Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Interview with Contributor Lee Child

Why do you think you were asked to contribute to this book?
Because over the years Les Klinger and Laurie King discovered I'm a closet--but hopelessly amateur--Sherlockian, I suppose.

Why did you want to do it?
Because of the other folks already committed--I was hoping some credibility would rub off on me.

How much research did you do for your story "The Bone-Headed League"? Did you read Sherlockian literature? Or just the original story "The Red-Headed League"?
I read the original story again, to refresh my memory for the names I needed to know ... and then I read a commentary by some guy called Klinger for background.

Did writing this story have any effect on your feelings about the Sherlock Holmes Canon?
It reminded me that old Conan Doyle got away with the kind of fudges and inexactitudes we'd be slaughtered for today.

Are you done with Sherlock Holmes? Or can we expect more of this sort in the future?
No writer in my genre will ever be done with Holmes. Just not possible. Whether or not I do more depends whether I get asked again.

Review

"Enough variety for the dabbler, together with enough reverence for the canon to appeal to the true Holmes addict." —Kirkus Reviews

"King (The Beekeeper’s Apprentice and 10 other Mary Russell novels) and Klinger (The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes) have not stuck to the usual suspects for this stellar anthology of 16 new short stories that pay homage to the great detective." —Publishers Weekly, starred review
