"Internationally bestselling author Lyndsay Faye was introduced to the Sherlock Holmes mysteries when she was ten years old and her dad suggested she read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's short story "The Adventure of the Speckled Band." She immediately became enamored with tales of Holmes and his esteemed biographer Dr. John Watson, and later, began spinning these quintessential characters into her own works of fiction ... Faye's best Holmes tales, including two new works, are brought together in [this book], a stunning collection that spans Holmes's career, from self-taught young upstart to publicly lauded detective, both before and after his faked death over a Swiss waterfall in 1894. In "The Lowther Park Mystery," the unsociable Holmes is forced to attend a garden party at the request of his politician brother and improvises a bit of theater to foil a conspiracy against the government. "The Adventure of the Thames Tunnel" brings Holmes's attention to the baffling murder of a jewel thief in the middle of an underground railway passage. With Holmes and Watson encountering all manner of ungrateful relatives, phony psychologists, wronged wives, plaid-garbed villains, and even a peculiar species of deadly red leech, [this book] is a must-read for Sherlockians and any fan of historical crime fiction with a modern sensibility."--Amazon.com.

Faye's Sherlock Holmes' stories are absolutely astounding. No wonder Strand Magazine published them! Thank goodness this collection has been published and how wonderful that it includes two new stories from Faye.

She does a good job portraying Holmes and Watson like Conan Doyle would have, but she interests a little more humor into the writing.
Very enjoyable, never read a bad story by her.
