The Reichenbach Problem
Martin Allison Both

"I was still not quite sure when, exactly, my disinclination toward people began. I know, though that it had a great deal to do with the bane of my life - the great Mr. Sherlock Holmes"

Conan Doyle is on the run from his own fame, and the impact it has had on his life. Having fled to a peaceful village among the mountains that house the Reichenbach Falls, he hopes to find the anonymity  that he needs to decide the destiny of his most popular creation. Yet peace eludes him as he finds himself drawn into the mystery surrounding the death of a fellow tourist. 

Who killed Peter Brown? What does the local priest know that he's not saying? What effect is Holmes having on Hoyle's psychological state, and its malignant? Soon he finds the finger of suspicion is pointing at him as the locals unite behind the troubled Holloway who believes he is the embodiments of Sherlock Holmes...

My Thoughts

The characters are already developed in your mind when a writer decided to use an already famous person, but that doesn't take away in the least from the mystery. reminding me of Dead Men Kill The Reichenbach Problem is a murder mystery with a huge plot twist, that you won't see coming. This is a great book to read at home on a rainy day
