Review quote

"A fun Holmes adventure that feels a lot like Arthur Conan Doyle's originals, with lots of twists and turns" The Crime Review

"carries the great Holmes name well through the 21st century. If you're a fan of any of the newest Holmes incarnations (whether it be Sherlock, Elementary or the Guy Ritchie films), this will be a great supplement to fuel your love for a great mystery" Culturess (Fansided)

"I was kind of hungry for something weird and geeky, and this story delivered by providing a sort of traditional Holmes and Watson, in an entirely new universe" Atomic Moo

"[Lovegrove] has a fine touch, an understanding of Holmes and of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's style and creative bent" Buried Under Books

"a Holmes mystery in keeping with the originals, and a credit to Lovegrove's skill." - Girl Who Read
