Description

I’ve loved much of the work of Anthony Horowitz, who created Foyle’s War, one of my favorite TV series of all time, and wrote the book Magpie Murdersand the authorized James Bond novel Forever and a Day.

August 2022 - I'm the first to reach for the off button when there's too much "jazz" involved but this was a good blend that wasn't overwhelmed by either genre. He’s also written two authorized Sherlock Holmes novels – Moriarty, which was well-written but relied too much on a gimmick; and The House of Silk, which, unlike Moriarty, actually features Holmes as the main character.Horowitz has a fine command of the English language which raises his novel above the mere 'pot-boiler' status of so many author's attempts to emulate Arthur Conan Doyle. Bookended by brief notes from this elderly Watson, we are given explanation for why this story has never been told before.

Canon characters mentioned in the book include Godfrey Emsworth, Inspector Morton, Mrs Cecil Forrester, Stanley Hopkins, Jabez Wilson, Violet Hunter and Jephro Rucastle, Culverton Smith, and Jonas Oldacre. Adrian Harrington Rare Books deal in a wide selection of literature, modern first editions, leather bound library sets, children's and illustrated books and fine and rare antiquarian and old books in all fields.Like, I suspect, many people of my generation, the abiding image I have of the man – and therefore the benchmark against which I compare all other Holmeses – is Jeremy Brett’s portrayal in the long-running ITV series.
