These Scattered Houses

31 Jan

“These Scattered Houses” is a Sherlock Holmes pastiche written by Gretchen Altabef and published by MX Publishing.

Set in New York near the end of the Great Hiatus – Sherlock Holmes finds sanctuary at Vassar Women’s College under the guise of Professor Sigerson. Naturally, murder and mystery follow him.

“These Scattered Houses” is a delightful book. It is well written and absorbing. The research is impeccable and the book has a comprehensive bibliography at the end.

Ms. Altabef has done a sterling job. Even though Holmes is bereft of his Watson, Holmes’s voice rings clear and true in this excellent novel.

It is interesting to see Holmes outside of his usual haunt of London and its environs. The story works well and is an excellent read.

Recommended.
