Sir Arthur As You've Never Seen Him Before

(And are unlikely to again.)

Wandering through the bookstore this afternoon, I happened on this delightful marketing gimmick for one of the "lesser" books in the Holmesian canon.  My feeling is that if it garners a single additional reader for the Great Sherlock, more power to it.  But it was, overall a delight to see and compare to the others in the Hardcase series.  Don't you just love the lurid red cover and the promising "inspired by a true story?"


  1. That was my father's favorite Holmes. I'm not sure if he would appreciate that cover, though.
