J. Andrew Taylor in his new book, “Sherlock Holmes and The Element of Surprise” published by MX Publishing gives us an untold story of Sherlock Holmes, The Wormwood Scrubs Enigma.
From the back cover: When two prison guards are found beheaded in the barren countryside surrounding Her Majesty’s Prison at Wormwood Scrubs, Inspector Lestrade seeks Holmes’ singular powers to determine how the murders could have been committed in separate locations with the only footprints being those of the murdered guards themselves.
With Doctor Watson at his side, Holmes sets out on this new adventure and uncovers deeper mysteries still; mysteries that will not only test the detectives’ powers of observation and deduction, but his skepticism of the paranormal as well.
If you are anything like me then you grew up with Sherlock Holmes as well. When I was a kid I read everything that Arthur Conan Doyle wrote about the master sleuth and, of course, watched all the movies with Basil Rathbone. Now I do not believe in channeling. Having said that let me tell you that J Andrew Taylor writes just the way that Arthur Conan Doyle wrote and it is like reading one of the originals. I do not know how Mr. Taylor did it but he managed to create a brand new story that fits into the Holmes canon right after the “Red Headed League” adventure. This time Holmes is given an impossible case for him, or anyone else for that matter, to solve. However this is Sherlock Holmes we are talking about here and, of course, I am not giving anything away here, he is going to solve it. The clues are given for us to solve the case. I confess I did not, Holmes did it for me. Let me assure you if you like Sherlock Holmes then you are going to really enjoy this. I recommend it highly!
