Sherlock Book Reviews - The Additional Investigations of Sherlock Holmes

Posted by Steve Emecz on

After writing for a number of years, chiefly in the espionage field, Arthur Hall write a Sherlockian pastiche. And as so many have discovered before him, it’s an addition that cannot be denied – either for the writer, or those who want to read them. Fortunately, Mr. Hall is very good at it.



Over the last several years, Hall has written quite a few excellent Holmes novels, and even more Holmes short stories, all for various anthologies, mostly “The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories”. There have been several previous collections of these, and this latest volume brings us seven more, all told in the true Canonical style about the True Holmes and Watson. There are no foolish modernizations here – these adventures could have appeared in the original Strand magazine. And the good news is that Mr. Hall continues to write more. I look forward to each one!
