Genre: Mystery

Publication Date: Feb 20th, 2018

Format: eBOOK

Overall Rating: ★★★★★

 

5 Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is a novel by Maurice Barkley. The book is a compilation containing 5 Separate Sherlock Holmes adventures. Each short focuses on a specific case. Written from the POV of Holmes trusted companion Mr. Watson; the stories give the reader good insight into the detective’s intellectual processes for crime-solving. Each story is well written, direct and to the point, but is not lacking in originality, plot, or action and the style remains true to the original style of the Sherlock Holmes “franchise.”

I enjoyed reading the stories. Even though this isn’t the type of book I would usually read, I found the stories to be quick and interesting.

My Favorite Quote’s from the book:

◆ The Holborn Toy Shop

▪ “We must now enter the mine in search of our quarry. I must remind you gentlemen, we are at a great disadvantage. The mine is unknown to us whereas the three rats now hide in their own nest.”

◆ The Grosvenor Square Furniture Van

▪ “Yet off they go to the fray armed only with ignorance.”

I would recommend 5 Adventures of Sherlock Holmes to those who love detective and mystery novels. The book is available on Amazon, free for KU subscribers.

The stories can be purchased together in as the compilation, 5 Adventures of Sherlock Holmes or independently as titled below

◆ The Holborn Toy Shop

About the Author

@MauriceBarkley

Maurice Barkley lives with his wife Marie in a suburb of Rochester, New York. Retired from a career as a commercial artist and builder of treehouses, he is WRITING and busy reinforcing the stereotype of a pesky househusband. Favorite relaxation is throwing peanuts to squirrels, blue jays, cardinals, and chipmunks from his porch. Once, he built a doll hair-making machine using an old sewing machine. It worked, but his wife got tired of making Raggedy Ann dolls, so it sits in the garage.
