Book Review – The House of Silk

Filed under: The House of Silk — Matilda @ 1:22 pm

We have just added a book review that should be of interest to all. The book is a novel by Anthony Horowitz, a British author of best-selling spy and adventure books. In The House of Silk, Watson is back at work as Holmes’ Boswell, leaving us a story that he feared was too shocking for his time, and left instructions that it not be published for 100 years. The time has now elapsed, and the story has been published. You will find the review in the sidebar on the right, titled The House of Silk.

It is the fourth of February in the year 2012. It has been a severe winter, and the snow lies deep upon the hillsides, in the valleys, and on the frozen lakes and streams. The county snow-ploughs have, however, kept the roads open, and life goes on pretty much as usual, but with fewer down-state tourists.

Here, among the lumber-camps of Michigan, we like to pause on this day and drink a toast to one of our own, a man who traveled down to Chicago looking for better opportunities, and from there went on to achieve fame as someone who almost fooled Sherlock Holmes, but not quite. Sadly, he didn’t fool Moriarty either.
