrinthine plot, snappy pacing and, most importantly, a deep respect for the classic characters.” –-Bryan Cogman, Producer/Writer, HBO's Game of Thrones
"Bonnie MacBird's ART IN THE BLOOD has the three key ingredients for a delicious pastiche: Meticulous research, plausibility, and grand fun!" –-Leslie S. Klinger, editor, “The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes”

In addition, the thoroughly researched annotations give a lot of very interesting information about the events around this time, the society and, of course, the art.
I found it to be interesting reading all the way through and would recommend it both to people who have read much of Sherlock Holmes and to those for whom it would be a great introduction to the master detective.
‘Art in the Blood’ is superbly written, with plots mysteriously interwoven, unfolding page by page yet leaving the reader with anticipation and curiosity until the end. It is filled with suspense, fast-paced, and it's one of those books that you just can’t put down.
From the first page Bonnie McBird sets the mood beautifully, a cold winter day in London as Holmes and Watson embark on their quest to uncover the mystery of a missing child, mysterious murders and a stolen statue. I was immediately hooked. The fun part was that I felt set back in time, traveling with Holmes and Watson on their adventurous journey, being part of their team (who wouldn't want to be Sherlock's assistant!)
Bonnie McBird has the ability to capture the reader with curiosity and humor through authentic period dialogue and meticulous description of the scenes, which makes this novel such a fun read! I can’t wait for Holmes and Watson to return once again in ‘Unquiet Spirits’.
This one does not fail to delight
From the preface which draws you in
To the characterization
To the explanation at the end
So very close to Dotle
