Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Fast-paced and thoroughly enjoyable" -  Project Fandom

"This is an excellent bridge between what most people know of Holmes and where he could potentially go" - Raging Biblioholism

"Mann writes Holmes in a eloquent way, capturing the period of the piece perfectly, throwing Jeremy Brett fuelled childhood memories at me with every page and I must say that, if all non-Doyle Holmes adventures are this good, I will certainly read more... Those of you that love your Sherlock in any form, this is a must read.” - CultDen

“Mann clearly knows his Holmes, knows what works and... the book is all the better for it.” - Crime Fiction Lover

"A must read" - Killer Aphrodite

    George Mann in his book, ¿Sherlock Holmes: The Will Of The Dead¿

    George Mann in his book, “Sherlock Holmes: The Will Of The Dead” a Book in the Encounters of Sherlock Holmes series published by Titan Books brings us a new adventure featuring Sherlock Holmes.




    From the Back Cover:  The iron men




    A rich elderly man has fallen to his death, and his will is nowhere to be found.  A tragic accident or something more sinister?




    The dead man’s nephew comes to Baker Street to beg for Sherlock Holmes’s help.  Without the will he fears he will be left penniless, the entire inheritance passing to his cousin.  But just as Holmes and Watson start their investigation, a mysterious new claimant to the estate appears.  Does this prove that the old man was murdered?  Meanwhile Inspector Charles Bainbridge is trying to solve the case of the “iron men”, mechanical steam-powered giants carrying out daring jewelry robberies.  But how do you stop a machine that feels no pain and needs no rest?  He too may need to call on the expertise of Sherlock Holmes.




    This is typical Holmes.  A man dies by an accident, the will cannot be found, the remaining family is quite unhappy and Holmes is called upon to solve this problem.  When I say typical I do not mean boring, not by a long shot.  Holmes is in for a quite a challenge as he has to solve more than one murder and prevent more from happening.  On top of all this Mr. Mann has added the science fiction element of steam powered iron men who are doing daylight jewelry robberies.  This is an intriguing, well plotted and fast paced mystery that goes along at a roller-coaster pace.  Mr. Mann has given us a page turning thriller that will not disappoint any Sherlock Holmes fan.  “Sherlock Holmes: The Will Of The Dead” is great fun.  Let me assure you if you like Sherlock Holmes then you are going to really enjoy this.




    Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Titan Books.   I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
