The fresh hand of man dead for two years... I will put up a SPOILERS ALERT warning although I will try to not ruin the book for anyone. It is simply common courtesy, and I have been taken to task for not giving warning too often! The year is 1919. Sherlock Holmes is visiting at Dr. and Mrs. Watson’s home. One thing I should add is that at no time does the author give the name of the second wife. Mrs. Holmes has less patience with Holmes than Mary Watson had. So it is far from pleasing when Holmes and Watson get into another case… While solving the problems and old friend of Holmes’ is having with his nephew, Holmes and Watson manage to get in a fight. Holmes agrees that he has presumed on Watson’s good nature enough, and he is planning to return home. Inspector Tovey arrives at Watson’s home before Holmes has left for his train. There are unwritten adventures involving Tovey mentioned, and it is plain that this is not their first meeting. The Inspector is seeking Holmes’ help once more. By now Holmes and Watson have patched things up, and agree to aid Tovey. The Inspection states that a hand has washed up on the banks of the Thames near Tower Bridge. This would usually not be strange, but fingerprints prove it to belong to a man killed in WWI. He had part of his head blown off and was definitely dead. But this hand is fresh, and there are surgical sutures holding the hand to the arm, which has been sawn off perhaps four inches above the wrist… The harrowing tale winds from the bank of the Thames, through an abandoned Hospital, to consultation with a Doctor who specializes in treatment of a rare bone disorder, to Germany, and beyond. Along the way Holmes and Watson will risk life and limb searching for the origins of what could be termed “patchwork devils,” while being tracked by a series of unusual agents—who may or may not have interest in the successful conclusion of this mystery… I give the book five stars! Excellent plot and writing! Quoth the Raven…
