out who to trust Also I figured out who the bad guy was way too early.And the ending was unconclusive Hopefully the next book will wrap it up a little better Refreshing take on Sherlock Holmes Reggie,

that a body turns up in his apartment What can Reggie do except some sleuthing of his own This was a fun, quick read The dynamic between the brothers endeared me to the plot and I really like this new take on an old story I look forward to reading others from this series Audiobook Comments I enjoyed the narration, though there were some mispronunciations as the British reader did an American accent i.e Me thane opposed to Meth ane but overall good book.YouTube Blog Instagram Twitter Snapchat miranda.reads Happy Reading Reggie, the main character, is pompous, over bearing, rude, and not too bright a lawyer who doesn t take the time to read a rental contract Gimme a break Reggie s brother Nigel is pathetic, ineffectual, whiney, and useless.Laura, Reggie s girl friend, is shallow, too intuitive to be believable, and prone to what is supposed to pass for witty banter but only varies between annoying and inane.If it had not been for the plot, I would have called it quits about 30

how you find yourself mesmerized by something so horrific you can t believe it That s this book Just when you think the author has reached the lowest point he can possibly go, the floor drops out and he finds a whole new level of low.Does it annoy you when a character conveniently forgets an important very important appointment Does drive you insane when a character forgets where he she put the most important papers in his her life What about when someone just knows something because he she is so blamed clever If these are the types of plot points you hate, you ll find them all andin this mess This was a disappointment I didn t finish it.The description of the book made it sound like there was a big Sherlock Holmes connection, but really the only involvement of Holmes is the fact that the offices one of the main characters leases is on Baker Street, and people write letters to Sherlock at that address The owner of the building requires anyone who rents the premises to respond to the letters with a form letter response So the misleading suggestion of a Holmes connection was the firs This was a disappointment I didn t finish it.The description of the book made it sound like

the first disappointment.The second disappointment was the characters not one of the ones introduced in the first third of the story which was as far as I could stand to read was at all likeable or even interesting to me, and couldn t manage to work up any interest whatsoever about what might happen to them.Finally, this was presented as a mystery, and I suppose if you REALLY stretched, you could call the fact that one of the main characters becomes interested enough in one of the letters to Holmes to drop everything and run off to L.A to try to find the grown woman who when she was eight years old 20 years ago, wrote a letter to Holmes.The problem is that virtually nothing happens in the first third of the book There s some set up of the two brothers who are the main characters, but it s too much detail, and it is dull as dirt, so maybe the rest of the book getsexciting, but I wasn t willing to wastereading time risking that hope
