High praise indeed

This is a quote from the email of a member of the SHSL upon finishing reading my draft.

"Please accept my congratulations on another admirable book! Most of us, I suspect, weren't really aware of the missing chapter in our knowledge of Arthur Conan Doyle's life. You recognised that there was a blank patch on the canvas, and you've completed the portrait. Your achievement merits the terms that Francois le Villard applied to Holmes's work - Magnifique! Coup-de-maitre! Tour-de-force!"

I am, predictably, rather pleased.
