New Sherlock Holmes Novel

This certainly sounds very promising.

Maev Kennedy reporting from The Guardian:

The House of Silk, written as tribute to Arthur Conan Doyle 81 years after his death, is narrated in first-person by Watson

The answer, Watson, is elementary. The reason Sherlock Holmes’ latest adventure, The House of Silk, is only being published 81 years after the death of his creator Arthur Conan Doyle, and 106 years after his final story about the tenant of 221B Baker Street, is that the story was simply too shocking to reveal until now.

The news in January that Anthony Horowitz – better known as a children’s author – had been commissioned to write a new Sherlock Holmes novel, was itself a literary sensation. The book, his publishers promise, is “stunning”, and the title has just been revealed for the first time.

I can’t wait!
