Series: Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes

It is July 1881, and a frantic mother comes to 221B Baker Street, begging Sherlock Holmes to find her son. A naval officer posted to HMS Dido, he was part of the Naval Brigade that joined the Natal Field Force to fight the Boers. But he did not return with his men, and is being denounced as a deserter.

I've read a few of the books in this series already.  Some of really enjoyed and others have just been alright.  The authors and themes vary from book to book, but I'd love to put a bigger dent in this series.  I'm mostly waiting on this one because I have three other books in this series already sitting on my floor waiting to be picked up.  Murder at Sorrow's Crown will just have to wait until I get through those.

What's everyone else Waiting for this week?  Anyone have any favorite Sherlock retellings?


  1. Hmmm. I can't picture Sherlock Holmes written by another author but I like the character so much I'd give it a try. Enjoy!

  2. I love that there are different authors on each book. I will have to check my library for a few of them. Nice pick!
