Anthony Horowitz does an amazing job capturing the Victorian era of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his wonderful characters. Watson and Holmes are portrayed just as if this was written by the pen of Conan Doyle. This story is very true to form and even the plotting is very similar to the original author's, but you will find that the story is a bit more graphic and puts the famous detective into some very tricky and dangerous situations. When a man comes to see Sherlock at 221B Baker Street asking him to find an Irish man who had terrorized him on his recent trip to America and followed him back home to England. This request puts Holmes and Watson on an extremely dangerous journey that unearths some very powerful men, and the abhorrent secrets that they will stop at nothing to protect. Horowitz does a truly remarkable job of creating this mystery and its realistic atmosphere. Highly entertaining. It was a pleasant surprise as I felt that I was reading a newly found story by the great man himself.
