I am eager to re-read this book -- I like her work so much -- but the real draw this time is because of the superb BBC Masterpiece series called SHERLOCK that aired a few weeks ago. Three episodes wasn't enough!

So I finished it -- I love Naslund's writing -- her ability to weave historical fiction and historical fact in tiny doses so subtle that if you miss it it doesn't matter, but if you get it the book opens up to you in beautiful and brilliant ways. The story itself had the real authentic voice of Watson and all the loveable characteristics of Holmes. A quick read and fun.

Saundra Brewer Well, your review piqued my interest enough that I shall also read this book. Thank you for this and all your other reviews which I find interesting and sometimes stimulating!

Gabrielle Yes, but did you see the Masterpiece series on PBS?
