Truth be told, I am a hardcore Sherlock Holmes fan and have been so for many years. Shephard blows this adaptation out of the water, capturing the essence of this classic story perfectly. Shephard’s bold-lined, fully-colored, and dark-toned illustrations worked well with the simple story-telling style of Doyle, accenting the thrill of the mystery perfectly. This adaptation closely follows the original, keeping up with the nostalgia of the Holmes saga. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to any in search of a good mystery or a warm welcome back to an old favorite in a new format! *Please note I received a free review copy of this book
