The Science of Sherlock Holmes

This book has been around for a while now but like others covered in this blog it has been attacked for its readability. Some people have criticised it for not flowing very well for example.

 
This is an unreasonable criticism as this is a reference work that I don't believe is really designed to be bed time reading. Yes it can seem a little disjointed at times but that is a criticism that has been thrown at my own books.

What this book really is is a reference work covering the emerging science of forensics at the time of Sherlock Holmes and Conan Doyle. Treat it as such as you'll have a good time with it.
