Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Holmesians will find much to appreciate in the novel’s depiction of a character whose mind is as keen as Sherlock’s.” Time
“A smart origin story for Mycroft that slots neatly onto the shelves next to the original canon.” Los Angeles Times
“Mycroft Holmes is a fine addition to the canon—compelling, well-plotted, and firmly in possession of a social conscience.” Austin Chronicle
