I'm pretty sure I've read all the Holmes novels and at least half the short stories, so I'd consider myself a Holmes fan. But in addition to that, I've listened to a handful of dramatic adaptations and watched dozens of movie and television versions and it all just goes into one folder in my brain marked "Sherlock." So I can't really speak to the authenticity of this book. When I think of Holmes, I picture Basil Rathbone, who is most definitely wearing a deerstalker cap. That said, I really liked this book.

Had it been any other author taking on this project I might have been mildly intrigued, but I'm sure I never would have gotten around to reading it. But Anthony Horowitz is the creator of Foyle's War and I LOVE Foyle's War. Love it. Turns out Horowitz is a pretty fabulous writer of novels as well. My selfish wish is that he will ditch that Alex Rider series and turn to adult fiction.
