Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The tone is Homesian to the last detail, with the reader swept along to a satisfying ending. A fine addition to the Holmes canon.” - Library Journal

“Siciliano’s tale… is wonderfully atmospheric and moves briskly.” - Publishers Weekly

“The [familiar] tale seems fresher and deeper, thanks both to the invigorating presence of Holmes and Vernier and to the wealth of marvelous detail, especially on the Paris Opera House itself.” - Booklist

    Save your money

    In a word, sophmoric. Very disappointing. Author spends time preaching at the reader about his obvious personal beliefs by trying but failing to veil them with his poorly conceived "Henry". Any half way serious SH fan has to be aghast at the dismissive treatment of the beloved Watson. The 'factual' historic descriptions of some of the sites and situations read like poor tour guides at best. The poor attempt to unveil Holmes' 'hidden' characteristics (that perhaps he's more emotionally drawn to women than SACD had led us to believe) is a failure. Holmes appears out of sorts throughout and gets angry rather than arrogant and dismissive. Psychological perspectives not known in the time period of the tale, but which may be known today are used to explain things and are completely out of place. Author's 'desire' to eroticize the story with cheap language and descriptions of Henry's sex drive probably reveils more about the author's immaturity than anything else. It leaves the reader wondering just how excited did the author really get as he wrote that pap.As stated at the beginning of this review, the book is very sophmoric. Don't waste your money. Would give it less than a whole star if I could.
