ABOUT THIS BOOK
Sherlock Holmes has just uncovered the truth about the theft of a priceless ruby. The wealthy Lady Damury staged the theft and tried to frame her husband - but just as Holmes reveals the truth, Lady Damury is found murdered. Holmes deduces that this is no crime of passion, but the work of a ruthless killer with no connection to the jewel. With reports of a man in a strange, trance-like state, Holmes finds himself entangled in a dangerous game of cat and mouse with the sinister Dr Caligari...
I love a good old mystery and have always had a soft spot for Sherlock Holmes so I was delighted to receive THE INSTRUMENT OF DEATH by David Stuart Davies which easily transported me into a world of murder and mayhem.
When Holmes solves the mystery surrounding the theft of a ruby that is like no other, it seems to be another shut and close case for the seasoned detective. But when his suspect is found murdered, Holmes is sure that there is something a lot more dark and sinister at work and he finds himself in a deadly game of chase.
A detailed setting and well-rounded and developed characters are just some of the reasons that I enjoyed this story but the magic that surrounds Sherlock Holmes stories is felt throughout and that really made it all the more enjoyable for me. With plenty of misdirection and secrets along the way, there was never a dull moment and I highly recommend THE INSTRUMENT OF DEATH by David Stuart Davies to all Sherlock Holmes fans.
