    I have to confess that I always wanted to be as brilliant as Sherlock Holmes The way he could put observations together always made me so envious of him I wanted to have the same mental capacity The mystery in this book was uite interesting and almost seemed unsolvable as most Holmes mysteries areLike all Sherlock Holmes stories there are subtle clues that are placed throughout the novel so the reader can try to figure out how the murder occurred and who the killer is Unfortunately I couldn't figure this one out at all A positive aspect of this book is that the language and atmosphere seemed relatively accurate but unfortunately the novel was missing the original spark that Arthur Conan Doyle's works had The clues almost seemed too subtle and the end result was almost completely out of left fieldThis book was good for what it was but unfortunately at parts I thought it was trying too hard to match the originals However I still found it enjoyableI received this book through the GoodReads FirstReads program

    Since watching the recent Sherlock Holmes movies I have been wanting to read some of the books So when I won this book in the Goodreads giveaway I was excited to finally follow Holmes and Watson on another crime solving adventure This book did not disappoint I have not read other Sherlock Holmes books to compare this one too but it was a captivating read I could visualize the inspector as he tried to solve the mystery of the murdered prison guards I also appreciated the humor that was laced in I hope that J Andrew Taylor continues to release Sherlock Holmes books In compliance with FTC guidelines I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads

    This one was ok Unless the book is really bad doesn't stay true to characters crime solution London of the day Mrs Hudson or whatever is included I'll like the book This book stayed true to what's important about Holmes and WatsonI enjoyed that it was a little complicated that some of the pastiches The hot air balloon and the gas theft was unusual and interesting I enjoyed Watson as than Holmes' shadow; he as a doctor was important to the case in examining the boy and the pub owner gave him importance in following his adviceNice touch for Holmes to see to the woodsman's reward

    Element in deedSherlock Holmes and the Element of Surprise by J Andrew TaylorHolmes has been missing for a fortnight Lestrade is beside himself as there have been two murders with elements of the impossibleTwo guards from the prison of Wormwood Scrubs have been discovered minus their heads in the snow However; there are no tracks in the snow except their own and the people who discovered the bodies Holmes returns as suddenly as he vanished Now Watson Lestrade and Holmes travel to the Wormwood Scrubs area to view the crime scenes Possible SpoilersIt is as it has been reported The tracks show that the attack could not have came from any of the four directions; North East South or West The attack could not have come from beneath When the impossible is eliminated whatever remains however improbable must be true The attack had to come from the airThere were witnesses to the crimes even though they saw or heard strange things The little girl of the giant woodsman who found one body heard “fairy voices” in the sky above her and the sound of their wings He dog also reacted to these “fairies” which means there was something thereThe son of the local innkeeper was out getting drunk with his buddies when they saw a “flying elephant” go silently overhead blotting out the stars for a moment Strange as it may be; Holmes believes them since the attacks had to come from the air And a prisoner at Wormwoods scrubs now claims he is not himselfThis was a fair story and the solution will make Holmes have to believe in something that as far as he knows doesn’t exist This is the days before aircraft Hot air balloons do exist but the lack of a light in the sky makes that so unlikely What killed the men with decapitations so clean that they could have been guillotined? I like this one but it does lack a little depth Four starsuoth the Raven

    Sherlock Holmes and the element of surprise was a wonderful uick read The mystery matched my view of Sherlock Holmes I really enjoyed the feel of England in the early 1900's The mystery kept me on my toes and although I figured out some of it the end had many surprises I would really recommend this book for teens and adults

    Not a bad little Sherlock Holmes pastiche to pass the timeInteresting plot and most importantly for me the friendship between Holmes and Watson was solid and in characterRecommended to all Sherlockians
