In Michael Robertson's The Baker Street Translation, Reggie and Nigel Heath—brothers who lease law offices at 221B Baker Street in London, England and answer mail addressed to the location's most famous resident, Sherlock Holmes—find themselves pulled once again into a case straight out of Arthur Conan Doyle. An elderly American heiress wants to leave her entire fortune to Sherlock Holmes. A translator wants Sherlock Holmes to explain a nursery rhyme. And Robert Buxton—Reggie's rival for the love of actress Laura Rankin—has gone missing. Reggie must suss all these things out before an upcoming British royal event. If he doesn't, something very bad will happen to everyone at that event—and to Laura. Fast-paced, exciting, and clever, this is the perfect mystery for aficionados of the current craze for all things Sherlockian.
About Michael RobertsonSee more books from this Author
If you approach the book on the basis that its many absurdities are a part of the humour, it proves to be a reasonably enjoyable lightweight read. It is therefore of interest to anyone who wants to see how the Sherlock Holmes trope can be extended, and for those who want an undemanding book to read during the summer holiday period.Read Full Review of The Baker Street Translation:...
