Sherlock Holmes connection is made. Prologue is boring. Then book becomes okay. Illegitimate son of Sherlock Holmes. Worst feeling cover ever! Hate the sensation of touching it.

I've read every one of John Lescroart's books and thoroughly enjoyed each one! Unfortunately this book is a sad effort at best. I bought it because of the author's name. Unfortunately at only 175 pages I believe the author (or publisher?) split this book and the 2nd Son of Holmes book into two that should've been left as one. I believe I've been taken advantage of as a fan of this author. I've had to force myself to read this book (unfinished and I've quit) and that wasn't the case for any of his earlier books. Save your money. I wish I had save the $12.99 plus tax this cost. Unfortunately, can't return it to B&N. Buyer beware.

It is hard to write a review of this book because I have read and liked almost all of John Lescroart's books. This one is not like the rest of his Dismas Hardy books and for Sherlock Holms fans, I've read quite a few of those as well, it's not like them either. It's not action packed but develops slowly. It isn't even a great mystery because any half way decient mystery fan could figure it out before the end. Why the 4 stars then? Because the book is an engrossing read and well worth the trip. For me the story became secondary to the journey the author describes. It's a good book to take on your next long trip.
