    A very engaging Sherlock novel, not to miss!

    "The Untold Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" is an engaging work written by prolific writer Luke Kuhns about the more elusive assignments the legendary detective and his partner embarked upon. Based on characters created by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the book is separated as extracts from a journal written by Sherlock's partner, Watson. In it are seven short stories that recount many curious and even moving expeditions through the streets of 19th Century London, to the mountainous regions in Switzerland, and to the aid of Queen Victoria in the very heart of the United Kingdom.

    "Untold Adventures" is Luke Kuhns' first publication, and definitely not his last. Knowing his skills in storytelling, it is indubitably a set of adventures that will keep one's mind working (as Sherlock himself would be proud of). Kuhns' attention to the flow of each tale makes it an enjoyable read and every story memorable. Told in retrospect, and from Watson's point of view, it is nothing short of Sherlock in his most uncompromising.

    Dull stories, poor editing.

    The mysteries in the collection are pretty bland; the obvious suspects are usually the right ones, and there are little in the way of surprise twists. In addition to the storytelling flaws are a number of editorial flaws. The book is replete with missing words, misspelled words, and incorrectly used words. Not recommended.
