Sherlock Holmes and the Red Demon
There are draw backs on this book for the purists. The story itself is excellant. For those who expect Victorian values, Doyale style Holmes and Watson and a certain level of professionalism, this is not the book to purchase. Despite a truly remarkable story line, I found this story void of the characteristics so endearing in the Doyale style Holmes and Watson.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

When Sherlock Holmes set out from London to Minnesota to help out rail road tycoon James j. hill find The Red Demon who was setting fire to the eastern Minnesota railway Holmes would soon be over his head in Trouble . With Hinkle as the setting to this mystery, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson meet many different characters which include a madam by the name of Mother Mary who owns a brothel just out side of town, the sheriff William Thomas who will do about anything for money. As Holmes and Watson begin to close in on the Red Demon they are attacked by the monster of a logger Jean Baptiste LeGrande in a remote logging camp but are saved my a woods man Thomas Corbett who clams to have killed John Wilkes Booth. The action never stops and the story is filled with Sherlock Holmes humor up to the very end when Sherlock finally closes in on the Red Demon for the last confrontation on top of a burning bridge. For anyone looking for a good mystery do not pass up this exciting adventure of Sherlock Holmes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
