Review by: Darcee on April 30, 2015 :
Author Craig Stephen Copland once again surprised me with this fast action pastiche book, celebrating Sherlock Holmes. The Sacred Tooth of the Buddha has been guarded and worshiped for 1500 years in Kandy. For the first time, it has been brought to London and will be displayed in the British Museum exhibit. Miss Morstan comes to London to hire Sherlock Holmes, in hopes of finding the man who killed her father and his good friend. Both of them were actively involved in the historical research of the Sacred Tooth. There must be some significance in their shared knowledge of this ancient treasure, and Sherlock Holmes would have to unravel the mysteries. Totally in control and not perturbed at all by Holmes’ gruff and impatient manner, Miss Morstan seems to be winning the heart of Dr. John Watson.

Mr. Copland doesn’t skimp on the mystery or surprises, and has a way of blending together historical facts with fictional characters, and leaving the reader wondering if Sherlock Holmes was indeed real.
