Review of The Detective the Woman and the Winking Tree from The Sherlock Holmes Society of London

16 May

“The second novel about Holmes and Irene Adler by Amy ThomasThe Detective, the Woman and the Winking Tree (MX; £9.99), uses the same narrative technique as the first,The Detective and the Woman: Miss Adler’s chapters are told in the first person, and Holmes’s in the third person. It works well, not least because the woman emerges as a strong, intelligent and entirely credible character, whom Holmes rightly comes to admire. The subject of this new joint investigation is the apparently impossible disappearance of a Mr James Phillimore – who, as we remember from Dr Watson’s guarded remark, ‘stepping back into his own house to get his umbrella, was never more seen in this world’. Amy Thomas is a Baker Street Babe – and that is a recommendation.”

The Detective the Woman and the Winking Tree is available from all good book stores including in the USA AmazonBarnes and Noble, in the UK AmazonWaterstones,  and for everywhere else Book Depository who offer free worldwide delivery. In ebook format there is Kindle,  iPadKobo and Nook.
