If you are a Sherlock fan. like me, chances are you were watching the new episode yesterday, like me. Don’t get me started on how rude it is to only provide one episode after two years of waiting (or how the series is dwelling a lot on how awesome it is). Luckily for us, there are other Sherlock Holmes stories to keep the waiting bearable.
I’ve not been a fan of all the modern Sherlock Holmes stories, but when I was reading The House of Silk I was surprised by how well it captured the characters and how much I liked the writing. This is a (too) short story intended as a promotion. And even though it was too short to give the story anything substantial going on and to be really interesting, it did remind me of how much I liked The House of Silk and that I should certainly read Moriarty soon.
I’d say, mission accomplished. The case is closed.
