The Baker Street Society reviews The Investigations of Sherlock Holmes

10 May

“There are bad pastiche writers, there are good pastiche writers and there are brilliant pastiche writers such as David Stuart Davies, June Thomson, Hugh Ashton, Mike Hogan etc. Now, we must add to the list of brilliant pastiche writers the name of John Heywood for this collection of stories is straight out of ‘1895, hansoms and gas-lit streets’. There is no filler here, each story is a gem and the author’s control of his characters and their dialogue is well nigh indistinguishable from the work of ACD. Yes, I know that kind of thing pops up in many reviews, but trust us, this is probably the finest Holmes short story collection to appear in many years, perhaps seventy-six years. Yes they are that good.”

The Investigations of Sherlock Holmes is available from all good bookstores including  Amazon USAAmazon UKWaterstones UK, and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository .
