Historical Novel Socirey Review

New review, this from the Historical Novel Society: "...the plot is full of surprises sure to satisfy any Holmes aficionado, and the ending is quite affecting."

"Aside from the philosophical underpinnings of the book, the plot is full of surprises sure to satisfy any Holmes aficionado, and the ending is quite affecting. But to my mind the irresistible charm of the book lies in sentences such as this: “In lieu of shaking his hand, I knocked on Dr. Strachey’s mahogany desktop like an aboriginal drummer sending signals from one village to the next.”
