I Recommend This Book


The Sherlock Effect is a homage to Conan Doyle that he would be proud to acknowledge.  It compliments but doesn't copy the iconic detective and his powers of observation.  Growing up  Christopher Sherlock Webster found his name a burden.  But after his Holmes-obsessed father passes away, he delves deeper into Conan Doyle’s stories and discovers that he too has an affection for Holmesiana and a talent for deduction.  With his marketing friend Mo Rennie, he opens an agency devoted to solving the type of unusual crimes that Holmes himself would enjoy.  Christopher may be a tad bit reluctant to dress the part (Mo insists it is important for branding), but he addresses their unusual cases with enthusiasm and perception.  

I was very impressed by the creative mysteries Raymond Kay Lyon created to challenge Christopher.  The stories were unique and had no graphic violence so they are easily enjoyed by Holmes fans young and old.  I enjoyed The Sherlock Effect and I hope that Raymond Kay Lyon follows it with another collection of stories featuring Christopher Sherlock Webster and Mo Rennie.

5 / 5

I received a copy of The Sherlock Effect from the publisher and in exchange for an honest review.
