Anomalous by Samuel Williams Jr is an engrossing read, pacy, exciting and full of details that add rather than detract from the story and riveting characters such as Jack Johnson the heavyweight boxing champion and a certain Al Capone. The plot itself is involving, well-worked out and always captures both the imagination and attention. The major players are exremely well-portrayed and their dialogue is always, always convincing. A big plus, and it's not always so with pastiches, is how well Samuel captures the characters of Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, the author knows his men, knows his canon and it shows. They are spot on in looks, character and voices, not always an easy thing to achieve by any means. The transition from 1912 America to 1913 England is seamless. Jack Johnson pulled no punches and neither does Samuel Williams inspired debut.
Anomalous – The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes is available from bookstores including in the USA Barnes and Noble and Amazon, in the UK Waterstones Amazon and Book Depository(free worldwide delivery) and in electronic formats – iTunes(iPad), KindleNook and Kobo.
