Lawrence Block Books For Sale


matt-scudder-lawrence-blockWhich is your favorite Lawrence Block character?

Is it Mathew Scudder, ex-cop, reformed alcoholic and unofficial private investigator? Or perhaps you prefer John Keller, the hit man for random hire. While a bit of a loner, Keller is a nice, easy-going kind of guy, whose steady hands, cool nerves and perfectly honed professional skills, match his hobby and passion of stamp collecting. Such skills also come in handy when he is killing people.

Or you may favor gentleman thief and bookstore owner Bernie Rhodenbarr. No matter who your favorite is, since Lawrence Block is the grand master of crime, mystery and suspense novels, you have a lot to love.

By the way, you may know this author as Ben Christopher, Anne Campbell Clark, Liz Crowley, Jill Emerson, Lesley Evans, Chip Harrison, Don Holliday, Paul Kavanagh, Sheldon Lord, Andrew Shaw or John Warren Wells, too. Block is a Mystery Writers of America Grand Master, and he has won the Edgar Allan Poe (4 times) and Shamus Awards, as well as other honors in France, Germany, and Japan.

No doubt Lawrence Block is a hard working pulp crime novelist, and thankfully a very prolific writer. And here is some good news for mystery and suspense fans, Lawrence Block is resurrecting many of his early books, some written pseudonymously and now being released under his true name.

“The Adventure of the Missing Brother” by Eugene Edmund Snyder
Feb 21st, 2011 by Aldouspi


Here is the latest featured review of a Sherlock Holmes Pastiche: "The Adventure of the Missing Brother" by Eugene Edmund Snyder.

Missing Brother

Sherlock Holmes Pastiches and Reviews: 

"The Adventure of the Missing Brother" by Eugene Edmund Snyder

Reviewed By Scott Harker

Publisher: Binford & Mort, Copyright 1994, First Trade Paperback Edition.

There are many types of Sherlock Holmes pastiches. Some tell stories of the Great Detective, some deal with stories about Arthur Conan Doyle and so on. The mystery novel,"The Adventure of the Missing Brother" by Eugene Edmund Snyder falls into the pastiche category that uses Sherlock Holmes Fan Clubs as the tie-in to Sherlock Holmes.

The Story:  The 221 Club is a typical Sherlock Holmes society or fan club with monthly meetings where lectures and stories are told related to the Sherlock Holmes canon as written by Arthur Conan Doyle. Most of the members of the club are associated with the local University, being professors and the like.

After one such meeting, club members are asked to look into the apparent disappearance of the brother of a guest. Professor Lockley Soames (who takes on the Holmes mantle) and others rise to the challenge...

Has the brother been murdered? Is his disappearance related to the sudden marketing of gold coins in the area? And what of the death of the brother's dentist? All these questions and more must be answered by the 221 Club members...


The Writing:  Eugene Snyder has written several histories centered around Portland, Oregon. The Adventure of the Missing Brother appears to be his first fiction novel. The writing is competent and kept my interest to the end of the book. I did figure out the puzzle slightly ahead of the characters in the book and most readers will be able to solve things at the same pace. But this did not distract from the enjoyment of the novel.

While neither Holmes or Watson are in this book, anyone who is a member of a Sherlock Holmes club or a general fan of the Great Detective will find the ongoing Holmsian references found in the story of interest and/or amusing.

The Rating: ... I give this book 3 "Pipes." While this is not a book that you won't be able to put down once you start, it certainly is worth adding to your Sherlock Holmes collection. Pick it up the next time you are on Amazon or see it on eBay.
