Sherlockian Fan Fiction

I’m on my quest to read classic mystery and suspense novels, the ones that have withstood the test of time. I’ve always been hesitant to read “spin-offs” of the great Sherlock Holmes. Seriously, no one can write a classic mystery better than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Review: The White City

Based on the mystery surrounding one of America’s notorious killers, this story inserts you into Chicago, 1893, at the time of the World’s Fair. Winnifred Wylde witnesses a kidnapping in the wake of several women missing, the only problem is that no one believes her because she’s “cried wolf” one too many times with her overactive imagination.
