The Sherlock Holmes Bookshop at 222 Baker Street, New London, Massachusetts is once again open for business in The Sign of Four Spirits, the ninth book in the series. Gemma, the co-owner, is wrangled into attending a seance, where someone is killed in plain sight when all the lights are off. Was it one of the guests? Or could it have been a ghost from the medium’s past?
Usually, these books showcase one of Arthur Conan Doyle’s well-known stories. However, this time it is his hobby, or maybe his obsession, of spirituality in the forefront. While it is a unique point-of-view, I don’t like it as much as the rest of the books in the series. Still, The Sign of Four Spirits is a fun read, if you just want an amusing, unchallenging, read. 4 stars!
Thanks to Crooked Lane Books and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
