The house of silk : a Sherlock Holmes novel
House of Silk is a good addition to the Sherlock Holmes mystique. Dr. Watson is as always, Sherlock’s faithful amanuensis. The House of Silk is a criminal enterprise which has its evil tentacles in the most unusual places. The whole trail begins when a client attempts to engage Sherlock in a case. The whole novel is a case of double crosses and false leads. Mycroft, Sherlock’s brother, who never stirs from his chair due to his corpulence, makes a guest appearance at Baker Street, to issue a warning to his brother, a warning which Sherlock disregards in a most blatant way. Sherlock is, as always, several steps ahead of the criminals and at the end of the novel, whatever remains, however improbable, is the solution. This book was very entertaining and demonstrated Anthony Horowitz’s understanding of Sherlock Holmes/Dr. Watson functionality. An excellent read for a wintery evening , when night is closing in and mimics England’s weather scene.
