It is 1890. A year after Holmes's death, Watson--now in a retirement home--narrates a tale of Sherlockian detection that could tear apart the very fabric of society. The story opens with a train robbery in Boston, and moves to the innocuous setting of Wimbledon.

Anthony Horowitz created a dark and gritty mystery featuring Sherlock Holmes and Watson. Much later in life, Watson recalls the events leading to Sherlock Holmes' investigation into the "House of Silk." It begins as an older woman suspects she is being poisoned. Her son and daughter-in-law insist she eats only what they eat. It also leads to a street urchin, part of a group Sherlock often uses to run errands, and to his sister, working at a pub called the "Bag of Nails." Holmes is called to an opium den. When a murder takes place outside and Holmes holds the weapon, he is arrested for murder. Watson finds himself trying to find a way to free Holmes when he knows a conspiracy is afoot. The audiobook narrated by Derek Jacobi maintained my interest. Horowitz obviously studied Holmes and Watson carefully before embarking on this work. ( )

Very good, if dark, story in the traditional style. ( )

You could do awesome things with the character, as many writers have since it became public property. Instead the author plays it safe and makes a by the numbers pastiche of Sherlock Holmes. It's alright but an opportunity missed - you don't win big by playing it safe. ( )

Anthony Horowitz' take on the Great Detective himself brings Sherlock Holmes alive again on the page, and Watson, too, as his faithful companion. The audio version is spectacularly read by Derek Jacobi, and so in both content and presentation this book was a delight from start to finish. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I think, if you are a Holmes fan, you will enjoy it as well. ( )

So, all of the elements are there: the data, the data, the data. Nothing of consequence overlooked. And yet can Horowitz, like Holmes, make from these drops of water the possibilities of an Atlantic or a Niagara? Can he 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. The characters are, as Conan Doyle himself would have them, as close to cliché as good writing allows. Horowitz's Watson cleverly excuses himself right at the start from any complaints about style or content by reminding us of Holmes's oft-stated judgment of the stories: "He accused me more than once of vulgar romanticism, and thought me no better than any Grub Street scribbler." We must take them on their own terms, then: Mr Carstairs, the troubled dealer in fine art, who is being watched by a mysterious stranger in a flat cap with a "livid scar on his right cheek". Carstairs's wife, the mysterious foreign adventuress. Cornelius Stillman, the bumptious American millionaire. The dastardly Boston Irish gang, led by the ruthless O'Donaghue twins. The madwoman in the attic. The creepy reverend who runs a home for boys. The big set-pieces: the train robbery; the escape from prison; the freak show; the high-speed horse-drawn carriage chase.

Dorothy L Sayers understood the rules of the Holmesian game when she remarked that "it must be played as solemnly as a county cricket match at Lord's: the slightest touch of extravagance or burlesque ruins the atmosphere". Horowitz plays a perfectly straight bat. This is a no-shit Sherlock.

I have often reflected upon the strange series of circumstances that led me to my long association with one of the most singular and remarkable figures of my age. If I were of a philosophical frame of mind I might wonder to what extent any one of us is in control of our own destiny, or if indeed we can ever predict the far-reaching consequences of actions which, at the tie, may seem entirely trivial.
