"Absolutely charming old world style. This book reaches back to the classical Sherlock Holmes story telling but without the unconnectable instances and characters that sometimes enter the pages of the old ones. I feel that this author has successfully taken the much loved story of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson and made it enjoyable for new generations. Being based on fact, this mystery will be a delight for historical fiction fans as well as those that enjoy historical and mystery genres. I don’t normally find this genre to my taste, but enjoyed this story a lot and appreciated the author’s...

"There is a lot of interest in Sherlock Holmes currently, with the BBC’s television series Sherlock and the American CBS series Elementary drawing a new generation of television viewers into the classic characters of Holmes and Dr. Watson. I have seen a few episodes of both shows and while as entertaining as most any contemporary crime drama, both are set in the current-day and their characters, for those of us who have read the canonical Sir Arthur Conan Doyle detective stories, do little but carry on the names of the Conan Doyle heroes—especially in the American series where so many aspects of the original premise...

American scientist Frederic Golden wrote the famous article on Einstein for Time Magazine’s ‘Man of the Century’ edition, at the end of 1999. Who better then to review the new Sherlock Holmes novel that covers the controversial subject of his daughter. “Thank you so much for sharing your latest Sherlock caper with me. A wonderful, page-flipping read. You’ve caught the Conan Doyle ambience and cadences beautifully. How did you ever manage to have Holmes and Watson riding in a tarantass -  a priceless touch? At times, I was sure I was back again in the old master of Baker Street’s...
