Before Baker Street, there was Montague.
Before partnership with a former army doctor recently returned from Afghanistan, Sherlock Holmes had but the quiet company of his own great intellect. Solitary he might be but, living as he did for the thrill of the chase, it was enough.

That is, until a client arrives at his door with a desperate plea and an invitation into a world of societal scandal and stage door dandies. Thrust deep in an all-consuming role and charged with the safe-keeping of another, Holmes must own to his limits or risk danger to others besides himself in this the case of the aluminium crutch.

M.K. (author of the award-winning Bookminder series) jumps again into the world of Holmes in Sherlock Holmes & the Singular Affair, M.K.’s second Holmesian novel, coming on the heels of Sherlock Holmes & the Ripper of Whitechapel. Singular Affair begins with Holmes accepting a case from Miss Eudora Frances Clarke, a distraught Englishwoman living in India, who has exchanged letters for years with her once childhood-friend and now would-be fiancé, Tobias-Henry Price, who lives in London. A trip to England for a funeral brought hopes to Miss Clarke that she could meet up with Price and cement their future together. Yet, when Miss Clarke shows up unexpectedly at Price’s Club, a total stranger announces himself as Tobias-Henry Price, and brushes off Miss Clarke’s inquiries.
The mystery of an imposter posing as Price has Miss Clarke fearing the worst. Is the real Tobias-Henry in danger? Are his feelings for her genuine? Why is another man posing as her intended fiancé? Has she unwittingly been the victim of a Victorian-era catfishing scheme? Holmes agrees to investigate, and begins to uncover a dark secret. Adventure, danger, and intrigue ensue, as Holmes attempts to unravel the mystery of Tobias-Henry Price.
Just like Ripper, Singular Affair is written in a loving homage to the works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, is spot-on cannon accurate and approved by the Arthur Conan Doyle Estate. The work feels like a long-lost story written by Sir Arthur that remained hidden for a hundred years. Any fan of the Great Detective will love the Singular Affair, and those who have yet to meet Mr. Holmes would have the pleasure of becoming a fan by reading this fantastic addition to the Holmesian universe.

It's a quick read at 147 pages. The vernacular is much better and in keeping. Having no Watson was weird but Holmes narrating his own story was cool.
I feel this version is more like Robert Downey Juniors Holmes than Conan's Holmes. As I pictures the scenes I saw RDJ not another Holmes or even my own version.
This book will not change your life but will entertain you for a couple of hours....
