Publisher's Summary

Only hours after Holmes and Russell return from solving one murky riddle on the moor, another knocks on their front door...literally. It's a mystery that begins during the Great War, when Gabriel Hughenfort died amidst scandalous rumors that have haunted the family ever since. But it's not until Holmes and Russell arrive at Justice Hall, a home of unearthly perfection set in a garden modeled on Paradise, that they fully understand the irony echoed in the family motto, Justicia fortitudo mea est.

A trail of ominous clues comprise a mystery that leads from an English hamlet to the city of Paris to the wild prairie of the New World. The trap is set, the game is afoot; but can Holmes and Russell catch an elusive killer, or has the murderer caught them?

    "Not my cup of tea"

    Narrated by an Englishwoman and in old Sherlock Holmes style. Borrrring! I gave up after 2 hrs because I figured if I couldn't get into the story by then it was a lost cause. Run from Justice Hall!

    "It's just long, long, long and slow, slow, slow"

    As well as being slow, it stretches the reader's credibility to the breaking point. Would two upperclass Englishmen really be able to pass themselves off as fierce Bedouin warriors? And would the two people who spent a good bit of time with them while they were in their nomadic roles fail to recognize them in their other, upper crust, incarnation once they are back in England?

    Not believing one of the cornerstones of the plot makes the rest of the story weak, to say the least. Avoid this one, go find a REAL Sherlock Holmes mystery.

    "Unbearable!"

    I fully agree with Scott (Melrose, MA, USA) and I would add that the narrator does not help much.

    "Disappointing Sherlock Holmes"

    I always liked the stories of Holmes;but, I found this one lacking. The last 1/3rd of the book was great. The first 2/3rds wasted a lot of time going over what people wore, what Justice Hall looked liked, etc, etc. I don't need to know what kind of marble the atrium was made of and Russell not having proper attire for the country, etc. I know with an unabridged book, I should expect some lengthy yada-yada;but, this was alittle much.
