Sherlock Holmes & the Singular Affair by M. K. Wiseman- Review


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.

​For a little while, at the least, 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 aluminum crutch.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.


I found Sherlock Holmes & the Singular Affair by M. K. Wiseman to be a complicated mystery. But Sherlock being Sherlock eventually figures it out. However, the initial parts were confusing to me. While this ensured that I persevered with the book and stuck with it until the mystery was resolved, it was initially difficult for me to follow along.

Wiseman included some clever twists along the way to make the plot more interesting. I found Wiseman’s style similar to that of the old era to which Holmes belonged. Overall, I liked the story.
