"In this promising debut...Thoreau is ...erudite, eccentric, waxing philosophical
about his love of nature, and a natural detective." - Publisher's Weekly
Thisis a well-constructed murder mystery set in 1840s New England. Thoreau isresiding at Walden Pond, and his character is nicely presented: dignified,thoughtful, humorous, and indeed, ever as observant and deductive as Sherlock Holmeshimself... Oak writes very well, thecharacters are solid and interesting, and the victims and suspects arewell-matched and not easy to determine...There is a good sense of the times andthe life of simple but smart people living in rural Massachusetts... It wasreally quite a page-turner, and I stayed up pretty late one night to finish itoff!
TheHistorical Novels Review
B.B. Oak creates a scenario sobelievable, many will agree that Henry David Thoreau could have rivaled thegreatest detectives... had he chosen that pursuit.
Mystery fans will have their powers of observation tested against that ofThoreau, the American version of Sherlock Holmes. And, of course, if Thoreau is Holmes, thenstar-crossed lovers and narrators Dr. Adam Walker and his cousin, Julia Bell, areWatson.
"Thoreau at Devil's Perch" has something for everyone. Most of all, it contains a very enjoyable,well-written story utilizing uncommon characters that will create fans forbooks to come. D. A. Kentner, Gateway Publications
