After hearing the very funny (and British) Anthony Horowitz speak at an author's luncheon here in Phoenix, I bought two of his books, one for me and one for a friend. I was first impressed that Horowitz is the creator and writer of Foyle's War and I love that series. You may be familiar with his other television creations such as Midsomer Murders and Poirot. He also writes the popular Alex Rider novels (a teenage adventure series) which didn't ring a bell with me but has sold over 12 million books worldwide. As you can see the guy is talented.
Horowitz was asked by the Arthur Conan Doyle Estate to write a new Sherlock Holmes novel. The House of Silk is fast paced and the voices of Holmes and Watson ring true. Mycroft and Lestrade are involved as is Mrs. Hudson. The plot is interesting which turns to disturbing when the real meaning of "The House of Silk" is revealed.
If you are a diehard Holmes fan, I think you will enjoy.
