Most Helpful Customer Reviews
George Mann in his book, “Encounters Of Sherlock Holmes” a Book in the Encounters of Sherlock Holmes series published by Titan Books brings us new short stories featuring the adventures of Sherlock Holmes. From the Back Cover: Brand New tales of the great detective The spirit of Sherlock Holmes lives on in this collection of fourteen brand-new adventures. Marvel as the master of deduction aids a dying Sr. Richard Francis Bacon; matches wits with gentleman thief, A. J. Raffles; crosses paths with H. G. Wells in the most curious circumstances; unravels a macabre mystery on the Necropolis Express; unpicks a murder in a locked railway carriage; explains the origins of his famous Persian slipper and more! 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. However Mr. Doyle only wrote so many Holmes stories before he died. Hooray for George Mann! He has found new stories of the great detective and edited them into this new volume. Fourteen new stories all written in the style and voice of Dr. Watson so that they are just like reading one of the originals. There is even an adventure for Mrs. Hudson as well as Dr. Watson. “Encounters Of Sherlock Holmes” is great fun. Let me assure you if you like Sherlock Holmes then you are going to really enjoy this. I recommend it highly! 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.
