A STUDY IN SHERLOCK
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Anthology
Some of the genre’s top writers, including Lee Child, S.J. Rozan, Neil Gaiman and Laura Lippman contributed stories inspired by Sherlock Holmes. While the quality is not entirely even, enough of the 16 entries are strong enough to make it more than worth your time if you have even a passing interest in the man behind the door of 221B Baker Street.
Alan Bradley’s “You’d Better Go in Disguise” features a battle of wits between two strangers on a park bench. Phillip Margolin and Jerry Margolin set up a country-house mystery in “The Adventure of the Purloined Paget.” Colin Cotterill turns in a charming illustrated tale in “The Mysterious Case of the Unwritten Short Story.” (BANTAM, Nov., 400 pp., $15.00)
