Sherlock Book Reviews – Sherlock Holmes and The Pandemic of Death – Sherlock Holmes Books by MX

Sherlock Holmes Society of London

Daniel D Victor is a prolific writer of Holmesian pastiche, whose output has a distinct tendency towards literary connections, and this is the seventh book on that theme. As is so frequently the case, it is based on a manuscript found in that evidently huge, and seemingly inexhaustible, despatch box in the vaults of Cox and Co. I will not do anything to spoil the plot for you, since it is an enjoyable read in many different ways. Not only are there literary characters involved, but medical ones too, and accordingly this book is both interesting and topical. Watson comes out all right in the end, once Holmes has brought his skills to bear on the problem. There are sufficient Canonical references to keep things adequately grounded.

Sherlock Holmes and The Pandemic of Death is available from this site as well as all good bookstores including:

Amazon USA      Book Depository (free worldwide shipping)

Kindle      Barnes and Noble

Quarantines, masks, death—terms familiar to anyone who faced the so-called Spanish Flu of 1918.  World-wide, it is estimated that the horrifying influenza killed more than 50 million people, significantly more than did the guns of the Great War, which was just then coming to a close.  And yet no one has ever heard from Sherlock Holmes or Dr. Watson concerning their own experiences surviving the terrible virus—until now.  In a recently-discovered manuscript, Dr. Watson reveals the secret which for years had kept him silent about the deadly pandemic.  Only when he meets the eccentric American novelist Sinclair Lewis is the truth pried free and the story of an ingenious murder revealed.
