    1. Another book in the ever expanding Holmes genre.As usual something that happens in the past comes back to bite someone who has evolved out of the situation.Holmes to the rescueGood read


    2. Despite being hamstrung by a dreadful comic-book style cover design this was an enjoyable read. The Watsonian voice rings true, as does a lengthy testimony by way of exposition. The story relies a touch too heavily on coincidence for my taste — the more so since the author has Holmes condemning coincidence twice, but that's only a minor cavil on a well researched and lovingly-crafted tale.


    3. Another Great sherlock holmes mystery books! I really enjoy this further adventures series written by various authors. This one was well done!


    4. Nice Holmes pastiche, reads well and good afternoon read. My only complaint I worked out very quickly who was at the heart of the crime, my deductive talents must be improving!


    5. As the Further Adventures of Sherlock Homes series goes, this is a good one. Liked the story of two boys grown into men while in the British transportation prison system.


    6. There were times as I read this book when I honestly thought, "have I read this book before?" It matches Doyle's style so well, I could have mistaken it for an original Sherlock adventure. Would definitely recommend.


    7. As a massive Sherlock Holmes fan I always enter into reading a parody with a certain amount of trepidation. It seems when it comes to Sherlock parodies few are written well. This novel, more of a short story considering how many pages there are, is a bit of a mixed bag with regards the quality of writing. Dr. Watson’s narrative mimics Doyle’s very well, but the mystery itself is too simple and barely stretches the worlds most famous consulting detective. There are too many occasions when it [...]


    8. Wow, was this quick. I couldn't believe that I was about halfway through at my first status update. The backstory was brilliant and it really rang with ACD-canon, at least the sort of case that Watson would have written about. Along with that, Holmes and Watson were wonderfully in character. The mystery itself was very good and I sort of saw it coming who the Man From Hell would be, but I was still slightly surprised based off the narrative in the will. I'm really glad I read this and I'm defini [...]


    9. This is a very solid Holmes addition. The historical elements of the penal system are very interesting and tie into the mystery very well. Many won't realize the horrors of the British penal system which are highlighted here. Overall, the style and tone is fairly similar to Doyle's and it is a quick read. It also heavily borrows from A Study in Scarlet in that it has a story within a story involving a backstory of some of the characters. The plot also borrows a decent bit from Sign of the Four.


    10. Now, I love Sherlock Holmes and even some of the'New Holmes' novels, but this seemed a lack-luster effort at best. The Watsonian voice was pretty much in tack, but Holmes seemed a little bumbling and like he missed obvious facts. We all want Holmes to be three steps ahead of the criminals, but that really wasn't the case here. Also, way too much of this story was told by lengthy flash-back, something effectively used in 'A Study in Scarlet', but a cheap imitation here.


    11. I liked this take on Sherlock Holmes, though not as much as the Anthony Horowitz novel that I recently read. It was a good mystery though and Roberts' echoed Conan Doyle's voice reasonably well. I attempted to read a couple of others with the "The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" moniker and was disappointed (these are by different authors). Not everyone can do the detective justice - this novel manages to.


    12. A middling S.H. pastiche. The book is mostly worth a read due to its description of the U.K. version of the Devil's Island transportation-prisons. The "System" first transported convicts to the Americas, and later to Australia and other islands in the South Pacific. So -- some good history intertwined with a decent, well-paced Holmes mystery.


    13. Again, interesting read - though for those that are triggered by the subject matter there is discussion and mentions of children being used for sex several times in this book. A more satisfying ending than previously read "The Further Adventures of" books.


    14. A nicely done plot, but Holmes really didn't discover that much on his own. A good deal of the story is from a letter from the deceased to his son, and a lot of the rest is fairly easily guessed at. Some loose ends left about, as well. So untidy. Tsk, tsk.


    15. Not a bad read (actually a very interesting book), but clearly not one of the books of the Canon. Holmes lacks the cleverness of his other inquiries. Still, the bits about Australia are very interesting.


    16. It was an alright read. Interesting enough case and much more in the style of Conan Doyle than some other pastiches I've read, but it just wasn't good or quite engaging enough for me. No real reason other than that. Just shows that writing style isn't everything.


    17. EXCELLENTI could have been reading Conan Doyle! It's well written with a great plot. My only complaint was I felt that the reading of the papers left by the first Lord Backwater dragged a bit.


    18. A very good Sherlockian tale, definitely recommended to those interested in further adventures of Sherlock Holmes. The writing is quite solid and the story flows quite well, reminiscent of stories like "The Valley of Fear".



    19. Another nice offering from Barrie Roberts. Very much in the Conan Doyle look-and-feel tradition. A very enjoyable read.


    20. Having been a fan of Sherlock Holmes for many years, I can honestly say that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle would never have written drivel like this.


    21. Excellent Holmes mystery written in a voice so similar to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's that any fan of the original will not fail to enjoy this new adventure.




    22. A murder, ex-cons, corrupt officials, a penal colony, kidnapping, a mysterious millionaire and a secret society. It makes for a nice Holmes pastiche.




    23. More of a 3.5 stars. I enjoy Barrie Roberts' Holmes stories. This one is in the middle of the pack for him though.
