The second in a highly original and absolutely marvelous series about two brother lawyers who lease offices on London's Baker Street--and begin receiving mail addressed to Sherlock Holmes

When brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath choose 221B Baker Street as the location for their law office, they don't expect that their new office space would come with one huge stipulation, answering the letters sent to Sherlock Holmes, the most famous resident of that address.

Reggie is distressed because the love of his life, actress Laura Rankin (whom Nigel also adores), is gallivanting around with media mogul Lord Buxton. And while Reggie is working on a new case involving one of London's Black Cab drivers who is accused of murdering two American tourists, the letters to Sherlock Holmes are piling up. There s even one from someone who claims to be the descendent of Professor James Moriarty.

With a case that would have puzzled even Sherlock himself and a pair of brother sleuths more different than night and day, The Brothers of Baker Street is sure to please mystery fans whatever their address.

A good active/at times frenetic who-done-it but, I agree, not as well put together as the first. I do enjoy the premise and will continue reading this series.

As is so often the case, the second book does not measure up to the first. I greatly enjoyed Baker Street letters but this story fell a bit short. It started out good but the Last 50 pages things became a bit much.
I realize you have to make some allowances to reality for a story but there are limits. I'll give the author one more chance and see what the next book is like.

A very good book. I would recommend this book for all to read.

Too many painful American-thinks-this-is-what-English-people-say-and-do bits to be enjoyable.

This is the rare instance where the 2nd book is better than the 1st.
