Sherlock Holmes and Watson Time Travel to Solve Biblical Mysteries

If you love mysteries and Sherlock Holmes, this is a great read. The author has done an excellent job of giving the book the feel of the Sherlock Holmes collection. I loved it.

After a three week disappearance, Watson finds Sherlock Holmes on an unused paddle steamer. At the request of a mysterious client, he has constructed a time machine; the plans for which he pilfered from Moriarty. In addition to commissioning the building of the time machine, the client gives them Biblical
mysteries to solve. Usually these require the sleuths to appear in other lands and other times, sometimes dressed as natives, sometimes a Londoners.

The Biblical puzzles are all fascinating. The author has done a considerable amount of research and all his facts seem to be accurate. I enjoyed each one, although some, like “The Hanging Man” were particularly well done.

I highly recommend this book, if you're a Sherlock fan. I think the mysteries can be enjoyed by both believers and non-believers for the sheer fun of the stories.

I reviewed this book for the Thomas Nelson Booksneeze Program.
