Sherlock Holmes and The Needle’s Eye, A Book Review

_140_245_Book.868.coverEmbark on a journey through the Old and New Testament with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson as they explore exotic and spice-laden places in search of clues.

The detective and the doctor travel back in time with the help of a Moriarty-designed time machine to investigate ten Bible destinations, unlocking clues to ten Bible mysteries. The most fascinating crime cases are those that are already solved, those that have been investigated by the police and brought to a swift, satisfying, and almost inevitable conclusion. So it is with Bible stories which the reader may consider familiar and unremarkable. But under close scrutiny these stories give up their hidden clues, their long kept secrets. Like a jewel newly polished, they sparkle and shine with a fresh, introspective light.

As a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes, I just had to read this inventive biblical crossover. This was a very interesting and unique look at some of the mysteries of the bible…many I had never even considered before. Going back in time with Holmes and Watson, I felt like I was actually present during some of the most famous biblical scenes. It was very cool to join them on their journey as they attempted to solve much different mysteries than they are typically accustomed to.

I think the author did a great job capturing the writing style and dialogue of  the famous Holmes and Watson. I found this book interesting, entertaining and intriguing. I enjoyed my Sherlock fix, while also learning some interesting things about the bible. A definite must read for the Holmes fan and biblicaly curious alike.
