This week, my teaser is from The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz. I was ecstatic when I found out Arthur Conan Doyle's estate had allowed a Sherlock Holmes novel by someone other than Doyle to be written, because I'm a big fan of the original stories. I'm 70 pages in right now and Horowitz seems to be living up to Doyle's style, and the voice of John H. Watson, very well.
Holmes slept in late the next morning and I was sitting on my own, reading The Martyrdom of Man, by Winwood Reade, a book that he had recommended to me on more than one occasion but which, I confess, I had found heavy going. I could see, however, why the author had appealed to my friend with his hatred of 'idleness and stupidity', his reverence for 'the divine intellect', his suggestion that 'It is the nature of man to reason from himself outwards.'
Are there any other Sherlock Holmes fans out there?
What are you reading now? Have you got a teaser from it?
