Just finished the first of my post-holidays books, The Hound of the D’Urbervilles by Kim Newman.
The book was pretty good, and something I’d definitely recommend for people interested in either a general expansion of the world of Sherlock Holmes or about Moriarty and Moran in particular. It also references several other authors and works (including Star Trek. I’m not joking, it’s in an endnote) which is something that always gives me a thrill :-D
I’d say my favourite chapters were probably “The Red Planet League” and “The Greek Invertebrate” (I don’t want to spoil the last one but a certain Moriarty detail quite amused me), but the final chapter really pulled me in and honestly had me at the edge of my seat in anticipation. This book definitely gets my vote of approval.
