Undone, (2009), Genesis (UK and Australia title)
The above is the correct order. Honestly, each book can be read as a stand alone. But the background info is good to have.
I read this book based on another reviewer recommending in his review of a book that I was thinking about getting. The reviews on that book were only so so, so I decided to read a book that someone recommended with gusto. This book was pleasant. It wasn't faced paced or cutting edge, but interesting enough. I like Sherlock Holmes as much as anyone does who likes mysteries. The best part about this book was that the chapters alternated between a present day "Sherlockian" and the voice of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in his day. As the Sherlockian was uncovering a mystery, the mystery was being acted out in real time in the other chapter. I was really intrigued by this format. I kept wondering what Sir Doyle had done that would be so interesting to today's Sherlockian - did he murder someone? Intrigue. So, the overall resolution to the book was pretty good. I recommend it. Not fast paced and exciting, but interesting.
It is comparable to the other Dan Brown books in the series.
This book is very similar to the first books in this series. It was a very slow start, so I was worried that I would not be that interested in it. But once the "intrigue" and the "figuring out of the clues" started, I enjoyed it. And honestly, the resulting end of the book was good. What ended up happening is not what I expected, so that is always a good end to a book.
