It is July 1881, and a frantic mother comes to 221B Baker Street, begging Sherlock Holmes to find her son. A naval officer posted to HMS Dido, he was part of the Naval Brigade that joined the Natal Field Force to fight the Boers. But he did not return with his men, and is being denounced as a deserter.

So begins a twisting tale of assassination, diamond mines and military cover-ups. Can Holmes and Watson uncover the truth, a truth that threatens the very fabric of the British Empire?

A very good story

I am always very critical of stories of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson they stray to far off the canon or they are down right stupid, this one I found to be well written both of the characters were treat equally well Watson was not treated as a fool and Holmes did not display his know it all attitude as some stories tend to do so I would encourage you to read this one and avoid some of the crap that somebody just wants to make a buck

a fine and dandy addition to the Holmes oeuvre

Caveat: both authors are friends and colleagues of mine. That doesn't alter how impressed I am with how well they've at once captured the feel of a Conan Doyle story while still having a modern sensibility, particularly in the portrayal of John Watson, whose medical and military background prove useful in the unfolding of the story. It's a good mystery, with facts slowly unfolding and new revelations flowing naturally from our heroes' investigations. Holmes and Watson sound very much like themselves -- my usual acid test is whether or not I can hear Jeremy Brett and David Burke as Holmes and Watson, respectively, and I totally could here.

I love Sherlock Holmes stories and Mr. Greenberger and Mr. Savile have truly captured the wit and meticulous wisdom of Holmes and Watson.

The game is afoot, again.

A satisfying story from start to finish. Though I spent a fair chunk of time wondering where the Sorrow's Crown from the title fit in, it all came together.

I must confess that in all my years of reading ...

I must confess that in all my years of reading that this book was my first concerning Sherlock Holmes. I had always thought the books to be "old fashion" and not up to par with the current crime/mysteries cases that I have always read. I found that this book is indeed worthy of reading and by far held me in suspense with the "what's next" aspect of the book. I highly suggest reading if you are a fan of any "who done it" type mysteries.

Excellent Mystery

I love Sherlock Holmes and I love Steven Saville so how could I go wrong with this book!! Very true to the originals. I was glad to see the writing was a similar style and the characterization was in line with what I would expect from Mr. Conan Doyle himself. I enjoyed the mystery aspect as well. Very victorian mystery. I can truely say it is a mystery my mom would love which is saying alot!! I will try some of the other Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and hope they are as well represented as this one!

This was a classic Sherlock Holmes story that was a pleasure to read. The storyline involved interesting history and moved at a nice pace. I really enjoyed some of the side characters that were introduced and thought they added to the story. Nicely done!

was the wonderfully brooding, terse Jeremy Brett

The Holmes I grew up with, at least on TV, was the wonderfully brooding, terse Jeremy Brett. I wasn't to be disappointed - Holmes here is at his superior, single-minded (to the point of having no idea about a lot of current events without taking a walk around his part of London to hear the gossip), and patience-straining best.

Very enjoyable read.

I have not read much Sherlock so I cannot say if this one is in keeping with the original story. I can say, however, that I very much enjoyed this story. It makes me want to read more Sherlock.
