The book comprises a novella and two short stories.

A nice little read, though probably not for all Sherlockians. The slight metaphysical aspects may put some of the more diehards off.

Sherlock Holmes and the Murder at Lodore Falls by Charlotte Smith

This is the first Holmes book published by Ms Smith, a member of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London and founding member and Liverpool and Wirral Sherlock Holmes Society

The book consists of three stories, the titular novelette and two short stories. If I were to choose one word for the theme that runs through all three it would be “camaraderie.” The three stories give the reader a sense of just what these two friends mean to eac

This is an anthology of three novellas, all by the same author. All three are quite different, with the only commonality being their celebration of the growing friendship between Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. The title story is the first and longest of the lot. It takes place mostly in 1896, after Holmes’ return from The Great Hiatus. Watson is having nightmares triggered by Holmes’ ‘death’ at The Reichenbach falls. The main client is also having similar nightmares triggered by his experien ...more

Sherlock Holmes and the Murder at Lodore Falls is a short book, only about 150 pages (the publishing information says this book is 172 pages, but the remaining pages contain a list of other Sherlock Holmes stories from the publisher). The first story is the longest, at approximately 110 pages, the second two stories are only about 20 pages each. So, this book was a quick and easy read and only took me a few hours to finish.

There were several grammar mistakes throughout the book, as well as form

This book was terrible. Really perplexed by the positive reviews. Written from the point of view of the characters (not necessarily Watson or Holmes) the narration is out of place and the writing is very...simple. There's no depth. Just odd.
