Setting: America, late 1800s and early 1900s
The Sherlock Holmes books by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle contain many American characters. In fact, Doyle was an enthusiastic admirer of the United States and made four visits to our shores. This volume brings together a collection of new short stories written by contemporary American mystery writers. In these stories, Holmes and Watson solve mysteries in locations from New York and Vermont to Texas and California and everywhere in between. Among the famous Americans they meet are Theodore Roosevelt, Wyatt Earp, Harry Houdini and Buffalo Bill Cody. In “The Flowers of Utah,” Robert Pohle has Holmes and Watson discovering Lucy Ferrier Hope, wife of Jefferson Hope, the American from Utah who was apprehended in “A Study in Scarlet.”
If you are a Holmes fan and can accept that he has strayed from his Baker Street digs, I’m sure you will find many stories to enjoy in this volume.
