Dr. Watson brings his second wife, Juliet, to Egypt to cure her tb. He runs into Sherlock, who is looking for a missing nobleman. They join forces. In Return of the Pharoah, the game is once again afoot!
This author does the best job of the many writers trying to replicate Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The prose reads exactly like the original novels. There are a lot of obscure words and setting the scene going on, which you may or may not enjoy. The thrill of seeing Sherlock’s enormous brain solve the puzzle by deductive reason is not really evident as the mystery’s solution was easy to unravel. However, the unusual setting still made Return of the Pharoah a 4-star read for me.
Thanks to Minotaur Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
