A Study in Sherlock

What would happen if you asked twenty top writers who don’t normally write about Sherlock Holmes, to write about Sherlock Holmes? And what if these great writers read that proposal and decided that yes, they did have that kind of tale in the back of their minds? Why, you’d have: A Study in Sherlock, Stories Inspired by the Sherlock Holmes Canon. Look for it in late 2011. And watch this space for news in the months to come.

    Started with you by listening to a taped version of “Locked Rooms”, not having a clue as to the subject. Was immediately captured by the subject, the writing, and the reader. I listen to taped novels while walking, – they keeping me going.

    I was chagrined to learn that this was the 9th book in the series, and am now engaged in trying to get in sync by reading the previous books. I’m currently finishing “The Beekeeper’s Apprentice”. Great stuff. I find it a great blend of the Sherlock Holmes I have always loved, humour, and the addition of Marry Russell highly immaginative and interesting. This from a 75 year old American guy.

    Thanks. I’m looking forward to the entire series.

    I listen to your books while hand quilting and traveling. I just finished God of the Hive and loved the character Goodman. If the books are not available in our Erie, PA library, they find the CD elsewhere in the state. I may have to wait a couple of months, but it is well worth the wait. I have always loved Sherlock, but I adore Mary and her quick mind. I often laugh out loud at the interplay between Holmes and Russell. You have really brought them to life! I really look forward to more Kate Martinelli books too. Marcy Scott Erie, PA.
