"I read this just after David Ruffle's first book on Holmes, and it has a similar structure - a main novella, followed by a series of short stories. It's markedly different in some ways though, notably in the portrayal of Watson having improved somewhat and the plot of the title story being stronger. Ruffle's Holmes is still a delight to read, with the author capturing him especially well, while the faithful Lestrade is pleasingly close to his established character. Ruffle's Watson admits that it's 'more or less a chase' with little actual detective work to be done, but taken for what it is, it's an extremely enjoyable addition to the Holmes stories." David Ruffle's debut novel Sherlock Holmes and The Lyme Regis Horror - Expanded 2nd Edition got a strong recommendation from The Bookbag (the Uk's leading independent book reviews sit) and the sequel, out in a few weeks time, Sherlock Holmes and The Lyme Regis Legacy gets another big thumbs up. You can read the full review on The Bookbag Website. Sherlock Holmes and The Lyme Regis Legacy is available to pre-order from all good bookstores worldwide including Amazon and soon in all eBook formats - a few pre-publication copies are available direct from the publishers at www.mxpublishing.com for the USA and www.mxpublishing.co.uk for UK and Europe.
