Annotation:
With gusto and understated assurance, Anthony Horowitz delivers on the high expectations surrounding his first "officially approved" addition to the Sherlock Holmes canon. With the full support of the Conan Doyle estate, Horowitz (whose previous work includes the Alex Rider series and numerous pieces for film, theater, and television, notably "Poirot" and "Midsomer Murders") resurrects the most classic of all private investigators, the detective against which all others are measured. Well, actually, he begins the book with the premise that Holmes is dead. Which hardly matters, because in the vivid and richly colored imagination of our beloved narrator, Dr. Watson, Holmes is as alive as ever. Watson takes readers back to 221B Baker Street, circa 1890, telling a never-before-told tale of an early investigation. Watson informs readers that only now is it appropriate to reveal the details of this most shocking of all cases. Regardless, fans of Sherlock Holmes will relish Horowitz's light touch and attention to details, in terms of the story, the setting, and, most importantly, the characters.

"Can [Horowitz] astonish us? Can he thrill us? Are there ?the rapid deductions, as swift as intuitions, and yet always founded on a logical basis' that we yearn for? Emphatically, yes." - Ian Sansom 10/27/2011
