I finished another book! However, this one is not on my INALJ “To Read” list. It’s more of a personal selection.
Len Bailey’s Sherlock Holmes and the Needle’s Eye is a great book of mysteries with a twist! This book was given to me by the BookSneeze book review program; however, that does not affect my views on the book, and this review is of my honest opinion. Bailey’s stories begin with a device called the Needle’s Eye, which takes the infamous detective Sherlock Holmes and his trusty companion Dr. Watson back in time to Biblical times and locations. The book is well written and consists of 10 mysteries to be solved, each prompted by an anonymous source sending a calling card to Holmes and Watson. Each of these stories is designed to be read as stories or as devotionals. There is a journal section in the back, where you might reflect on what you have learned in the tales of Holmes, Watson, and even Mrs. Hudson! For the sake of time, I chose to read them as stories; however, I appreciate them as devotionals as well because it did encourage me to think more thoroughly upon Biblical stories I have been told throughout my childhood. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars and would recommend this to anyone in need of a good mystery!
