TITLE: SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE AMERICAN ANGELS
AUTHOR: BARRIE ROBERTS
Details: A Sherlock Holmes pastiche
This is a Sherlock Holmes mystery pretty much as you'd expect a Sherlock Holmes mystery to be. A complicated case starting with coded messages,followed by a double murder, quickly turns more complicated with the involvement of Jacobites, a stash of lost gold, and a plot to overthrow the American government.
The game (which is very much afoot) takes Holmes and Dr. Watson to the Scottish Highlands and a decendant of Bonnie Prince Charlie ass well as more murder and violence. In the end, as expected, Holmes solves the case in his own unique manner from clues nobody else has even noticed, while poor Watson doesn't have a clue.
An enjoyable read, and if I run into more Sherlock Holmes books by this author I will happily read them, although I won't be going out of my way to find them.
