David Stuart Davies: The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (2022, Titan Books) 3 stars

Untitled

3 stars

This is not the worst thing that Davies has written; however, that is not saying a whole lot. All of the twists were highly visible from miles away.

Holmes disguises himself three times, in three different costumes, and the villain uses two disguises. That’s a lot of disguising for 280 pages. The final showdown features them confronting each other while disguised, so I hope anyone who reads this really likes that characteristic of Holmes.
