A review in the District Messenger, the official newsletter of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London.

Sherlock Holmes in Japan by Vasudev Murthy , writing as Akira Yamashita (HarperCollins Publishers India; www.harpercollins.co.in ; 350.00 rupees) also has a foreword by Calvert Markham. In June 1893 Dr Watson receives an envelope from Japan. Inside are a first class ticket from Liverpool to Yokohama and a note in a familiar hand: ‘Watson, I need you. My violin, please. S.H.’ Before the ship reaches Alexandria, a quiet, scholarly Japanese passenger is murdered, and shortly Watson learns that his friend is a fellow-passenger – and they are both in deadly danger. Moriarty survived the fight at Reichenbach and knows that only Holmes can thwart his plans to destroy international diplomacy and flood the world with opium. The novel is a cracking good read, witty, learned and desperately exciting.
