The wormhole from London to Berlin—18 years and one week apart…

Sherlock Holmes and the Portal of Time by Michael Druce

I guess a possible spoiler warning is required, although I reveal nothing that the back cover doesn't cover...

My thanks go out to Steve and Timi at MX Publishing for my copy of this novel! May Holmes always be on your side in any problem in your life!

HG Wells returns from a trip to Scotland with a gunshot wound in his leg. Asked by his wife what happened, he states that he went to Germany in the future and was attacked by Nazis!

Holmes is contacted by Wells’ wife Jane who believes the case cannot go to the authorities. Wells had been preparing for a tour in the United States with his friend, Albert Einstein. Einstein is kidnapped and held for two days and released unharmed. He decides to return to Berlin…

With the discovery of a stable wormhole between Loch Naire, Scotland and Berlin, Germany, it becomes possible for those in the know to time travel. The two fixed points are eighteen years and one week’s difference in time. It would be theoretically possible for someone to change the future by changing the past. It wouldn’t need to be a major change; even a minor discrepancy would have an exponential result.

Unfortunately, Professor Moriarty is one of the people “in the know.” He has already changed the past and if Holmes and Watson cannot repair the damage, Germany will become unstoppable in the upcoming WWII…

I thought the book was well written and the pace just right! The ending was a tad predictable, but still a great story overall. I give the book four stars!
