"Mr. Holmes is an amateur, Hopkins." Lestrade was smiling around the stem of his pipe as he spoke. Hopkins could hear it. "Not a man who works well in teams, he.

Great view beyond Sherlock Holmes
This is a wonderful journey into the world around and beyond Sherlock Holmes. The story is rich with detail while it explores a mystery from the perspective of Dr. Watson and Insp. Lestrade. It is a unique perspective on the world usually only seen through Watson'c chronicles of Holmes.
Well read with clear characters and an accent that is atmospheric without being distracting to my American ears.
