George Mann has Sherlock and Watson down to a “t” in this new Sherlock Holmes mystery.

A Solid Outing

George Mann is one of the many Sherlock Holmes writers whose offerings go straight into my shopping cart. This particular outing simply reinforces that this will continue. It is a solid tale with many misdirections for those who believe they can start identifying villains early on. That won't happen. I must confess that the first mention of Iron Men, I feared the story was heading into the realms of fairies, wicked queens and the like. Fortunately that didn't occur. A number of surprises presented themselves at the conclusion which, in themselves, made the book worthy of its price. A total winner and I anticipate more of Mr Mann's offerings.

The feel of a true Holmes and Watson adventure!

After reading Manns Newbury and Hobbes books which I found amazingly good, I could not resist trying his interpretation of Holmes. I found the book very intriguing. There was enough of the feel of Doyle, but a bit of steampunk to add more depth to Holmes in shall I say an alternate universe. Bainbridge was fleshed out in his younger years before Newbury and Hobbes. This is the best Holmes story I have read, outside of those written by Laurie R King. I look forward to further Holmes stories by Mann, and hope that there will be more interaction between Holmes, Watson, Bainbridge, Newbury, snd Hobbes. An excellent storu.

Great Sherlock Holmes pastiche!

"The Will of the Dead" is a very well conceived story, although intertwining the mystery of "The Iron Men" may seem a little too fantastic. The writing is rich and allows the reader to feel the victorian atmosphere and fully appreciate the main characters, faithfully depicted as we find them in Conan Doyle. A minor reservation concerning the editing, not the author: many punctuation marks are missing or misplaced.

Bought as a Gift

I bought this for my son-in-law who could not wait to view it. He was very happy to have it. He is a Legal Librarian and loves books and Blue Ray DVD's, especially this one. He shares my and his wife's (my daughter's) love of the classics. I don't have to ask him how he would rate it. But, since I don't have it to view, I gave it 5 stars since I love watching the original and this new Sherlock Holmes on PBS.

Another great Holmes novel

Enjoyed this book. Started out slow but picked up the pace. I enjoy George Mann stories especially Newberry and Hobbs so I might be prejudiced.

A missing will and iron men...
