    a fun mystery

    The Six Messiahs, sequel to the fabulous The List of 7, is a good mystery with plenty of action.

    Arthur Conan Doyle is back and on an American book tour with his brother Innes. There, he meets up with Jack Sparks, but it's not really the same Jack Sparks from the previous book. The Jack in this book is a broken man. After his near fatal fall from the last book, Jack turns sour and bitter and has lost everything I loved about him. This was disappointing for me but I guess it's part of the story and adds some suspense around whether or not Doyle can bring the old Sparks back. Along with Doyle, Innes and Sparks, there are several others characters they meet up with. Some of them seem to be having the same dreams about a black tower in the desert and a river of blood. So five characters are having this crazy dream but the real surprise comes when we learn who the sixth one is. Let's just say it's a blast from the past....meaning someone from The List of 7. And this mysterious number six has mad plans. It's one of those good versus evil scenarios that I've seen one too many times. But the characters are good and the way it all plays out is interesting.

    So, overall I enjoyed this book. The story wasn't nearly as good as The List of 7 and the characters were not quite as fun. There wasn't as much humor. It's a decent follow up though and worth a read.

    A Holmes and Doyle Fan

    I was excited about this book after having read 7, but once I got into it, I couldn't wait to finish, because it was terrible and I was wasteing my time. Poorly written and the finish is awful with how it leaves you hanging.

    Big Disapointment!

    I was very excited about this book after reading 'List of Seven' but it fell short to say the least. It seemed like Frost was reaching for a story line because it had very little substance. There were new charaters that had very little background. One the important charaters didn't fit at all and the ending was poor.It was very disjointed and the twist to Jack's character seemed out of context. I was soorly disappointed because I thoroughly enjoyed 'List of Seven.'

    Expected too much

    Perhaps I expected too much after 'The List of 7', but this just didn't measure up. Slow at times and confusing in places. The ending was some salvation, but this just isn't the quality of his first book.

    Read the 'List of 7' first

    This book wasn't quite as riveting as the first one, but it was still quite good. Doyle is back with his brother Innes, and meets Eileen Temple again in America. Jack's back and so's Alexander. New charactrs add depth and humor. Beautiful unexpected twist at the end, but I won't give it away here. Still, '6 M' pales in comparison to 'L7.'
