Publisher's Summary

From the Supernatural Case Files of Sherlock Holmes:
Many of Holmes's more fantastic cases have yet to see publication, since their grotesque and outré nature would have stretched the reader's sensibilities beyond any normal boundaries. They are, in a word, unbelievable, and I have held these cases in abeyance at Holmes' request to protect both his reputation and my own small credibility as narrator.
But the time has come to reveal them, per Holmes's instructions. I follow these instructions faithfully and humbly, and let my readers judge if we have done wrong to withhold them for as long as we did.
- John H. Watson, M.D.

Holmes and Watson encounter sinister dealings with an American ship from the town of Innsmouth comes to England in pursuit of an implacable revenge.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is not a book for Sherlockiana fans, or Lovecraftians, but if you like weird for weirdness sake, it might be up your alley.

What could Christian Klaver have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The writing could have used a little tightening, and more familiarity with the Holmes canon and Lovecraftian style.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

More familiarity with the text could have helped.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was very disappointed by this. It seemed lazy, and not at all in the style of Holmes or Lovecraft.

Any additional comments?

Poor writing and a lazy plot does not make this an enjoyable listen, but fans of the supernatural might find it interesting.
