BAKER STREET BABES REVIEW FIGHT CARD

BAKER STREET BABES REVIEW FIGHT CARD

THE REVERED BAKER STREET BABES BLOG HAS GIVEN FIGHT CARD SHERLOCK HOLMES: WORK CAPITOL A RAVE REVIEW ... 

The case itself is a complex and dangerous one, which sees Holmes and Watson having a close brush with death more than once, and every bit as good as Doyle wrote his cases. I had long wanted to read this story, but was kept from it by work, but now that I sat down again to read it I couldn’t stop and finished it in one go. It’s beautiful prose and while not always sounding true to Doyle, the writing style draws you in and involves you almost physically. Salmon makes you feel the incredible heat of the place when Watson steps inside a crowded bar from the bitter cold. There are many passages in the text where I just stopped to enjoy the words, which is a rare thing in Sherlock Holmes pastiches or any kind of novel these days.
