"Watson, do you believe in ghosts?" With this question, Sherlock Holmes shatters the calm of a quiet evening in their London flat and, with Dr. John Watson at his side, embarks upon a particularly strange case. Holmes has received a request for aid from Lord Charles Cary, whose family is seemingly being threatened by ghosts in and around the family manor. The manor is Torre Abbey, a twelfth-century monastery in Torquay, Devon, and it has a long history of hauntings. While skeptical of the supernatural, Holmes does believe that the Cary family is in danger-a belief which proves to be horrifyingly accurate when, shortly after they arrive at Torre Abbey, a household member dies suddenly, mysteriously, and seemingly of fright. As strange sightings and threatening apparitions become almost commonplace, Holmes must uncover the secrets of the haunted abbey and the family that lives there if he is to have any hope of protecting the living and avenging the dead. In a case that taxes his wits, and seems beyond the reach of his usual methods, Holmes must grapple with his most deadly and unforgiving foe.… (mais)

Enjoyable entry in the enormous flood of Holmes "tributes" now hitting the market (16 and counting in this series alone!). Sticks very much to the conventional Holmes model with obvious inspiration from the Hound of the Baskervilles, which is referenced often in the story. This story of a tormented Torquay family and their haunted mansion is, at times, genuinely spooky, even to the point of Holmes himself apparently conceding the possible existence of ha'nts, although we all know there will be a flesh & blood perpetrator behind it all (although we never actually meet him face to face!). A nice little romp in the truest Sherlockian tradition, lightweight but fun. Worth reading. ( )

Holmes and Watson take on the case of a haunted Abbey, the private home of the Cary family, in Torquay. Strange occurrences have the inhabitants of the house absolutely petrified for their safety. Holmes & Watson rush to Devon, and even they are mystified by some bizarre happenings -- none the least of which is murder.

This falls into the category of worst Holmes pastiches ever written. I figured out the story in no time flat, although the author kept it going on and on with needless scenes, including Watson's dreams, a seance that didn't seem to have any relevance whatsoever, and the most obvious mystery ever. If you took this book, updated the story, added a dog & set it in America, you could watch it as full-length Scooby-Doo episode.

How this book got a starred review is beyond me. Obviously I didn't like it, and I don't recommend it. ( )
