Review of "Holmes: The Darlington Substitution"

This yarn begins with Watson trying to sell his book of stories originally written for the Evening Gazette. He scored an interview with Charles Darlington for the radio in hopes of promoting the tome. During the interview, they discussed the stories, which were cases Holmes and Watson were involved in, and therein laid a clue. The day of the scheduled broadcast, Watson went to the Twisted Lip pub to meet Holmes and listen to the interview. Much to their chagrin, it featured another author, not Watson, and it was cut off early. Determined to find out what happened, Holmes grilled Watson on the interview and was sure he failed to deliver its crux. This story revealed the creative mind of the author and allowed us to experience the same crisp humor we’ve come to expect from Mel Small. 5 Stars
