The Sensible Necktie and Other Stories of Sherlock Holmes

3 Jan

“The Sensible Neckties and Other Stories of Sherlock Holmes” is the second volume of Sherlock Holmes short stories from Peter K. Andersson, published by MX Publishing. The quality of the stories are quite on par with the first book.

Peter Andersson writes excellent traditional Holmes short stories. Every story was a good read.

Two stories really stood out for me. The first was “The Adventure of the Hobnail Boots”. His Lestrade is robust and entertaining.

The second story was the delightful “The Remarkable Experience of Professor Parkins”. This story is a retelling of M. R. James classic ghost story “Oh Whistle, and I’ll Come to You, My Lad.” Turning Holmes’s logical eye onto a story of sheer illogical and terror made for a great read.

As in the previous collection, the friendship between Holmes and Watson is strong.

Highly recommended.
