This author really has nailed down the writing style of mysteries set in that time..I wouldn't necessarily say ACD, but she is so close. I enjoyed this mystery immensely.

Darlene Cypser’s The Adventure of the Apprentice’s Coin is a two-fer: a solid Sherlock Holmes short story pastiche written in both the familiar first-person Watson narrative in which Conan Doyle wrote almost all the Holmes stories; and for the same low price of 99¢ it’s also written as a third-person omniscient narrator story. Actually, that might make it a three-fer!

In the story, the Great Detective, wounded from a knife attack, is brought home to 221b Baker Street with the help of a young boy.

Charming story of our favorite consulting detective. Not an armchair detective in this case, but a bedbound one, with others having to do the legwork. Alternative to Watson's journal there's a 3rd- person report, which shows a little of what the 221-B pair dont see, but since most of the dialog is identical, doesnt change the perspective by very much.
