Review of The Case of the Hampstead Ponies

10 Jul

This is the second volume in a series that began with The Musical Murders. As I said in that review, the secret of how these stories were found is a solid one. They were written by Doctor Watson, submitted to the Strand and rejected. Because of their content, they were hidden away in Baker Street, discovered only when it was remodeled.

In these stories, Holmes and Watson are in their early seventies and have moved back to 221B. Mrs. Hudson’s niece Lily, (soon to be newly married to Jasper Lestrade, son of Holmes’ old sparring partner and also a policeman) is their housekeeper and landlord. Holmes has again fallen into the grip of cocaine and sometimes titters on the edge.

I give the book five stars!
