One thought on “The Secret Notebooks of Sherlock Holmes

  1. Jayaprakash Satyamurthy

    Imaginative, but well rooted in canon A tendancy to rely on Holmes filling Watson in on stories rather than plunging into the thick of things, but still very enjoyable.

  2. Carol

    Disappointing I d read a previous book of Holmes stories by this author and liked it enough to look for But the tales in this book make practically no use of Holmes detective powers and are sadly slight in their plots.

    A modern Sherlock Holmes story compilation As an obsessive Holmes fan I enjoyed reading new stories but if I am being honest, they can t compete with the originals.
