The Cotswolds Werewolf is a collection of stories by Peter K Andersson. I was intrigued by the title as my last two books feature the Cotswolds and I was eager to see a Holmes story set in that beautiful area of England. The Cotswolds Werewolf is the lead-off story and is very well constructed with nice, very nice pacing and with nice philosophical asides for Holmes to get his teeth into. Which is just as well as Homes is suffering from what may be termed depression  and the countryside is not able to
rouse hi from his ennui but a spot of sheep murdering does the trick. There are some lovely eccentrics who people this tale and the author keeps  a tight hold on the proceeding while staying true to the Holmes and Watson we know and love. The accompanying shorter stories again display the author's grip on all things Holmesian. The Adventure of the Velvet Lampshade is particularly effective with a fabulous twist. In many respects, it is perhaps the best story in the collection, it is difficult to fault it. But the other stories all have their quirks and foibles and come recommended as a worthy addition to anyone's Holmesian library.

The Cotswolds Werewolf and other Stories of Sherlock Holmes 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 KindleKobo, Nook and Apple iBooks (iPad/iPhone).
