    EBOOK / PDF [TheExecution of Sherlock Holmes New Adventures of the Great Detective] Having read a previous Donald Thomas Sherlock Holmes collection Sherlock Holmes and the Ghosts of Bly And Other New Adventures of the Great Detective I thought I'd try another The first was all right and I did like Thomas' style and use of languageThis set was disappointing Not only was he clumsy in historical references shoehorned in like he was furiously consulting Wikipedia and adding details in in rewrites

    EBOOK / PDF [TheExecution of Sherlock Holmes New Adventures of the Great Detective] A fun but forgettable collection of Sherlock Holmes pastiches They were slightly longer than I would have liked five stories in a book of 350 pages and Watson's voice didn't ring entirely true to me maybe his upper lip wasn't stiff enough in his descriptions of certain characters? Also Mycroft comes across as very irritating and not very smart I always thought he was supposed to be even brilliant than Sherlock but except

This book is both singular and I think consistent than the other Holmes pastiches by Mr Thomas that I read before this volume Overall I think this collection of stories had punch I also find myself writing details into this review than I normally do maybe not so much as to be spoilers but enough to illustrate specific thoughts about the collection Again I find myself only giving it a 3 because it just doesn t uite deserve the 4 call it a definite 35On a side note I an many others are so picky about the Holmes stories that at times we may lose sight of the great pleasure they bring us For true fans any tale of the Great Detective is satisfying because it gets us another fix The irony of course is that Conan Doyle wrote his Holmes tales uickly and they are rife with errors and contradictions and yet these are the gold standard One should have pity on the author who dares take up the pen word processor to follow in his footsteps Instead we judge harshly because they are not Conan Doyle I suspect I am as guilty as anyone else in this regard That s it for the mea culpasTo be sure the opening tale The Execution of Sherlock Holmes is very different and dark We get Holmes tale as it occurs to him Watson adding in a framing story of how he acted during this time and how Holmes related his part to him While the author may have woven a nugget of historical fact into the story an explosion and fire it brings together a collection of villains intent on the destruction of SH It didn t occur to me at the time but after completing the collection I wondered how this SPECTRE like association began It made for good reading nonethelessThe uality of writing is very high as it has been in all of Mr Thomas books so far In this book I felt fewer of the moments when a phrase or mannerism grated on my sense of Holmes and Watson But the author traded small issues for larger ones The title tale is one such cleverly written but very bold Another has Holmes operating as a one man code breaking organization ok Watson does lend his assistance Now it is true that Holmes has broken codes cryptograms too in the official canon one thinks immediately of The Dancing Men but those were ciphers created by individuals or criminal organizations not the intelligence arm of a foreign government It is an engaging tale to be sure There is an excellent mix of detection mixed in with the code breaking and there may have been some historical fact other than the names and types of British warships prior to WWI used but that I cannot judge Does this strain the credulity of even the most ardent Holmes fan I thought it was reaching a bitThe remainder of the stories is a decent group of tales spanning a man falsely accused of murder in a small village the early 20th century fascination with spiritualism mesmerism and phantasms and the coronation a year after his mother s death of Edward VII Each is a fairly well constructed tale the murder accusation being perhaps the weakest in the group and holds the reader s attention The final one brings back a character discussed but never met from the first story which is the foil against whom Holmes judges himselfIn this last tale the villain is stuck on a railway bridge over the Thames cut off on one end by Lestrade and a group of policemen On the other side Holmes and Watson are advancing as the man fires off his last shots the final one being aimed at Holmes over a short distance Now this is what I object to rather than both firing simultaneously like in some many other tales think Peter Gunn or a western or film noir Holmes fires only after further approaching the man Now is that sporting or what It most certainly isn t cricket I think it diminishes Holmes making him feel smaller and pettier than he should True he had stated throughout the story that this was to be a duel from which only man would survive infuriating his brother Mycroft and Lestrade along the way but it still feels wrong Holmes is not the wild gunslinger who we expect to shoot first or an unarmed man Not that shooting first is a bad thing I am one who strongly objects to George Lucas re writing the original Star Wars film so that Han Solo does not fire first in the barOverall I think this collection of stories worked best for me so far There is plenty of good plotting detection and characterization throughout the author s expansion of the adventures of Holmes and Watson I would not have a fan miss any of them Read and enjoy
