A review by karo_221b
Associates of Sherlock Holmes, by George Mann


I loved the concept of this book: Each of the short stories is told by a different associate of Sherlock Holmes. While we have the 'usual suspects' like Lestrade and Irene Adler, this book also features some lesser known characters such as Langdale Pike or Billy the page-boy. There are ups and downs here - as is the case with every collection: Some stories are great, others ridiculous (especially in the second half of the book). But all in all this was a fun read and I would definitely recommend this book to fans of the great detective.
