The best thing about this one is that the author has caught the authentic Watson voice. I enjoyed the first two-thirds of the book -- the beginning in London and the long sea trip to Sumatra. I thought the ending somewhat of a let down; I expected more after the long build-up. And then the romantic entanglements for both Watson and Holmes seemed out of character. Overall, though, an interesting read.
