The idea is good…but

Cannon of the Non-Sacred Writings: Five New Sherlock Holmes Cases by Richard K Tobin

My thanks go out to Steve and Timi at MX Publishing for my copy of this book.

The ideas and mystery of these writing are not that bad. The problem I’m seeing is a lack of editing. It isn’t just a small thing such as using a sound alike word here and there. There are run-on sentences, mangled punctuation, some sentences worded a bit strangely as if English was not the author’s first language and so forth.

The plot and basics of the stories could be reworked and would make decent stories. But a rewrite is required, in my humble opinion.

Since the stories can be salvaged, I will give the book two stars. I really would like to see these stories shine. Don’t give up; you have the ideas down pat. The writing just needs polishing.
