    A modern short story collection featuring the great detective.

    Campbell says: "Improbable and Incredible."
    "Terrific Entertainment"
    Overall

    To dispose of the obvious, I am not a Sherlockian. I also don't have a homoerotic sidekick, ingest heroin on weekends, or have an IQ that exceeds the combined IQ of the FOX nightly news broadcasters (squared). Having said that, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The stories were mixed but overall entertaining, and the reading by Simon Vance was, to put a fine point on it, spectacular--he is Dr.Watson. The handful of stories read by Flosnik were also generally passable (hint faint praise). I enjoyed the book and you will too, unless you have based your Assistant Professorship on a critical analysis of Sherlockian pastiche.

    Bernie Gunther had his first brush with evil as a policeman in 1930s Berlin and came to know it intimately as a private eye under the Nazis, when each case drew him deeper into the enormities of the regime. Now the war is over and Gunther's in Vienna, trying to clear an old friend of the murder of an American officer.
