Sherlock Holmes and the Theatre of Death by Val Andrews The Great Lafayette, real name Sigmund Neuberger, was a magician and illusionist appearing at the Empire Theatre, Edinburgh, Scotland. There has been a tragic fire in which many of the performers, including The Great Lafayette perished. His solicitors are having problems with the settling of his estate as he was a secretive man when it came to finances and his diamond rings were not on his corpse. Holmes and Watson are in Perthshire, Scotland. Watson is enjoying the trout streams, and Holmes is relaxing by staying on the bank and enjoying the countryside. They are interrupted by a man in a rowboat, bringing a passenger to find Sherlock Holmes. Septimus Greyshot of the firm, Luckens, Wild, Luckens and Greyshot, solicitors; is in charge of the estate of the unfortunate magician. He fears that the body found is not that of the Great Lafayette. This mystery is full of twists and surprises and just when you think it couldn’t take another twist, Val Andrews finds a way. The case is straightforward and rather easy to read. But the surprises are most certainly there! The only thing that I did not like was that the story ends abruptly, as if one had fallen from a cliff. I give the story four stars. Quoth the Raven…
