Mary Ann’s December Recommendation

The House of Silk: A Sherlock Holmes Novel by Anthony Horowitz

“This new Sherlock Holmes mystery was commissioned by the Arthur Conan Doyle estate.  The story has familiar elements such as Dr. Watson, the Baker Street Irregulars, Mycroft, etc.   The events are more earthy and violent than in Doyle’s mysteries, but the style is very similar.  If you’re a fan of the originals, you’ll enjoy spotting Sherlockian details.  Horowitz is a best selling Young Adult author, so he’s adept at writing a quick-paced story.”

  1. I just finished this over break and I loved it – Horowitz does an amazing job of weaving in pieces of other Holmes stories, and his writing style seems very natural but uncannily close to Arthur Conan Doyle’s. I hope we’ll see more!
