MYCROFT AND SHERLOCK by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Released: Oct. 9, 2018

"The mystery, as so often in Conan Doyle, is less interesting than the Holmes-ian byplay. But fans will want to read this sturdy pastiche if only for the deathless query: 'Do we bring Sherlock in? Or leave him in relative ignorance until after his exams?'"

MYCROFT HOLMES by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Released: Sept. 22, 2015

"The central conceit is audacious; Mycroft's sense of moral outrage is nicely reflective of the era; the historical detail is solid; and the period decorum is well-maintained throughout. Only the characters and their cumbersome individual interactions are muffled by all the grade-A trappings."
