Read full description of the books:
The book is a collection of lost Sherlock Holmes stories from the ubiquitous deed boxes of Doctor Watson, presented in a fine hardback with period typography and excellent illustrations in the Paget style.
The first story clears up the matter of the Giant Rat of Sumatra (of ill repute) in an engaging and believable account that ends with a twist that is very much of the period.
The settings of the stories are pleasantly varied, as are the antagonists - my favourite is Prince Peter Kropotkin whose hauteur is very well realised in the illustration by Chris Coady that accompanies the story.
In so many collections of pastiches, illustrations, when they are included, seem rather pointless - I confess myself guilty on that count. In The Lost Stories, the very professional illustrations add a great deal of interest to the stories.
The dialogue is authentic and well-balanced between characters - Watson gets his due for once.
I enjoyed the book very much and I would recommend anyone with a Sherlockian bent to give Mr Reynold's work a try.
