Review of Seventeen Minutes to Baker Street

26 Mar

“This novel is a retelling of “The Problem of Thor Bridge.” The tale is expanded and has a slightly different slant than the original. J. Neil Gibson, The Gold King is accompanied to 221B by Samuel Clemens, AKA “Mark Twain.” In fact, Twain has recommended Holmes to his friend, and when the man bolts from Baker Street it is Clemens that brings him back…

This makes for a really strong story! That the ending changes don’t affect Holmes’ triumph at all and makes perfect sense with the evidence given! I doubt that even a Holmes purist could find much fault with the story. I am not saying that because Mark Twain is my favorite author—he is, by the way—but because this is truly an amazing story!

I give this book five stars!“
