Six Not-So-Compelling Sherlock Holmes Stories

A Most Diabolical Plot by Tim Simons

Thanks to both MX Books and the author for copies of this book.

First, let me tell you a little about the stories. What I say here will in nowise spoil any mysteries.

In A Most Diabolical Plot, Colonel Moran returns with a most unusual weapon…

Die Weiss Frau concerns a woman accused of spying for Germany…

The Ghost of Dorset House deals with the corpse of a suspected burglar. It takes place during the Great Hiatus…

The Mystery of the Missing Artifacts is about a dead man in a field with an arrow in his eye…

The Pegasus Affair has another returning person, John Mason of Shoscomb Old Place…

The Captain in the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment concerns a man in uniform…

I have delayed reviewing this book because Tim Simons asked me himself. I always try to give an honest review, and I don’t like most of the stories. They just don’t resonate with me like Tim Simons’ novels always do. I would say that The Ghost of Dorset House is my favorite, and indeed, the only story I really liked.

I am so sorry, Tim, but I can only give the book two stars…

Quoth the Raven…
