I have long adored the beautiful flow and prose of Sherlock Holmes stories, their very cadence puts me in mind of winter evenings and the sounds of horse drawn carriages in the crisp night air.
As such I was delighted for the opportunity to take part in the book blitz for Sherlock Holmes and the Singular Affair.
In the style of a memoir cum prequel if you will, the story has a deliberate and unhurried air to it much in keeping with the traditional Sherlock stories.
I enjoyed the nods to the original stories and the little mysterious, show off moments, deductions and of course Ormond Secker.
Overall M K Wiseman has created and thoughtful and enjoyable tale in the style of classic Holmes and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Blurb: Before Baker Street, there was Montague.
Before partnership with a former army doctor recently returned from Afghanistan, Sherlock Holmes had but the quiet company of his own great intellect. Solitary he might be but, living as he did for the thrill of the chase, it was enough.
For a little while, at the least, it was enough.
That is, until a client arrives at his door with a desperate plea and an invitation into a world of societal scandal and stage door dandies. Thrust deep in an all-consuming role and charged with the safe-keeping of another, Holmes must own to his limits or risk danger to others besides himself in this, the case of the aluminium crutch.
