The House of Silk - Anthony Horowitz


As is suggested from the fact that I haven't reviewed any Conan Doyle, my knowledge of Sherlock Holmes is gained entirely from the screen, not the page. I do have collected works on my Kindle but there are always more tempting books to read. So I can only judge the merits of this "official" spin off as it stands. Horowitz is a respected writer, and his style and period details convincing enough. The content has been toughened up for modern tastes and there are some annoying self-references but, as historical crime fiction, it does the job.
