New review for The Norwood Author

I quote parts of a recent review...

Biographies are tricky things. It's difficult to write a compelling one--one where the reader doesn't walk away feeling like they heard the information before; that what they just read wasn't repackaged and repurposed from some other source. And when your subject is one of the most written about men who ever lived... well, then the task of presenting something new and unique grows even more difficult.

So what higher compliment can I pay to Alistair Duncan's latest outing, "The Norwood Author," than to say that I *learned*? ...

...And, as a result, the picture of Conan Doyle's life grows a litte clearer, a little more crisp around the edges, a little more complete.
