I am not big on fan fiction, especially for a series as dear to me as Sherlock Holmes but this book was surprisingly good. Dr. Watson narrates an adventure that
spans two continents and involves all sectors of society. A newly married man comes to Holmes with a tale about a strange man in a flat cap who accosted him in the streets. Holmes and Watson get involved and the adventure begins. Some of the usual Holmes characters are involved as well and this lends some authenticity to the narrative. This was a very good read indeed.
