This is a deceptive book. It starts off as if it is a serious pastiche, involving Mary Morstan with Holmes and Dr. Watson in the events of “The Sign of Four.” Things seem to go wrongly from the start; Holmes and then Watson wander off on tangents, strange people appear and events become ever more confused. Finally, the reader begins to catch on. This is a parody, a spoof of the Canon. Nothing is as it seems and events are certainly not as related in the tales published by ‘The Literary Agent.’

As a Holmes fan this had everything - a fun mystery in itself but including the main Holmes characters and references back to the Holmes stories was excellent. Mrs.Watson is a great leading lady and the Victorian English language is very 'Jeeves and Wooster' - fun. Look forward to the next one.

A great mystery novel for both fans of Victorian England and Sherlock Holmes. Mrs.Watson is an interesting leading lady and her friend Emily, who dresses up as a man often in the book is a good sidekick.
