This has been in our collection for years. After all of my Sherlockian reading & viewing last year, this is admittedly the first non-Doyle piece I've deigned to touch. Now, I found reading about Sherlockians amusing (example: "The Sherlockian", read earlier this year). But reading a Holmes novel written from Watson's point of view in Doyle's style...insert hesitation here.

My fears would've been allayed if I'd read the author's info beforehand: "The late Michael Hardwick was the first man si

Boring.
There are many authors out there that attempt to keep the flame alive for Sherlock Holmes, sadly few know where to even look for the matches much less light the fire.

Originally published in 1987, this is arguably Hardwick's best fiction book. Highly recommended for fans of Sherlock Holmes in the original stories by ACD.

Certainly keeping an eye out for more of Hardwick's pastiches after reading this. Very enjoyable, fast paced, and even funny at times; the illustrations in my copy were gorgeously detailed.

Sherlock Holmes investigates a series of seemingly unrelated crimes which turn out to be linked to a conspiracy to unseat the British monarchy.

Nothing compares with the original, but still good.
