Then there is the clever fiction weaved by master story teller, Val Andrews in which he yet again proves, as Sherlock Holmes stated, that 'It may seem to point very straight to one thing, but if you shift your own point of view a little, you may find it pointing in an equally uncompromising manner to something entirely different'.

Sherlock Holmes and the Mistery of Osborne House is a good variation of the Professor Layton formula. The graphic is well drawn, but the complete lack of animations is quite sad. The puzzles are good and often complex enough, but every single mini-game is too much classic to create some problem to the genre lovers. Sherlock Holmes has many elements in common with professor Layton, but the poor quality of the puzzles and of the story makes it a worse game than the Level 5 masterpiece.

Stories are good, but Watson doesn't quite come across as the Watson of Doyle. One error in this tale is Holmes distain for dogs. (Except for bloodhounds). Not only is this not in line with the nondescript but excellent tracking dog employed in one of the Doyle tales, but by 1900 the Ghent police dogs were well known. As these are the same type still used in police and military of today, including tracking and scent detection, Holmes would certainly have known of them and appreciated their usefulness, even if not employing one himself.

aargh. If the author would stick to one plot instead of trying to do so much in the short amount of space he has, I'd be grateful. The main plot of this novel was good -- Sherlock Holmes is called upon by a stage magician who had the honor of performing for his majesty King Edward VII at Sandringham House. While there, a theft of a valuable Rembrandt painting occurred, and even though the magician has been cleared of the theft, he worries that his reputation will suffer if word gets out. So he asks Holmes & Watson to help him. The magician has been invited to return to Sandringham House to once again perform, and wants Holmes & Watson to accompany him & investigate the theft. Now that is a good plot, but instead of trying to flesh that out somewhat, we have two other plot lines that muddy what could have been a good story. -sigh-

If you're planning on trying this as your first Holmes pastiche, don't. Try some others, then come back around to this one -- it's not as enjoyable as others I've read.

To recover the painting and save his residence is a story woven together with imagination and good storytelling. An enjoyable read.

I have been a fan of Sherlock Holmes for over half a century now, and this book is one of the better non-Canonical works I have read.

I've read only a few of Val Andrew's books but I've enjoyed them all, especially this one. Well done! An enjoyable read!

A great addition to the Sherlock Holmes tradition. Was Conan Doyle revived?
Sherlock Holmes and the Sandringham House Mystery by Val Andrews

The year is 1902. ‘Horace Goldin, “The Whirlwind of Wizardry,” has come to 221B with a problem. Recently, Goldin has been honored with a command performance to King Edward given at Sandringham House.

The affair went off without a hitch, but upon returning from Sandringham, Goldin has been notified that a Rembrandt has been stolen and replaced with a not too good forgery. The Kings servants are above suspicion and all the guests of noble birth. Even Kaiser Wilhelm, who is King Edward’s cousin, is thought to be above suspicion.

Lestrade thus feels that the guilty party has to lie among the performers of Goldin’s company. The fact that one woman is a quick-sketch artist adds to this suspicion. Yet unknown to the performers, their bags were searched before they were allowed to leave. No trace of the painting could be found.

Now Goldin is required for a repeat performance at Sandringham House. He will take Holmes and Watson along disguised as magician’s helpers.

Yet very soon it is Sherlock Holmes himself that turns up missing! Lestrade and Watson must pull out all of the stops to find the great detective before it is too late!

I liked this one. It isn’t the best of Val Andrews’ Holmes essays, but it does have its moments. I will give it three stars.
