Sherlock Holmes and the Ley Line Murders

13 Dec

In “Sherlock Holmes and the Ley Line Murders” by Allan Mitchell, body parts are discovered distributed along the ancient ley lines of Wiltshire. Holmes and Watson journey to Salisbury to assist Inspector Fleming with the case. They are soon joined by Inspector Lestrade, and the game is well and truly afoot.

The level of historical detail in this book is excellent. Allan Mitchell supplies a lot of facts about the ancient monuments of Wiltshire and the resurgence of Druidism in the 18th and 19th centuries, without straying into lecture territory.

The plot is detailed and delightful. An old-fashioned ripping yarn, in fact. Holmes and Watson work well together, and Mitchell’s Lestrade is a complete delight.

The only qualm I have is that the dialogue is in italics, which did make reading a little difficult.

All in all, “Sherlock Holmes and the Ley Line Murders” is a very good read. Recommended.
