    1. The author has really managed to capture the mood and atmosphere of Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes. The plot lacked nothing, in my humble opinion. Excellent! Hopefully, there'll be more to come.

    2. Meraviglioso è dir poco. "I Delitti di Mayfair" è un romanzo che tiene il lettore incollato dalla prima all'ultima pagina, costringendolo a correre dietro ai personaggi, ai casi che si intrecciano l'uno con l'altro, animati dal (divertente) bisticcio di fondo tra Schermann e Holmes. La trama è molto fitta, il ritmo incalzante e nel complesso il lavoro narrativo eccellente. Gli omicidi di Mayfair, che costituiscono il caso "oggetto" del romanzo, sono relegati alle prime e alle ultime pagine, m [...]

    3. There is something comforting about reading a Sherlock Holmes mystery every now and then. This story had more than one mystery to solve so it wandered around a bit but still, old Sherlock is so crafty, thanks to Watson's observations of him. It seems we don't see the forest for the trees, but Sherlock does! Fun to read.

    4. Very HolmesianThough slow starting this was a good read with good suspense at the end. A worthwhile and enjoyable read for a autumn Sunday afternoon.

    5. Iffy at best. Though this book contains hints of Doyle, it is a bad imitation. I can't recommend this book.

    6. A good story, but a bad piece of SherlockianaThis work was a fairly good mystery, but it was one of the WORST Sherlock Holmes stories I have ever read.
