Reviewed by Herbert White - June 22, 2009

Sherlock Holmes lives again in three new stories by Gary Lovisi. Written in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes mysteries, these stories have the same feel and resonance of Doyle's work. They also feature many of the same characters that populated Doyle's stories, such as the eminent Dr. Watson, Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard, and even Mycroft Holmes makes an appearance.

Although this book is titled, Sherlock Holmes and the Crosby Murders it is really a collection of three distinct Sherlock Holmes stories. They are: Without a doubt, Gary Lovisi has read his Sherlock Holmes! He has done a fantastic job of mimicking Doyle's writing style and has captured the true essence of Holmes and his compatriots. In addition, Lovisi has crafted rather decent mysteries, to boot. If you are a Sherlock Holmes fan and thought that you had read all there is to read about this dynamic detective, you were wrong! Check out Sherlock Holmes and the Crosby Murders, I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how close to Doyle's writing these stories are, and at the quality of Lovisi's mysteries are equally good. In short, this is a great collection of mysteries that are enhanced by being cast in the visage of classic Sherlock Holmes stories. I highly recommend these stories to all fans of Sherlock Holmes and the mystery genre!
