The Further Adventures of Sherlock Holmes – The White Worm

We rated this book:


Sherlock Holmes and his trusty companion, Dr. Henry Vernier, respond to the desperate entreaties of a lovesick young man who believes his burgeoning romance is threatened. As Holmes and Vernier investigate, they explore a small English town with a long history of pagan cult activity, along with more than a few eccentric denizens. Who is behind the attempts to split up Diana and Adam? And what role will the legendary White Worm play in the affairs to come?

Sam Siciliano deftly weaves together the Holmes canon and Bram Stoker’s Lair of the White Worm in this tale of love, jealousy, insanity, and giant pagan snake gods, and he makes the most of a decidedly mixed bag. Vernier proves to be an effective foil for Holmes, and the running gag where he’s mistaken for Watson is great fun. |Although the secondary cast is a little goofy for my tastes, Adam and Diana prove to be charming young characters, both certainly deserving of Holmes’s best efforts.

The White Worm may lean a bit more toward action and supposition than logic and deduction, but it remains a enjoyable and worthwhile addition to the canon.
