The House of Silk Reviewed

Telegraph Review

The House of Silk is an exciting, well-crafted novel about the great detective's tussle with a murderous homosexual ring that somehow infiltrates Holmes's band of urchins, the original Baker Street Irregulars. Strong on period detail, it weaves in familiar elements of Holmes's character, methods and relationships with Dr Watson and other figures such as Inspector Lestrade. The only thing lacking is what Vladimir Nabokov (as noted by Dirda) called shamanstvo: the enchanter-quality of Conan Doyle himself. ANDREW LYCETT
