    1. Caveat: both authors are friends and colleagues of mine. That doesn't alter how impressed I am with how well they've at once captured the feel of a Conan Doyle story while still having a modern sensibility, particularly in the portrayal of John Watson, whose medical and military background prove useful in the unfolding of the story. It's a good mystery, with facts slowly unfolding and new revelations flowing naturally from our heroes' investigations. Holmes and Watson sound very much like themse [...]


    2. You know what, I have actually never read a book about Sherlock Holmes. Ok one, but let us not count the monster one. There might have been another mashup too.I imagine you know about Sherlock Holmes, if not, then you are kind of living under a rock. I am not gonna explain him. He is eccentric, to say the least.And then there is Watson, and they do compliment each other so well.This mystery is about a mother wanting answers. And they dig deep and it gets complicated. There is the Boer war, polit [...]


    3. Another great story from the Consulting Detective. It starts with trying to ascertain what happened to a sailor who never returned from a mission and eventually leads all the way to the top of the government.Holmes definitly gets a physical and mental workout on this case as he has to fend off multiple attempts on his life, while trying to string together disparate information into a cohesive solution.A rockem sockem adventure.HIGHLY recommended


    4. Did not finish.When Watson starts referring to Holmes as 'Sherlock' I get a bit angsty.But when I start coming across terminology cock ups that could have been avoided with a little research, well, that's throw the book across the room time.


    5. ByMiss Lynon September 15, 2016Format: Kindle Edition|Verified PurchaseI love Sherlock Holmes stories and Mr. Greenberger and Mr. Savile have truly captured the wit and meticulous wisdom of Holmes and Watson.They kept me reading far into the night following the tale of the lost son of Mrs Wynter. Danger and mystery follow our sleuths and lead them to very unexpected conclusions.This is a brilliant book and well worth settling down for a great read.


    6. In London during the summer of 1881, and still early in their now legendary partnership, Doctor Watson schedules a number of appointments for bored, brilliant detective Sherlock Holmes, who has been unable as of late to find a case worthy of his considerable talents. After the string of potential clients are turned away one by one, an unscheduled caller arrives—bringing with her an intriguing case, naturally.Hermione Frances Sara Wynter, an elderly widow, has been unable to obtain a satisfacto [...]


    7. Great story by a keen writer. This tale is informed more than most by the colonial arrangements that were rapidly unraveling around the globe. Afghanistan, India, South Africa, all woven together by greed, government and murder.


    8. I really enjoyed this. It was exciting at times. I'd read more Sherlock books by the authors. I collect these books - Sherlock Holmes and also the ones in this series and by the publisher.



    9. This was simply a crackin' good Holmesian tale. Highly recommended. This is as good as the sub-genre gets.



    10. This is the first pastiche I've encountered wherein Holmes and Watson are at the beginning of their partnership and their friendship -- the story kicks off three months after they met, which I found an intriguing premise. While I wouldn't have minded if the writers had played just a little bit more with the idea of Holmes and Watson still adjusting to each other (they're already quite comfortably familiar with one another, really), I did appreciate such touches as the pair finding themselves sho [...]


    11. An enjoyable read from a novel released to the public only because it has been declassified by the government. The case starts small, with the search for how a young naval officer died, and mushrooms into a plot that involves three continents and the death of a world renowned character. I enjoy stories that begin modestly and then grow to gargantuan levels. Savile and Greenberger have captured the voices of the all the characters well and the settings bring the time period to life vividly. The o [...]


    12. A satisfying story from start to finish. Though I spent a fair chunk of time wondering where the Sorrow's Crown from the title fit in, it all came together. True to the style of Holmes and Watson, the mystery unfolded steadily. The narrative was easy to read and it was enjoyable. The fight scenes were described in accurate detail, easy to reconstruct in your mind's eye. I really liked getting the details of the Boer conflict, well researched and period appropriate.


    13. Terrific Holmsian novelI have read most of the Conan Doyle stories but been away from Sherlock Holmes for some time. This brought back memories of those originals and is a welcome addition to thw series of great detective tales.Very faithful in terms of atmosphere, narrative and mystery.


    14. 3 1/2 stars. Enjoyable mystery, as Holmes & Watson investigate what happened to a young naval officer who did not return from South Africa. Lacking 4 stars for me because just little convoluted to follow at times, & why did officials have to say he was deserter? (Not a spoiler - that's said from start.) Mother wouldn't have hired Sherlock if they'd just said he died in action! (Own)


    15. This was a classic Sherlock Holmes story that was a pleasure to read. The storyline involved interesting history and moved at a nice pace. I really enjoyed some of the side characters that were introduced and thought they added to the story. Nicely done!
