Sherlock Book Review - Dead Ringers

Posted by Steve Emecz on

"I first became aware of Robert Perret when reading his Sherlock Holmes short stories that have appeared in numerous Sherlockian anthologies over the last few years. He has a real gift of tapping into Watson’s Tin Dispatch Box and revealing some truly intriguing mysteries.

His new collection, “Dead Ringers”, has eleven mysteries, including some of my favorite Perret tales: “The Gnarled Beeches”, an account of the terrible aftermath of the Canonical “The Copper Beeches”; “The Bogus Laundry Affair”, with a fascinating and terrifying trip beneath London’s streets, and “The Dead Ringer”, a tale of Holmes’s early days in Montague Street, and a different kind of unforgettable terror underneath the ground.

Mr. Perret says that these are eleven of his best, but I know of a number of others just as good. I can’t wait to see them collected as well, and hope that he continues to write many more!"
