Reviews

A sharp, affectionate, light-footed collection.

-- "New York Times Book Review"

Devotees of the greatest of all fictional detectives will welcome this anthology from King and Klinger who have assembled a murderers' row of talent, including bestselling authors not usually associated with Holmes and Watson.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

A notorious lawsuit over whether the Great Detective was in the public domain-he is, according to the court-held up this sequel to King and Klinger's collection A Study in Sherlock, but it's well worth waiting for...The range of the fifteen new stories here is remarkable.
