Sherlockians Rejoice

Sherlock Holmes pastiches have become rife in the years since "The 7% Solution", and they, like the works of Doyle himself, vary widely. Now comes a new twist in an adventure featuring Dr. James Mortimer, the man who left his cane behind in "The Hound of the Baskervilles". It is one of the best, precisely because it does NOT feature the master himself. Set in a richly detailed Victorian London, it gets both the feel of the times and the feel of the genre precisely right while providing a stunning mystery/adventure. One's only question is why this "mystery" is being published before the author's "Aldgate Mystery" (due August) to which it purports, at least, to be the sequel? At any road, READ THIS! (Unless, of course, you don't like Sherlockiana, in which case, why are you even here? -at this site, not on earth)
