Rating: 4 out of 5

It’s been a while since I read one of these Mrs Hudson and Sherlock Holmes stories but I remembered what I enjoyed about them a soon as I’d finished chapter one. Mrs Hudson is an excellent character full of resourcefulness. Flotsam, as her assistant, is learning all of the time both the art of service and the art of detecting. Sherlock and Dr Watson are well portrayed. I enjoy the traditional viewpoint being turned on its head.
