Stories from the World of Sherlock Holmes
by Lyndsay Faye
Lyndsay Faye is well-known in the mystery fiction world. She dedicates this collection to another mystery great, Otto Penzer of The Mysterious Bookshop. So, her credentials are superb.
This title is a collection of six stories. Each features the viewpoint of someone known to Holmes and his world. For example, the first story has Irene Adler in “The Adventure of the Stopped Clocks.” Other stories are told by Mrs. Hudson and Inspector Lestrade while a couple are by characters less known to me including Stanley Hopkins and A. Davenport Lomax.
The conceit for the book is that these materials were discovered in a deposit box. The reader is to believe that they have now been made available.
Those who enjoy extending their Sherlock Holmes experiences will enjoy this collection. I recommend it.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
