The final book in this trilogy…

Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Trials by David Ruffle

My thanks to Steve and Timi at MX Publishing for my reading copy.

Surprise, surprise, Watson got married again. I think that along with the three wives that William S. Baring-Gould mentions in his study of the canon, this makes at least four more that I have encountered. This is far from a new idea.

Watson and Beatrice invite Holmes to spent a short time in Lyme Regis. There are some Naval Trials with a submarine that will take place offshore, and it looks more like war is on the horizon every day. Then a knife wielding maniac is on the loose. There is also the case of the ghost of a resident of the town with which to deal.

The book neither bored me nor was over exciting. It seems a bit weak to be the final anchor of a series. The short story has its merits, but is also a little weak.

I give this book three stars…
