The Detective, The Woman and the Silent Hive

Amy Thomas just keeps on growing. Or, before she becomes alarmed, I should say that her writing skills just keep on growing. The latest in her series of books featuring Irene Adler, Holmes and Watson is another stunning read. The narrative is stronger than ever, with shades of one of Holmes's former case handled very well. The characterisations are spot on throughout, Miss Thomas does not put a foot wrong, she is completely in control. It is appealing and involving. Alternate chapters give us the alternate viewpoints of Holmes and Irene, it works very well as it has done before for the author. The plot kicks off with the death of the bees that Irene keeps in her hives at Fulworth. An accident? A air-borne disease? Or something else entirely?

This really is a delightful read from start to finish. Amy Thomas knows her subjects well. She knows the era well. And she pleases the reader very well indeed. The best of the series so far. High standards indeed.   

The Detective The Woman and The Silent Hive is available from all good bookstores including   Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK, and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository . In ebook format it is in Amazon Kindle, Kobo, Nook and Apple iBooks (iPad/iPhone).
