Maxim Jakubowski June 2015 Highly Recommended. The attraction of the Baker Street master of detection never wains and hordes of writers keep on crafting new tales featuring him. Laurie King, author of the ingenious and bestselling Mary Russell series in which the younger wife of Homes leads the proceedings and major Conan Doyle expert Klinger have assembled a wonderful array of contributors for a collection of all original stories with contributions by such major writers as Cornelia Funke, Sara Paretsky with a feminist angle on the canon, Michael Connelly with Harry Bosch in tow of course, Jeffery Deaver, John Lescroart, Harlan Ellison, Denise Hamilton and many more, offering new cases, angles and perspectives, even a cartoon, not just paying homage to a legendary character but also displaying cunning imagination and variations on stories and protagonists we thought we knew all about. A gentle delight. And there can never be enough Holmes, Watson and Moriarty, can there? ~ Maxim Jakubowski
