ABOUT THE BOOK
A DARK PAST
It is 1894, and Sherlock Holmes is called to a Covent Garden art gallery where dozens of patrons lie dead before a painting of the Undying Man.
Holmes and Watson are soon on the trail of a mysterious figure in black, whose astounding speed and agility make capture impossible. The same suspect is then implicated in another murder, when the servant of a visiting Russian grand duke is found terribly mutilated in a notorious slum. But what links the two crimes, and do they have anything to do with the suicide of an unpopular schoolteacher at a remote boarding school? So begins a case that will reveal the dark shadows that past misdeeds can cast, and test the companions to their limits...
I really enjoy books that are based on Sherlock Holmes and that era of mystery writing but when you are actually reading a story about Holmes and Watson, it is, of course, difficult not to compare it to the original master storyteller. But I am happy to report that SHERLOCK HOLMES - THE LEGACY OF DEEDS by Nick Kyme really worked for me and at times I even forgot that I wasn't reading a story written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle himself.
Brimming with misdirection, danger, nefarious deeds, and the wonderful relationship that existed between Holmes and Watson, THE LEGACY OF DEEDS swept me back in time and kept my gaze riveted to each and every page from beginning to end. When a horrific murder occurs at a local gallery, Holmes and Watson are called in to investigate but as ever things are never quite as they seem. As they delve deeper into the case, there are many twists and turns and Holmes is, as always, one step ahead of everyone else, but as we begin to catch up to him, we will begin to question just who exactly are the victims?
Well-paced, exquisitely detailed, and doffing its cap to the lord of mystery, SHERLOCK HOLMES - THE LEGACY OF DEEDS by Nick Kyme is the perfect read for historical crime fiction fans everywhere and a must-read for Sherlock Holmes fanatics. It is definitely a book that I will re-read again and I highly recommend it. It would make a great Christmas gift too!
