For aficionados only, but well worth the 99 cents I spent. And with some fascinating little factlets as Sherlock Holmes finds himself bemused and feeling tenderly protective of a certain "child"--Mary Russell. He goes to great lengths to protect her, but Miss Mary isn't easily fooled. Loved this little snippet of insight into the beginnings of their relationship, and the use of coconuts was inspired.

A fascinating alternate point-of-view short story that takes place during the first half of "The Beekeeper's Apprentice." I enjoyed seeing the action from Holmes perspective. It will be interesting to reread the original novel with this story in mind.

More detail to the start of the series. Very good. The series started in a whirlwind and the beginning days were just sort of narrated through quickly. I thoroughly enjoyed the detail.
