Mycroft Holmes and The Adventure of the Silver Birches (The Mycroft Holmes series Book 1) Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

Dickinson's characterization is excellent as his characters are rounded out and not simply a stereoytpe in most cases. His characterization of Mycroft Holmes is very faithful to Doyle's. Our old friend Inspector Lestrade is nicely developed, as is his dogged, basic police work. Mycroft is more fully developed than he was by Doyle, which is to be expected; Mycroft's subtler reasoning and problem solving skills are nicely contrasted with Lestrade as well as Sherlock himself. If you are are fan of Sherlock Holmes - or even of Mycroft or the style of Doyle - this is a fun quick read.
