The Holmes Affair is a brilliantly executed must-read for all admirers of historical fiction, Sherlock Holmes and intellectual mysteries. Engrossing, suspenseful and fast-paced, this debut novel manages to be both highly original as well as deeply reverential to its literary sources. It's difficult to find a new spin on Sherlock Holmes, but Graham Moore has pulled it off with flying colors' Matthew Pearl, author of The Dante Club. 'A delight, and you don't need to be a Holmes buff to enjoy it' Daily Mail. 'Clever and intriguing' Guardian. 'A must for fans of the Baker Street sleuth' Yours.
