First of all this novella has absolutely nothing to do with D. H. Lawrence or any of the exploitations of same in print or on film or whatever is now used. Lady Violet Chatterley is just a name in this story. She makes no appearance but is mentioned as the owner

The characters were 100% authentic - their dialogues, way of thinking and personalities were exactly as they have been portrayed in the original masterpieces. The author’s writing style is flawless, there were no empty words nor meaningless events during the whole story. A very well written book, the dynamics and expressions were just perfect as if they were from Doyle’s pen.
Personally, I did not find the plot nor the twist interesting enough. However, it completely fits in the Holmes canon as a

I didn't enjoy this tale at all, aside from it's brevity. It held no suspense, the dialogue was stilted and formal. The sad venture itself focused far more on logistics than story and was implausible. How are authors able to write using Sherlock Holmes in the title ? If you're a fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, look elsewhere.

Good book.

A well written book. The story line was entertaining. The characters are engaging and true to form. Unlike many other modern Sherlock Holmes stories, the author kept Holmes and Watson's personalities intact.

This book is an incredible tribute to the writing of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The story is reminiscent of something Doyle would pen. Mr. van Wulven is a worthy heir to the Doyle legacy. The story is brilliant. It builds beautifully and ends as though a Conan Doyle style Holmes story would end. It's absolutely flawless in its execution. Well done!! I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot recommend it enough.

This is not actually my Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. It's spectacular how well the author adopted his voice.
