The Perils of Sherlock Holmes: Short Stories

The Perils of Sherlock Holmes (Loren Estleman)

Written in the style of Sir Arthur Conon Doyle, Loren Estleman brings new short stories that are quick and fun to read.  Estleman is I’m nearly through all in only a few days. The book could be read in it’s entirety in a day if I jumped into it.  I like to use these short stories when I’m waiting for my son at school or piano practice.

 

Chandler (works of Raymond Chandler)

I’ve only just begun this collection of works by Chandler.  I recently read the Library of America collection of Dashiell Hammett and found the old detective style is fun reading.  These stories are much more realistic than the Sherlock Holmes type of stories.

Stories inside include: The Lady in the Lake, The little Sister, The long Goodbye, Playback and others with some essays and letter for good measure.

The Innocent (David Baldacci)

I haven’t started this one yet.  It’s waiting for me on the night stand.  I’ve read a few other Baldacci books and liked them so we’ll see.

Description:

America has enemies — ruthless people that the police, the FBI, even the military can’t stop. That’s when the U.S. government calls on Will Robie, a stone-cold hitman who never questions orders and always nails his target.

But Will Robie may have just made the first — and last — mistake of his career.

UPDATE:  Always current reading

  1. I have just started reading Sherlock Holmes, so far I’m loving it, his character is so funny. Raymond Chandler, The Little Sister is a really good book.

  2. Thanks Victoriah4rt, I’m looking forward to The Little Sister.Its’ next up after The Lady in the lake. Sherlock Holmes isn’t very realistic but always fun to read no matter who writes the stories although Doyle is best I think.

  3. That is a refenece book that is always current. But good point as I currently have and I actually don’t have a fly tying guide but rather L.L. Bean’s Ultimaete Book of Fly Fishing. I’ll see if I can add to the post.
