Sherlock Holmes - The Four-Handed Game
Holmes and Watson find themselves bombarded with an absolute avalanche of dramatic cases! Holmes enrols Inspectors Lestrade and Bradstreet to help him play a dangerous four handed game against an organisation whose power and influence seems to know no bounds. As dissimilar as each case seems to be, robbery, assault and gruesome murder, Holmes begins to suspect that each one has been meticulously designed to lure him towards a conclusion that even he could not have anticipated. However, when his brother Mycroft goes missing, he realises that he might just be running out of time ...
" I'm going to keep this short and sweet, without leaving too many spoilers! This book is by far the best Sherlock Holmes pastiche. I've read the first part of this trilogy 'The Unholy Trinity' and this series is going from strength to strength. I look forward to the final instalment with anticipation and excitement. Thoroughly recommended to EVERY Sherlock Holmes fan!! "

" ... the overall impression I had as I closed this good romp with a childhood hero was that Gilbert has brought Sherlock back to life, with a believable reproduction of dialogue, behaviour and action. "

" Every one of Paul D Gilbert's Holmes books have been thoroughly entertaining. His take on Sherlock Holmes is inspired, in part, by the Jeremy Brett portrayal in the Granada TV series, but PDG has taken the flamboyant personality and added to it, in the process making Holmes a much richer character. Holmes is still the great detective, but occasionally he appears, to my mind, almost vulnerable. Gilbert writes confidently, he is at the top of his game. A fantastic book.
