The Improbable Casebook of Sherlock Holmes

2 Feb

“The Improbable Casebook of Sherlock Holmes” is an anthology of seven short stories written by Nick Cardillo and published by MX Publishing.

It is an excellent volume. Every story swings along nicely, with suitably exciting denouements.

Three stories really stood out for me: The Scholar of Silchester Court, A Ghost from the Past, and The Adventure of the Weeping stone. A Ghost from the Past would have to be my favourite, as we rarely get to see the fallout from Holmes’s cases.

Nick Cardillo is spot on with his characterizations. Both Holmes and Watson are canonically sound and their friendship is solid.

It is one of the best single author anthologies I have read. Highly recommended.
