The Disappearance of Sherlock Holmes, by Larry Millet

This marks another turn at Millet's rich addition to the Holmes canon - this one spanning a wide variety of locales, from England to a variety of U.S. locations. No end of historical details, braided together with Millet's inventions, lead to a non-stop adventure. As a "local", that is, someone who lives in the St. Paul area, where Millet has focussed these tales, these books have a lot of appeal - but they deserve to be enjoyed and recognized wherever Holmes fans are - I'm curious to see if they are well received elsewhere.
