  • This is a first novel by an author new to Sherlockian fiction The presentation of Holmes and Watson is a bit different than is common in such works, but it does seem sensible than others, both in the Canon and in the many pastiches available Holmes and Watson disagree and argue and look at the world quite differently than as we are accustomed to view them On the other hand, the world inhabited by this Holmes and Watson is quite different from that of the Canon and most pastiches It is a complex [...]


  • Sherlock Holmes and the Dead Boer at Scotney Castle, is full of surprises, even for the great detective himself.The adventure begins in early summer of 1904 The President of the Kipling League, David Siviter, sends Sherlock Holmes a telegram, inviting him to Crick s End in Sussex that afternoon to give a talk to the League as an expert on the criminal mind The League includes Siviter poet and children s writer , Alfred Weit, Sir Julius Wernher, and Viscount Van Beers, all rich and powerful men, [...]


  • Sherlock Holmes and the Dead Boer at Scotney Castle by Tim SymondsScotney Castle is an English country house with formal gardens south east of Lamberhurst in the valley of the River Bewl in Kent, England The Castle has a rich history and today belongs to the National Trust.It is May of 1904 Holmes is invited to Bateman s, once the home of Rudyard Kipling and present location of the prestigious Kipling League Holmes has been asked to speak about his methods of observation and deduction Watson is [...]


  • Holmes is Bested SPOILERS I would definitely recommend this book.Mr Symonds has written another wonderful Holmes and Watson story It was particularly interesting because it is a story where the criminals actually best Holmes at his own game By the time he figures out what the Kipling League has done and how they did it, the Kipling League, using Holmes words and methods against him, has managed to cover up their crime so that Holmes cannot possibly prove that murder was performed at the hands of [...]


  • Sherlock Holmes and Dead BoerReview copy provided via Reading Alley in exchange for an honest review.If you re a Sherlock Holmes fan and you ve never come across this book or this author, you ll be pleasantly surprised that you ll really come to like it a lot It s no Arthur Conan Doyle, but it s really very good and could be a worthy successor to the Holmes franchise You like everybody and the mystery that s developed and the friction between two unexpected friends And the writing was really goo [...]


  • I liked it mainly because I live near the sites of the novel It s a bit of harmless amusement, but it doesn t have ACD s style as a pastiche really should JHW as narrator has his inimitable or nearly voice it s possible to develop Holmes further with another narrator 3rd person as with Robert Ryan s WWI Watson novels, or Mary Watson with Jean Dutourd but the literary equivalent of a tribute band needs to stick closer to the original sound.


  • I have never read any Conan Doyle so can not give a comparison to the Sherlock Holmes series but as a novel I enjoyed it, set in Weald of Kent Sussex it is a great mystery and enjoyable read Being set in my home area always helps bring a book to life


  • Tedious off the start the story falls into place nicely, but still just too slow to rate higher.Not as good at the first Holmes book by this author Bulgarian Codex , but solid enough to seek out of his stories.
