THIS IS IT! The epic conclusion of the premier story arc starring Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Watson and Holmes, culturally recast as modern day, African American crime solvers. Believe the hype! When we say epic we mean epic! To save the life of the final target on a hit list, our heroes have no choice but to confront the mercenaries full on. Watson’s military training and Holmes’ brilliantly trained mind are on full display as they devise a way to stop the bad guys once and for all. It’s a nail-biter that will test the limits of their new partnership… if they survive.
This first arc has brought us into the world very nicely – we have got all the main characters on the board – Watson, Holmes, the police and the enemy (Moriarty?) A dark, well detailed series which is choc full of references!
The Holmes character is well done, as is Watson – this is a Sherlock series different to what we’ve seen before – set somewhere where it hasn’t been. The language and look may be different, but this is a good one to read!
