A Rare Gem

As an author who likes to blend several genres together, I also am an avid reader of Classic Detective series such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s “Adventures of Sherlock Holmes” and Classic Horror stories such as Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” I recently finished a novel suggested to me through Goodreads.com, “Sherlock Holmes vs Dracula” by Loren D. Estleman.  I was intrigued by the title and the thought of the arch detective vs one of the most evil characters ever imagined.  I must admit as a fan of the original Sherlock Holmes series, I was skeptical about how well the two genres could be blended and still remain true to the original characters, particularly John Watson’s journalistic style.

I was pleasantly surprised by how well the author pulled it off.  A jolly good read.

Here is the the link to the book on Amazon:

Keep on Reading
