The Sherlock Holmes Society of London reviews Sherlock Holmes: The Baker Street Case-Files

28 Jan

Sherlock Holmes: The Baker Street Case-Files by Mark Mower. MX Publishing, 2017. 182pp. (pbk) 

Mower’s name should be familiar as a regular contributor to the MX Anthologies of New Sherlock Holmes stories. This handsome book of seven adventures gathers together five of his tales from those volumes with two new stories. Beginning with a case from the pre-Watson years, these stories span Holmes’s career, ending with a mystery that takes place in the wake of the First World War. Mower has an engaging, readable style, carrying the reader along with convincing dialogue whilst combining a good eye for period detail with well-paced plotting. My favourite story has to be “The Manila Envelope”, which showcases Holmes’s methods in a virtuoso display of observation and deduction. Overall, an impressive collection.

Sherlock Holmes: The Baker Street Case Files is available from all good bookstores including The Strand Magazine, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository. Available on Kindle and Audio.
