Book Review: Sherlock Holmes and The Shadwell Shadows

The Cthulhu Casebooks: Sherlock Holmes and The Shadwell Shadows by James Lovegrove
A potent and injurious threat is a malign menace to England. It is up to Sherlock Holmes and his sidekick Dr Watson to make fighting eldritch forces a chic lifestyle trend. This was a good alternative take on the famous duo. Though Sherlock Holmes as an occult detective is something only to be tolerated in small doses.

Best Lines:
“You were heard to utter dire prophecies of doom against me and attribute malfeasance on my part.”

“Is to risk provoking my ire.”

“He also mumbled something ominous-sounding and apocalyptic.”

“An unrecorded, unremembered language.”

“This course you have embarked upon will lead only to your ruin,”

“Guards his possessions so jealously that he has not set foot outside his property in more than twenty years.”

“A stranger to manual labour in all its forms,”

“For civilisation rests on the assumption that the universe is kindly disposed toward mankind and intended for our benefit.”
