I just discovered these books and, quite honestly, as I read Mycroft and Sherlock, I can't put it down. To me, and I've tried to keep up with S. Holmes follow-ups for decades, this one, so far, is the absolute best. You won't regret it. Not only is the writing amazingly good but also the authors absolutely had to have done some incredible historical research. Keep 'em coming! This is an early Christmas gift I have given myself! So many passages worth reading several times, and I don't say that very often about any book.
