Review: The Execution of Sherlock Holmes: And Other New Adventures of the Great Detective (Sherlock Holmes #3)

User Review  - Cherilee - Goodreads

Started out pretty good. The first mystery was interesting but not a typical mystery. However, if you are going to write about Sherlock Holmes as Arthur Conan Doyle did you have big shoes to fill and the second mystery in this book quickly doused any interest I had. Read full review
