sherlock holmes the adventure of the monstrous blood Reviews
Craig Janacek's "Sherlock Holmes & The Adventure of the Monstrous Blood" is the first of a small series called "The First of Criminals #1." As with Janacek's "The Assassination of Sherlock Holmes" series, each of these novellas have a "second half" which is a fully annotated edition of the same story containing both scholarly and trivia insights, which is certainly interesting to the real Holmes devotee.Be aware, but don't be put off by the page count. This is a short story; the book's page count is double the story's length as the story is written twice: the second being the fully annotated edition which was previously mentioned. Still, Janacek's story is well written and has a clever plot. His style is well developed, and he provides the atmosphere of that old Victorian England in which Holmes and Watson lived (c. 1883). If you enjoy Holmes, I do recommend this series and Janacek's writing to you; give it a try, I do not think you will be disappointed.
A great Sherlock addition. Definitely had the proper voice of Watson and style of Conan Doyle. I didn't read the annotated version at the back half, but I thought it was a clever idea.
a doctor goes too far in his research
