Sherlock Holmes and The Crystal Palace Murder

Why Meiringen?

Sherlock Holmes readers have always asked, why did Holmes go to Meiringen? And did Moriarty follow him there? And if Holmes did not die in the Falls, what happened next? The familiar stories tell us little. For the first time this book gives us the answers we always wanted. Johanna Rieke’s careful and detailed research, and understanding of the region, show what really happened, and how Holmes escaped, to reappear three years later in London. If Moriarty is now dead, however, his evil work goes on. In London, Holmes and Watson, drawn into an apparently meaningless murder in the Crystal Palace in South London, , soon recognise that much more is at stake. How are a greengrocer’s shop, a dockyard pub in East London, a tattooed seaman and a mysterious German all involved, and who is Moriarty’s shadowy successor? Only Holmes and Watson, in a desperate search and by sharp deduction, can hope, at the last moment, to foil a disaster. Can they prevent many innocent deaths, and protect Britain’s standing in the world?  Even as the story ends, they know that their fight against evil will go on, and that Moriarty’s successors are always alert, a constant threat. As this exciting book makes clear, Holmes’ task never ends.

Review (Egyptian Tomb Mystery)

Sherlock Holmes Society of London 

Following on from Rieke’s previous novel, The Mystery of the Three Monks, we find ourselves back in 1890, and Dr Watson has returned to London after his eventful holiday in East Sussex. Holmes is bored, but soon finds a diversion when a professor of archaeology calls seeking justice for his nephew, falsely accused of murder. What appears to be a straightforward case soon becomes more complex, involving stolen papers from foreign climes, Egyptian mummies, theatre performers and nefarious goings-on at the British Museum. One of Rieke’s strengths is in bringing canon characters into her stories and breathing fresh life into their depictions, so it is a treat to see familiar faces making their entrances to add to the mystery. The climax of the story is thrilling as our intrepid duo find themselves in a fight for their lives. Overall, another gem from Rieke, who weaves an intricate tale with flair to create a thoroughly enjoyable adventure.
