George Mann in his book, “Sherlock Holmes: The Spirit Box” a Book in the Encounters of Sherlock Holmes series published by Titan Books brings us a new adventure featuring Sherlock Holmes. From the Back Cover:  Souls In Torment German Zeppelins rain down death and destruction on London, and Dr. Watson is grieving for his nephew, killed on the fields of France. A cryptic summons from Mycroft Holmes reunites Watson with his one-time companion, as Sherlock comes out of retirement, tasked with solving three unexplained deaths. a Member of Parliament throws himself naked into the Thames after giving a pro-German speech to the House; a senior military advisor suggests surrender before feeding himself to a tiger at London Zoo; a famed suffragette suddenly renounces the women’s liberation movement and throws herself under a train. Are these apparent suicides something more sinister, something to do with the mysterious Spirit Box? Their investigation leads them to Ravensthorpe House, and the curious Seaton Underwood, a man whose spectrographs are said to capture men’s souls. This is typical Holmes.  Socially prominent wealthy individuals are seemingly committing suicide after doing or saying something against what they seem to believe in. Mycroft calls Holmes and Watson out of retirement to investigate. Mr. Mann has placed this story towards the end of Holmes’s career. Both he and Watson have aged and now the duo have to deal with the danger of war  Does this mean that the pair are not up to the task? Never. Holmes is in for a quite a challenge as he has to solve more than one murder and prevent more from happening.  On top of all this Mr. Mann has added the supernatural element of the Spirit Box.  This is an intriguing, well plotted and fast paced mystery that goes along at a roller-coaster pace.  Mr. Mann has given us a page turning thriller that will not disappoint any Sherlock Holmes fan.  “Sherlock Holmes: The Spirit Box” is great fun.  Let me assure you if you like Sherlock Holmes then you are going to really enjoy this.
