This is a nice book to add to my three shelves of Sherlock Holmes books. Not the best, or the worst. Some of the adventures were very much in the old style of Canon Doyle and easily rival some of the best in my books that are collections of short stories. The stories are fairly shot, making them easy to read in one setting. The only problem I had was that some of the stories seemed out of place. Not really chronological and one wonders if the author had written these at various times for submission in various magazines. However, authors usually show in their collected short stories where they have been published elsewhere. I love Italy and didn't mind the settings, however after so many I miss England. Also Holmes doesn't succeed in every case. A couple leave the reader dangling. I had to give this a four star rating rather than a five because of the few stories that did seem out of place. I do recommend it as a good read. I can't promise to now read the first collection by the author, despite the rave reviews it received. Hopefully it is better organized.

I was hopeful for this volume, as I have Ted Riccardi's other collection of Holmes stories. Those were a bit dry, but still solid stories, told from a viewpoint other than that of Dr. Watson. This was, I felt, what redeemed the book, that you couldn't expect someone other than Watson to have the same story telling ability.

But this one is presented as being written by Watson. It doesn't come close. I have tried multiple times to finish the book, but I find it boring and tedious. It just doesn't have Watson's (Doyle's) skill. Told from a viewpoint other than Watson, you wouldn't be comparing the two while reading the stories. My advice, for what it is worth, is not to quit writing Holmes stories, just make the voice one other than Watson. It helps the reader enjoy the book.

Quoth the Raven...

This collection is pretty disappointing. The author is fairly good at matching the tone and style of the original stories, but the plots are mostly dull and Holmes' deductive reasoning powers take a back seat. Most of the stories rely on the gimmick of using historical figures as characters. Once or twice would be ok, but it gets old pretty fast without anything else to back it up.

(Minor spoilers: characters revealed, but no plot points)

Wagner, Puccini, Strauss, Liszt, Pope Leo XIII, etc... We learn that Holmes is not only friends with Marconi and Tesla, but helped them develop wireless transmission (it's a throwaway line, but really?). Already pretty tiresome, the final straw comes when Holmes and Watson attend a seance with Arthur Conan Doyle. It doesn't have anything to do with the story, it's just a big wink at the audience.

Conan Doyle was good at making Holmes seem at least vaguely plausible. This incarnation is so accomplished and omnipotent, with so many famous friends, that he loses any sense of reality. Specialized knowledge is one thing, but Holmes is able to instantly recognize class rings from Indian prep schools and identify what village an obscure kind or Italian hat is made in. Knowledge of this level is barely plausible when confined to London, but across the whole world it becomes parody.

There's potential here, but the author spends too much effort on the conceits of the Italian setting and not enough on the story elements that make Holmes stories so popular after so long.

I throughly enjoyed Mr. Riccardi's first book, The Oriental Casebook of Sherlock Holmes, and purchased this second one, Between the Thames and the Tiber: The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, with the expectation of being pleased once again. Unfortunately, such was not to be. Not only did I find this second work to be noticeably toned down, it lacked, I felt, the time and research that he had dedicated to his first book. It certainly needs to be carefully proofread, for there are several blatant errors that have been overlooked. I appreciate the effort that the author has put into writing both of these volumes and I hope there is a third one in the works, but only if its is very carefully prepared and not far-fetched. I shall be glad to proofread it before in goes to the publisher, should Mr. Riccardi so agree.
