Review: The House of Silk: A Sherlock Holmes Novel
The House of Silk: A Sherlock Holmes Novel by Anthony Horowitz
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ever since the Sherlock show ended, I been on a bit of a Holmes kick so this months feature novel in the The Mystery, Crime, and Thriller Group came at a great time. I'm a big fan of Horowitz's TV work on Midsummer Murders, and also a Sherlock fan so I hoped that it would read more like a Doyle story then a Horowitz plotted TV show and was completely captivated by the new story. The narrator sounds like the Watson from Sir Conan but the writing is quite easy to read, maintaining a historic feel without more modern language.
