This is the third book of the series and I have read all three. The first was very intriguing and encourage me to continue. The second was a bit of a disappointment. This one is a vast improvement. A light easy read with a couple of red herrings and a convoluted resolution.

Although there are more books in the series I doubt I will read them as the main characters have not developed since the original one.

I would recommend Martha Grimes series on Richard jury, starting with The man with a load of mischief. I would also recommend Cynthia Herod eagles series on Detective Bill Slider, starting with orchestrated death.

Diminishing returns on this series. Ingenious method of destruction; plotting not so ingenious & a bit slack.

The third and by far the best instalment of a series that supposes that a struggling lawyer gets a great deal on office space in London only to find out that as a condition of his lease he must answer mail addressed to the most famous tenant of 221B Baker Street, Sherlock Holmes. Much good-natured humour as Reggie Heath struggles with the overpowering legacy of Holmes and attempts to win the attention of a beautiful actress from his Conrad Black-esque rival. The plot is ingenious and there is a clever resolution. Great beach reading.
