Barry Day. MYSTERIOUSPRESS.

Barry Day. This one is for Elino. HAPTER ONE. I can’t honestly say I’ve ever thought of myself as much of a fisherman. He may have been an inch or so over six feet but his general bearing and the immaculate cut of what was obviously an expensive suit-tailored, I observed, thanks to Holmes’ persistent training in the rather more relaxed style of our North American cousins-gave the impression of a much bigger man. Come to think of it, though, it was less his build than his eyes that dominated that assembly. Sherlock Holmes and the Seven Deadly Sins Murders. Barry Day. Sherlock Holmes and the Shakespeare Globe Murders. Sherlock Holmes and the Copycat Murders. Sherlock Holmes and the Apocalypse Murders. Sherlock Holmes. Read whenever, wherever. Your phone is always with you, so your books are too – even when you’re offline.

The Sherlock Holmes stories are principaly set in the 19th Century, the age of Queen Victoria. However, the Author has his newspaper publisher character chattering about hunting the Loch Ness Monster with sonar. First, nobody in the 19th Century thought Nessie was real: that is a notion popularized in the 20th Century.

And allowing himself a small whisper of a smile, Holmes settled back in his chair and completed his toilet. I think we might safely say that the price of steel has just gone down. I could not forebear to state what seemed to me to be obvious

And allowing himself a small whisper of a smile, Holmes settled back in his chair and completed his toilet. I could not forebear to state what seemed to me to be obvious. But tomorrow Steel will deny that he was present in the House and explain where he really was. So he will, Holmes replied, but who will believe him? He knows he dined with Mycroft and now you and I know but the rest of the world will assume he is merely trying to avoid the consequences of his actions.

If you know your Alice in Wonderland this tale is a great romp. Interesting story and the depiction of Watson is good. Sherlock is in fine form and Watson keeps the narrative flowing. There is a damsel in distress, Mycroft makes an appearance along with Lestrade. To say more will ruin the tale.

1898. Holmes and Watson encounter American newspaper magnate, John Moxton, whose yellow press Clarion is beginning to dominate and undermine Victorian England. Public figures are humiliated then murdered. Each incident has a parallel in Alice in Wonderland. And each time the Clarion is conveniently on hand. What is Moxton's master plan and can Homes and Waston unravel it in time? And what is the strange bond that links the detective to a man he has never met... or has he?
Reviews:
  • Tuliancel
The story is well written and the characters very much in keeping with the original author. If you know your Alice in Wonderland this tale is a great romp. Sherlock is in fine form and Watson keeps the narrative flowing. There is a damsel in distress, Mycroft makes an appearance along with Lestrade. To say more will ruin the tale. It's a quick read, ends well and leaves the door open for another day.

The Author begins to trip over himself right away. Notable is the dull dialog, quite unlike that of Holmes or Watson. The characters simply do not come across convincingly.

The Sherlock Holmes stories are principaly set in the 19th Century, the age of Queen Victoria. However, the Author has his newspaper publisher character chattering about hunting the Loch Ness Monster with sonar.

First, nobody in the 19th Century thought Nessie was real: that is a notion popularized in the 20th Century. Secondly, sonar is an electronic technology, developed in the 1930s to hunt submarines. THERE WAS NO SONAR IN THE 19TH CENTURY. And when sonar WAS invented, the Brits referred to it as ASDIC. AND it was classified technology for almost a decade. I'm surprised the Author didn't try to cram a Space Shuttle into this piece of trash!

A novel placed in the 19th Century should be RESEARCHED, lest you get anachronisms like Queen Victoria disco-dancing with Julius Caesar--that is, only ideas, people & technologies FROM that era should APPEAR IN the novel. The Author did not do so.

Then there was a thinly-veiled reference to 21st Century sexual scandals. These views have no place in a Holmes novel. The Author's views on Politics and the Media do not improve this novel.

My advice: Do not buy this badly-written, badly-researched book. Instead, take the Author's word processor from him, & hand him a broom. He'd make a decent janitor.

ATTENTION MR BARRY DAY: if you are going to borrow another author's creations, ie Holmes & Watson, then TREAT THEM WITH RESPECT!! You failed to do so.

A Dull, Predictable Holmes Pastiche

I found Mr. Day's Sherlock Holmes and the Alice in Wonderland Murders to be a dull, predictable pastiche. I've read scores better, and this one could have been left for a simple rereading of one of Doyle's superior tales. Here, Moriarty is back, yet again, not really dead at Reichbach Falls. His return seems to have turned him into the Joker of Batman fame because he keeps on sending ridiculous clues to Holmes very loosely based upon Lewis Carroll's famous Alice stories, which leads Holmes and Watson into a silly series of comic book episodes. Actually, the entire story would have fared much better AS a Batman and Robin tale. Day's handling of Holmes and Watson works somewhat but only because he annoyingly refers again and again to Doyle's famous descriptions. Save your money on this one unless you are a collector and have to have every pastiche. I'm just glad the covers are finally closed. Sorry, Mr. Day. This is just one man's opinion, but I can only give your book 2 stars.
