Sherlock Book Reviews - Keys of Death

Posted by Steve Emecz on

Mrs Hudson's Kitchen

"Gretchen Altabef is, beyond doubt, one of the most preeminent writers of Sherlock Holmes pastiches. In The Keys of Death, her dedication to research delivers a credible and compelling look at the world of a young Sherlock Holmes. Her impeccable characterizations, particularly of Mrs. Hudson (whom I also envision as a younger, vital woman) and supporting characters are richly drawn. The story itself builds to a stunning crescendo. And the charming and edifying Victorian gardening journal appealed greatly to this “perennial optimist”. Ms. Altabef deserves high praise indeed for The Keys of Death as well as her previous two novels. Hopefully work on number four is currently underway!"
