It is 1890. A year after Holmes's death, Watson--now in a retirement home--narrates a tale of Sherlockian detection that could tear apart the very fabric of society. The story opens with a train robbery in Boston, and moves to the innocuous setting of Wimbledon.

(The first book in the Sherlock Holmes series)

As a fan of Sherlock Holmes, I couldn't wait to read this title. It did not disappoint. Read by Derek Jacobi, it's a wonderful modern rendition of a Holmes story. The seedy side of the Victorian underworld is explored and exposed and a satisfying result is had at the end. Well done, Anthony Horowitz!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book while listening to the book on CD. The book is about corruption and murder in London. I recommend ‘The House of Silk’ to mature teenagers and adult readers but due to some of the issues exposed in this book I do not recommend it for readers under 17 years of age. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.

I heard a rumor, I’m not sure where, that Conan Doyle’s estate chose Horowitz to write this story. And he more than does justice to his task. What a fantastic story! Though Watson is given to a little more exposition than usual (on and on and on sometimes), the overall plot more than makes up for his occasional droning. I’m not a devout “canon only” Sherlock fan, so this seems to be a perfect further adventure. And listening to Derek Jacobi was a terrific plus.
