Sherlock Holmes and the Shadow of the Rat

8 Feb

A novella by noted Sherlockian David Stuart Davies.  “The Shadow of the Rat” is a good little story using Arthur Conan Doyles’s hinted at, but, untold story of The Giant Rat of Sumatra.

The story rips along at a good pace.

The relationship between Holmes and Watson flows smoothly and feels right.  Mr Davies has an excellent grasp on the intricacies of literature’s greatest friendship.

The story has the added bonus of an appearance by Stamford, and, major supporting roles for Mycroft Holmes and Inspector Lestrade.

A wonderfully imaginative take on The Giant Rat of Sumatra.

Highly recommended.
