The Reichenbach Problem – Book Review
Attention mystery lovers! Are there any Sherlock Holmes fans in our midst? If so, you might be interested in The Reichenbach Problem – the first book in The Reichenbach Trilogy from Martin Allison Booth!
All good mysteries are full of twists and surprises. What makes The Reichenbach Problem unique is that this book isn’t really about Sherlock Holmes at all! Instead, the story is about Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – the author who created the famous detective in the late 1800s.
As the story opens, we find Conan Doyle on a train, fleeing to Switzerland. He is travelling to the peaceful village of Reichenbach Falls, where he hopes he will find respite from the unwanted fame that Sherlock Holmes has thrust upon him.
As fate would have it, Doyle’s plans are doomed from the start.
First, there is the tag-along tourist who follows Doyle from the train to the town. Then, there is the tourist that turns up dead shortly after Doyle’s arrival. Of course, Doyle’s identity precedes him, and he is expected to help with the investigation, even though he isn’t really a detective – he just writes about one in real life!
It turns out luck is not with Doyle on this trip. Before long, Doyle himself is considered a prime suspect in the murder!
The Reichenbach Problem is a story with a clever premise. While the plot is not fast-paced by any means, the author paints an interesting character profile of the author behind one of the most renowned detectives in the literary world.
If you are a fan of the series, you are most likely to appreciate this book!
