    The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols is based on a previously unknown case found in a Dr John H Watson journal Exciting, right Holmes brother, Mycroft, asks Holmes and Watson to help investigate the death of a British Secret Service agent Found in the Thames, the agent has a manuscript that may have cost her life This is a great historical mystery I loved that it was based on real events and with everyone s favorite clever duo of detectives The travels along the Orient Express are so fun, informative, and entertaining I felt like I was right along with them and that same sense of adventure.The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols had a fast pace, the locations were exotic and engaging, and the writing was smooth and clever Overall, I think mystery fans will be happy to do this Holmes and Watson nod Many of my reviews can also be found on my blog

    I love the Sherlock Holmes stories by Arthur Conan Doyle I ve read all of them over and over again Even though I know the outcome of each storyI still love to read them again The Hound of the Baskervilles has always been my favorite And as a Sherlock fan, I ve watched many movies and television shows based on the characters and devoured many re tellings and new stories with relish Some have been great others not so good Certain classic characters are just difficult to revisit with the same feel as the original.and Sherlock is probably one of the most difficult, in my opinion I have to admit that I have never read The Seven Percent Solution or any of Nicholas Meyer s other Sherlock tales I have always heard great things about his tales based on memoirs of Dr Watson But in my quest this year to read books that I ve been meaning to read but never seem to get to..I had Nicholas Meyer s books on the list of must reads So, when I saw this new book coming out, I jumped right on it I m so glad I did Very enjoyable story I m picky about my Sherlock forays into his exploits need to be true to the original character and not mess about with his personality too much I have to say I enjoyed Nicholas Meyer s slant on the characters He tweaked a little bitbut not in any way that made me cringe The plot is appropriately grandiose Sherlock doesn t take on just any old case, you know Go big, or stay at home smoking your pipe and playing the violin It s a big case with plotting evildoers.but not over the top cheesy Perfect Boo, evildoers Go get them, Sherlock And be sure to write all this down, Watson The front cover art is awesome Very engaging and colorful All in all, a very enjoyable tale I definitely need to backtrack and read Meyer s other Sherlock stories I m sorry that I never took the time to do so before now I m sure I missed out on several enjoyable books Rectifying that now I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book from St Martins Press via NetGalley All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.If you didn t already know, Sherlock Holmes is one of my all time favorite characters, so I was absolutely thrilled when I was approved for The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols by Nicholas Meyer It s such a cool concept that this is from one of John Watson s recently found journals Aside from spending time with some favorite characters, I love that Meyer s voice sounds so much like Conan Doyle s original stories Plus, the editor s footnotes are so intriguing If you are a fan of Holmes and The Seven Per Cent Solution, I highly recommend giving this mystery a try.

    3.5 starsThis was the first Sherlock Holmes pastiche I ve read by Nicholas Meyer I ve been meaning to read them but just haven t gotten around to it yet so when I saw this one offered on NetGalley I couldn t pass it up The story itself was entertaining and I enjoyed their travels on the Orient Express, however, I felt like Meyer s representation of Sherlock Holmes, Dr Watson and Mycroft missed the mark a bit There were instances in which I glimpsed the original characters but I didn t feel like their personalities carried throughout the entire story unfortunately Even so, I still have every intention of reading The Seven Percent Solution in the near future I received this ARC from NetGalley and St Martin s Press Minotaur Books in exchange for an honest review Thank you

    3.5Nicholas Meyer presents us with another newly discovered Sherlock Holmes case from Dr Watson s diaries in The Adventure of the Peculiar Protocols Mycroft Holmes summons his brother Sherlock Holmes to investigate a murder and a document being circulated that warns that a secret group is bent on taking over the world The document appears to be part of a conspiracy to foment and spur trouble My husband and I both read The Seven Per Cent Solution by Nicholas Meyer when it came out in 1974 He offered a new view of the perpetually popular Sherlock Holmes Later my brother shared his copy of Meyer s third Holmes mystery, The West End Horror I thought this would be a fun read Soon after I got into the book I discovered this story is than entertainment The story of a secret group is fake news being used for political purposes.Now, where have we heard that story before It is 1905 and Watson is married to a suffragette and has built a practice Holmes notes that crimes are getting bigger Electric lights are replacing gas There is an uprising in Russia and Czar Nicholas is struggling to maintain control The Jews are looking for a homeland, perhaps in Uganda.Holmes, of course, needs Watson s assistance they are not so sure about the help of a female radical socialist, Anna Strunsky Her beauty alone is problematic for the married Watson Watson s wife made him pledge to end to his risky adventures with Holmes Will his marriage survive or his practice But this is no regular murder investigation behind the murder is a plot that will set Europe careening into mass hysteria and death.The three make a journey on the Orient Express to Odessa, Russia Proving the document a fake is essential Thousands of lives hang in the balance Or is it already too late Once fake news is in the world, it tends to stay there.People love to place blame on something concrete, some other as the source of their problems.This is a fun read, filled with historical references and events, political intrigue, a kidnapping, and an expansion of the classic characters of Watson and Holmes But the underlying message is serious, chilling, and sadly, timeless.I was granted access to a free egalley by the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and unbiased review.

    I have always been fascinated by Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson so when Minotaur Books offered me a review copy I was all in The Adventure Of The Peculiar Protocols by Nicholas Meyer is an interesting read I enjoyed the historical aspect and the facts that went along with much of the storyline the extra information at the bottom of the pages was thought provoking I found the first part of the book quite slow, establishing the storyline, the build up The second part however was very entertaining and fast paced which I found much enjoyable Overall an interesting and engaging read I enjoyed Meyers writing style and felt this was well done A huge thank you to Minotaur for my review copy
