Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Christmas 1887. With his mother and father away on a European tour, young Winston Churchill, now thirteen years of age, spends his Christmas holidays with Holmes and Watson. Young Winston is a lively addition to the household, but Watson cannot help thinking that a cuckoo has landed in the nest at 221B. Holmes places a reliance upon the boy that appears quite unfair. He gives the boy tasks that would previously have fallen to Watson's lot. A boy of thirteen can hardly be expected to bring to a problem the expertise and sagacity of a seasoned professional or can he? Perhaps it is time for Winston to spend more time with his brother and his nanny. Young Churchill assists Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson as they trace the missing Apostles' papers, expose the mad doctor of Hammersmith and track the Giant Moles of Paradol Hall in Herefordshire.

Un imbroglio où les affaires familiales croisent les complots qui pourraient avoir une répercussion internationale. De nouveaux moyens de locomotions, la démonstration que la fin du monde n'est sans doute pas programmée, et le plus cher ennemi de Sherlock qui est tapi à proximité. Watson est en proie à de nombreux dilemmes. Winston entraine son esprit de déduction sous la coupe bienveillante de notre célèbre détective. Quelques personnages hauts en couleur complètent le trio. Un plaisir dont il ne faut pas se priver.
J'ai entendu dire qu'une tentative de traduction en français de cette série est en cours... pour ceux qui éprouvent quelques difficultés avec la langue anglaise.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Oh, yeah! The fun is back! 21 avril 2013

Not that the fun went away entirely: author Mike Hogan has also published several short pastiches between the publication of the second book in the "Young Winston" series and the appearance of this one, so at least I was able to see more of Hogan's take on Holmes and Watson. However, the "Young Winston" series has a charm all its own and I'm happy to see that the third (perhaps final, but perhaps not) book is here.

It is now Christmas, 1887, approximately six months after the events of Sherlock Holmes and Young Winston - The Jubilee Plot. Young Winston's parents are getting ready to leave on a tour of Russia over the Christmas holidays, so the boy comes back to 221B and eagerly involves himself in several new cases that Holmes and Watson have picked up: one revolving around some missing papers with potentially distressing political ramifications; one involving a doctor who may be committing women to an insane asylum for his own contemptible reasons; and one regarding threats to the life of Stamford, Holmes and Watson's old friend who introduced them seven years earlier. As often happens in these Young Winston books, the three cases turn out to be not entirely independent of one other.

One of these cases is Mike Hogan's take on the "untold tale" of the Paradol Chamber, mentioned briefly in passing by Watson during the telling of "The Five Orange Pips." Stamford comes to Holmes and Watson when his life is threatened. After inheriting his father's real estate business, Stamford realizes that Paradol Hall, one of the properties under his company's stewardship, has been leased out with no evidence of payment. When he looks into it, there is a sudden attempt on his life. While Holmes goes off to look into the Paradol Hall case, Watson and young Winston stay behind for an upcoming consultation with Miss Elizabeth Caspar, a character introduced in the first book of this series Sherlock Holmes and Young Winston - The Deadwood Stage. Before Miss Caspar arrives, an unexpected visitor appears at 221B needing to hire Holmes to find some papers which, if published by the popular press, would cause great embarrassment to quite a few figures high up in government. After that visitor leaves, Elizabeth Caspar arrives, bringing along a friend whose husband is trying to have her committed to an insane asylum. He is using her somewhat foolish beliefs in spiritualism as the ostensible reason, but the true reason probably has more to do with taking over her money and property. A lunacy order has already been signed, and it is probable that once she disappears into the asylum she will never come out again.

Not necessarily in this order, the story encompasses: being used as target practice while riding in a balloon during a thunderstorm at night; a long-lost treasure of gold coins; the Ark of the Covenant; Colonel Moran; Professor Moriarty; the need to solve a case in 2 hours and 40 minutes; lots of running to catch already-departing trains; a burglary; a mass escape from an insane asylum; and Watson's near-arrest for charges of assault on an elderly vicar! And as always, there is the charm of young Winston and the constant, fond bickering between Holmes and Watson.

Some things in this novel don't entirely fit the timeline of canon, but please don't let that get in the way of your enjoyment of a story that is just stellar!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Slam Dunk 4 novembre 2013
Par Drstatz - Publié sur

One small disadvantage to writing reviews for Amazon is they have a required minimum of words. It would be somewhat inappropriate to simply say, 'See what the other people said and go with it,' but that would work. Either that or typing the word 'Superb' twenty times also is an option. Mr Hogan is now in what I call my 'Slam Dunk' category. I see his name, click on the book and put it into the shopping cart. In short, I'm money in the bank.

This particular story contained the usual plot twists, turns and misdirections that assure that you will have difficulties putting it down and certainly won't guess the outcome too early on. I always enjoy Holmes stories that include his somewhat enigmatic brother mixed in withe all of the other notables of the time. Young Churchill proves himself to be a fascinating study on his own although you might raise an eyebrow at some to the truly dangerous situations he is allowed to get into. This is a great read. Over Christmas holidays I will pick an author (Last year it was Hugh Ashton), put all of his books together and read them like one giant compilation. Looks like I get to go back through Mr Hogan's books late next month.

The third in the Holmes, Watson and Young Winston series in my opinion is the best. A real rollercoaster ride of political intrigue, spiritualism, fire, theft and outrageous adventures. As with the others in this series the book wonderfully research so with all the fine detail you can totally immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the time.
At the end of the book the author hints at further books in this series if there is interest, well I for one say bring them on.

Not even close to being up to standard Sherlock Holmes standards.
