Death on a Pale Horse: Sherlock Holmes on Her Majesty's Secret Service | [Donald Thomas]

Death on a Pale Horse: Sherlock Holmes on Her Majesty's Secret Service

In a momentous period of British history, Donald Thomas's latest Sherlock Holmes adventure pits the Great Detective and his faithful biographer, Dr John Watson, against an international conspiracy led by a disgraced English officer. Colonel Hunter Moran bears upon him The Mark of the Beast; his satanic ingenuity leaves a spectacular trail of devastation. It runs from the annihilation of a British armored column by Zulu tribesmen armed only with shields and spears, to a life-and-death struggle on the sinking passenger steamer Comtesse de Flandre.

Publisher's Summary

In a momentous period of British history, Donald Thomas's latest Sherlock Holmes adventure pits the Great Detective and his faithful biographer, Dr John Watson, against an international conspiracy led by a disgraced English officer. Colonel Hunter Moran bears upon him The Mark of the Beast; his satanic ingenuity leaves a spectacular trail of devastation. It runs from the annihilation of a British armored column by Zulu tribesmen armed only with shields and spears, to a life-and-death struggle on the sinking passenger steamer Comtesse de Flandre.

The heir to the French empire lies dead in the African dust. Europe is brought to the brink of war by forged despatches, designed to enrich gun-runners and assassins. The gold fields and diamond mines of South Africa become the playground of organized crime. Only the detective genius of Holmes can prove a match for the unfolding criminality of Moran and his associates...

    "to little of Holmes in this story"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There are should be more Holmes in it. Some parts are too long.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    OK


    What does John Telfer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    His a fantastic narrator. If I would have read the book myself I probably wouldn't have finished it.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    No

    Story
    "Surprised how much I enjoyed this"

    I enjoy most Sherlock short stories either by Conan Doyle or by other writers and when I started this book I had to initially stop to check it was actually a Sherlock Mystery as the first chapter doesnt mention Holmes at all.

    However I would recommend to any Sherlock Stories fans to stick with this as the first chapter fully sets up and explains the mystery. The writer provides such detailed explanations to the people, places and plots you can truly imagine the situations which were very believable.

    The unique relationship between Holmes and Watson is also as expected.

    I would thoroughly recommend this book, I finished it a week ago and am still thinking about some aspects of the plot as if I just watched a movie... Please write more!
