For Sale: Sherlock Holmes and The Menacing Moors by Allan Mitchell

A call from an old comrade has Holmes chasing a reported agent of Satan between the towering tors and bottomless bogs of Dartmoor only to find the limits of his own confidence and his Public's esteem. Only Watson stands his friend, but even his patience is stretched. Sherlock's retreat to the bees of Sussex serves only to show him that his skills are unique and are desperately needed elsewhere.

On returning to London, Holmes finds malign forces have been bringing ridicule to his doorstep. In this tale, the Great Sleuth is brought to life, uniquely, in expressive verse, a favorite form of the author who loves the language of Sherlock Holmes and the Menacing Moors.

Now a traditional Holmes story in verse . . . .

 on April 29, 2016
By Holmes Fan
I’ve never been a big fan of poetry. In high school, I tried to write my own Beowulf-like epic, but it quickly fizzled. I wrote some short poems as a joke that were published anyway in my college literary journal, which proved a point that I was trying to make at the time. The only real poems I’ve ever consistently liked are the short needle-like observations of Stephen Crane, and the masterpieces by my favorite bard of them all, William (a.k.a. “Billy”) Joel, whose intelligent presentation of the Secrets of Life helped me, from the age of fifteen onward, to understand some of the hidden maneuverings of the grown-up world, thus allowing me to bypass a lot of teenage stupidity.

Mitchell enjoins us to travel once more with Holmes and Watson to the forbidding moors of Dartmoor where yet another beast of mythic size has been wreaking havoc – the story of beast and man related in rhyming verse. Indeed, the extraordinary achievement of form risks overshadowing the story to be told. Quite simply, this reader was awed by Mitchell's ability to use an aabb rhyming structure through 120+ pages to tell his story without ever missing a beat. And there is most definitely a story to be told. And it's one that's a good deal of fun.
