'Horowitz has captured Holmes Heaven' THE TIMES
THE HOUSE OF SILK was the first official new Sherlock Holmes mystery and a SUNDAY TIMES bestseller from the author of MAGPIE MURDERS
THE GAME'S AFOOT . . .
It is November 1890 and London is gripped by a merciless winter. Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson are enjoying tea by the fire when an agitated gentleman arrives unannounced at 221b Baker Street. He begs Holmes for help, telling the unnerving story of a scar-faced man with piercing eyes who has stalked him in recent weeks.
Intrigued, Holmes and Watson find themselves swiftly drawn into a series of puzzling and sinister events, stretching from the gas-lit streets of London to the teeming criminal underworld of Boston and the mysterious 'House of Silk' . . .
The House Of Silk
I just finished reading this book and it's a very well described and interesting story. Finally, finding out what the house of silk was on the final pages left me shocked. And once again, I was amazed by the intelligence of Sherlock Holmes and Dr.Watson.
Despite not being written by the original Sherlock Holmes writer I believe it is of a high standard.
If you are thinking about reading it, go ahead. I really enjoyed it and I know many others have too.
It kept me interested the whole way through and once I started it was hard to stop reading
Anyone especially with a Sherlock Holmes or interest in mystery or crime should definitely read this book!!!
