Sherlock Holmes To a Country House Darkly and other new adventures
It is written by N. M. Scott and published by The Book Guild Publishing.
Within seconds of starting to read the first story I was utterly captivated as I was taken back to the Victorian era of swirling fogs, when Homes and Watson used their knowledge of science, medicine and the detective arts to right wrongs and bring justice where before there was none.
The stories are tightly plotted and the writing is of such a high standard that it might have been written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, himself.
There are stories of murder and revenge and ages-old retribution, of devious land owners, violent robbery, of terrible secrets that became public knowledge under some rather unusual circumstances.
I am not going to reveal the plots of any of the twelve most excellent adventures, but what I will say is that if you are a fan of Sherlock Holmes and his companion Dr Watson or of Victorian era detective fiction in general, you must buy this hardbound book at the snip of £9.99.
You can buy it from the That's Books and Entertainment bookshop at this link https://goo.gl/WRfFc7.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have another story in this book to finish reading!
