Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

This affectionate parody sees the great Victorian detective transplanted to the modern day and investigating the disappearance of the captain of Manchester United. How will he and his sidekick cope with a grumpy Scots manager, a mini-skirted WAG, a gay midfielder and a landlady who insists on fusion cuisine?

Gridknightt

An author's lazy approach at writing a story: Plagiarism is the "wrongful appropriation" and "purloining and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions," and the representation of them as one's own original work. Sherlock HOLMES - Sherman HOMESDr. WATSON - Dr. WILSONMrs. HUDSON - Mrs. HOUSTONEnglish Detective mystery... Big thumbs down.


Mozzy

An enjoyable parody which surely begs a sequel.


Lee Ashford

Cleverly faithful to the original AC Doyle Sherlock's, with some expected confusion on the part of "Holms" due to his relocation 100 years into the future. Good use of humor, poking fun at Holms and Watson's individual quirks. Enjoyable read for Sherlock fans and normal people!
