Review of "Holmes Volume 1"
Sherlock Holmes, modern day computer hacker, Dr. John Watson, his court appointed psychologist, and Detective Inspector Lestrade are the well developed main characters of Melvyn Small's amusing tale. The story begins when Holmes is approached by two FBI guys in search of a file, and ends with the capture of a sadistic killer. But, what's in between is the mastery of Small. The six short stories are well thought out and intertwined, leaving some queries answered and some left hanging. You'll delight to the quick wit, dry humor and quirky dialogue as Small thrusts his characters into each dilemma. In the last 42 months, I've read 337 books, and let me proudly say this one is in the top 10. Nice work Melvyn Small. 5 Stars
