The Cotswolds Werewolf and other stories of Sherlock Holmes

2 Nov

“The Cotswolds Werewolf and other stories of Sherlock Holmes” was written by Peter K. Andersson and published by MX Publishing is 2014.

This great book comprises a novella: The Adventure of the Cotswolds Werewolf; and four short stories: The Adventure of the Velvet Lampshade, The Adventure of the Missing Mudlark, The Adventure of the Forking Paths, and The Adventure of the One-Armed Pugilist.

Usually with an anthology you get at least one dud story. Not this time. All five stories were excellent with each story being well plotted and well written. The titualar story has someone…or something, killing sheep in a small Cotswolds village. Holmes, reluctantly dragged there on holiday by Watson, takes on the challenge after the killer starts on people.

The friendship between Holmes and Watson is front and centre, which is something important to me in a pastiche.

A fabulous traditional Sherlock Holmes tale that will appeal to many. The Holmesian references scattered throughout are also fun to find.

Highly recommended.
