Book Reviews: Dr Jekyll & Mr Holmes +Sherlock Holmes and the Hentzau Affair

Dr Jekyll & Mr Holmes by Loren D. Estleman

Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson get drawn into the case of respectable Dr Jekyll and his connection to the violent and depraved Mr Hyde. The duo investigates Mr Hyde and many questions are raised about identity, repression and secrets. It all comes together during a final confrontation. This is good, a nice tale of repression and its consequences.

Sherlock Holmes and the Hentzau Affair by David Stuart Davies

Sherlock Holmes and the ever faithful Watson get caught up in intrigue and skulduggery in Ruritania. A conniving royal relative, a royal double, a doe eyed Queen and an incapacitated King lead to swordplay, identity switching and adventure. This is a short but rousing adventure and it’s good.
