I think it was very interesting and entertaining, not a great work of literature, but a damned good read. I do agree it was derivative of the Sherlock Holmes books, but if an author keeps the pages turning I don't care if he cribs from another author.

It is similar (but superior to) a lot of the "Sherlock Holmes" books that are being written by authors, I think it is called a "pastiche" or something like that.

There was a really good one I read, called "The List of 7" if I remember correctly, maybe four years ago. I like the "Sherlock Holmes" style books and see no reason for authors to discontinue writing them just because the original author is long dead.
