Review of Seventeen Minutes to Baker Street

“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!“

Review of Sherlock Holmes and the Baron of Brede Place

“This is volume two in this series paring Holmes with various American authors… The character of the twisted blackmailer, already known to be dark and pitiless, is shown to be even more of a devil than any reader already knows! The book is packed with action and drama! The characters are well developed and the pacing is superb!… I give the book five stars!”

Review of The Outrage at the Diogenes Club: Sherlock Holmes and the American Literati, Book 4

Victor’s ingenious weaving of fact with fiction, and the inclusion of highly relevant Jack London quotes at the beginning of each chapter, make this a very interesting read. He takes obvious delight in dropping names while uncovering the arcane in the Holmes sagas and “editing” Watson’s mysteries to suit his device of uniting American literati with the great detective. All who relish Sherlockiana should enjoy this series.
