Thank you to Caroline at bitsaboutbooks for inviting me on this tour of the Detective, The Woman and The Pirate's bounty by Amy Thomas
I’ve always been intrigued by Sherlock Holmes and the many guises he is now portrayed and very recently read an excellent Holmes novel so when the chance to review this was offered I said yes straight away.
This is the 4th in the series by Amy Thomas, almost instantly I found my self charmed by the style of writing and knew I was going to enjoy the not to long 176 pages in front of me .
Written In the 1st person in regards to Irene Adler and 3rd person in the case of Holmes.
Our story starts with a Sheriff Morris from the USA, to whom Holmes owes a favour ,contacting Holmes, asking him to come to Florida to investigate a small island to find a mythical pirate, Joe Gaspar’s bounty.
Off set the intrepid duo aboard the ship, Princess Mary, they set about learning anything that any of the crew may know about the treasure they are off to hunt. When they reach New York they are joined by US agent Mr Jones and they set off to Florida in search of the treasure.
Sherlock and his disguise , the archetypal classic villains , and his intriguing relationship with Irene Adler , The Woman, all add the charm to this story
It’s a classically, traditionally and clearly quite lovingly written Sherlock Holmes tale.
A welcoming easy read, it’s a joy and anyone could pick this up and enjoy Sherlock. I certainly intend to read the other 3 in the series.
