    One thought on “The Adventure of the Pharaoh's Curse”

    1. Tricked! How appropriate for a mystery. When I selected to buy this edition of "The Adventure of the Pharaoh's Curse," it said that it was about 170 pages. While reading what appeared to be the ending in the middle of the book, I turned the page to surprisingly discover that it was indeed the end of the book. The "second half" of the book was a fully annotated edition of the same story, which was interesting. Surprise number 2: This is the first short story of 3 stories in this mini-series. It s [...]

    2. Why The Double Book?That's right, my copy of this book contained the same one twice? Very strange!! However, that said, it's a really good read for Sherlock fans. Loved the style it was written as well, just like an original Conan Doyle, (Holmes and Watson) mystery. Guess I'll need to by books 2 and 3 to find out what happens next, as your left on a cliffhanger. By with confidence, though perhaps twice as said.

    3. I continue to like this author's take on Holmes. This is part of a trilogy, so ends on not exactly a cliff hanger, but definitely didn't wrap things up. A good story, more of a novella. Eaay reading for sleepless nights.

    4. A passable take on Holmes, though I thought the character development a little lacking. I felt I had to rely more on my previous encounters with Holmes and Watson rather than the author's writing to flesh them out.

    5. Adventure of the Pharaoh's CurseA good pastiche of Holmes' cases without resorting to flagrant imitation. We shall see how well Mr. Janice handles case 2.

    6. Return of SherlockI am not sure why the various views of the story were necessary. The characters were drawn in the Sherlock format but the plot was rather weak.

    7. I really enjoy the "continuing" stories of Sherlock Holmes here. I would recommend these to anyone who likes Sherlock!
