The Crown Jewel Mystery

The Crown Jewel Mystery

This is a 100 page Sherlock Holmes story that focuses on Lucy James. It appears there are a number of books with these two. In this one, they do not know each other. But, we know they will eventually meet. This may even be a prequel. The mystery was decent, but the adventure was very slow. This one did not really stand out from all the other Sherlock stories where he all of a sudden has a young apprentice. However, the attention to detail makes me think that there is potential for this series.

As always, this is a short review for a short book. For more, check out Amazon.

I rate my books as either YES (I will read again) or NO (I will not read again). This gets a rating of NO.

 

Dear Mr. Holmes

Dear Mr. Holmes

210 pages! Why am I saying this is a short read book? Well, it is actually seven stories compiled into one book. Plus I love the “Holmes On The Range” mysteries. While not every story is as good as Hockensmith’s full length novels about the Old West brothers that love Sherlock, this book will give you an opportunity to visit their world seven more times. He really needs to come out with another novel about these guys – it has been too long!!

The Three Monarchs

The Three Monarchs

A 33 page Sherlock Holmes story by Anthony Horowitz.

I have never been a fan of Horowitz. This is a fairly forgettable story. But, if you are a fan of this author, then you can get more info on Amazon.

The Marriage of Mary Russell

The Marriage of Mary Russell

A 56 page Sherlock Holmes story with Mary Russell. Sherlock is a bit elderly. He has a new sidekick. Though, Holmes may be the sidekick now. I was unfamiliar with this series, but I am sure that I will read more.
