Unquiet Spirits is simply phenomenal. Everything about the book is outstanding - the clever Preface, MacBird’s portrayal of Holmes and Watson, the mystery and ghost story they must unravel, and the supporting characters, including Holmes’ brother Mycroft. The author captures the tone of Conan Doyle’s tales, and Holmes and Watson are crafted authentically. I missed her first book, Art in the Blood, and plan to track it down soon. Unquiet Spirits is well worth the read, and I highly recommend it to any mystery lover. Thanks to HarperCollins for my copy. All opinions are my own.
The two are at loose ends when a young matron tries to engage Holmes services. Feeling the case was too much of a domestic issue he refuses. Later when his brother Mycroft recruits him on behalf of the government he realizes there may be more to it as the cases seem to be connected.
Throughout I was happily engaged following their explorations and exploits. The tone was very like the originals and I felt I was there the whole time.
I definitely give this book a buy and look forward to grabbing a copy of the author’s first book “Art in the Blood “.
Thanks to the publishers for a free review copy.
