In the TBR pile, I think, along with another novel and a story collection by him. I might have picked this up because you mentioned it before. Can't recall, now.Robert Girardi's Madeleine's Ghost, a really effective modern tale with Southern atmosphere. Came out maybe twenty years ago, and nobody's heard of it. Unless someone proves me wrong.
Fun movie. Christopher Plummer and James Mason as Holmes and Watson respectively, and, weirdly, directed by the director of Black Christmas, Porky's and A Christmas Story, Bob Clark.Oh, movies? Murder by Decree. Holmes, the Ripper, and bad people in high places. A shaky ending, but fabulous atmosphere.
There was a third book. I'll remember it after I post, as is my tradition.
If you ever get chance, track down the movie, A Study in Terror, another Holmes/Ripper movie, also good fun, with John Neville as an effective but rather mellow Holmes.
I'd forgotten about this one. I'll have to dig it out. Thanks.The book I forgot? (See above.) Lost by Gregory Maguire. Underrated.
