Review by

This is one of the better Sherlock Holmes pastiches, of which there are hundreds. The giant rat is a case mentioned by the original author, Doyle, but never written up for publication. Author Boyer picks up the topic and creates a credible account of the story. It is a good, quick read with the requisite character detail for Holmes and Watson and worthy of any Holmes fan.
