In The Detective, The Woman and The Pirate’s Bounty, Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler retrace the steps of pirates as they uncover a conspiracy at the heart of Florida’s islands. Death threats and gangsters are not enough to stop the pair as they meet new friends and enemies while seeking pirate treasure and preserving law and order. “Thomas portrays this iconic character and his mannerisms brilliantly. The story was so good and is written in such a way that enables you to picture it happening; as if watching a film.  I’d most definitely like to read more from this author...

It provides one-paragraph biographies of 800 real-life Victorians and Edwardians who strolled down Oxford Street near Holmes and Watson or figured in the newspapers they read. That mention...

Kieran McMullen has, over the last three years, established himself as one of the current leading ‘traditional’ Sherlock Holmes authors. Three historical military focussed novels behind him, and a wonderful collaboration with another new master Dan Andriacco (The Amateur Executioner) have given him a large following. In ‘Sherlock Holmes and The Black Widower’ Holmes has to investigate a potential serial killer – one who has murdered three wives. Not so unusual – except the accused is a one Dr. John Watson. A gripping and sure to be controversial thriller, and arguably McMullen’s best so far. Sherlock Holmes and The Black Widower is available...

Boy, was I mistaken.Eddy brings you to Doyle’s world and explains the common misconceptions of certain key phrases, Sherlock, and of course, Watson (who is not an idiot).” This week’s new title is very special. ‘Sherlock Holmes and a Quantity of...

“Benedict Cumberbatch In Transition – An Unauthorised Biography. A Review. Can a simple title say it all? In this particular case, it can and it is a joy. Benedict’s career is indeed in transition at the present moment in time (when I’m writing we are just a few days ahead of the Star Trek Into Darkness Premiere in London) and, in less than four years,he has metamorphosed from a very talented BBC actor to a sought-after international star. If you expect a mere unauthorised biography here, you will be disappointed. As already thoroughly explained by Sherlockology and by the author herself in...

Of the thousands of images of Benedict Cumberbatch author Lynnette Porter has chosen this one for her performance biography of the actor which comes out in June. A leading designer has been chosen for the cover which the publisher’s say will be “very special and a unique concept”.  Benedict Cumberbatch, In Transition has been described by the author’s agent Uwe as ‘a labour of love’ with a quite incredible attention to detail. Porter has published several very heavily researched books to date, and this one runs to 350 pages. Certainly one for the more serious Cumberbatch fans. Porter is a big fan...
