Summary/Review: I’ve read all of Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories about Sherlock Holmes and a fair sampling of Holmes’ adventures by other authors (many of which are as good or better than Conan Doyle’s weaker entries). Horwitz’s novel is authorized by the Conan Doyle estate and is a worthy addition to the Holmes canon. There’s a great fidelity to Conan Doyle’s style and settings while at the same time having a modern feel. Anyhow, I don’t want to give anything away but this is a gripping novel and it’s enjoyable to see the mysteries unravel.
