A rollicking good time with a classic mystery character - Sherlock Holmes. My book Murder in the Vatican: The Church Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes can be purchased via Amazon.com, Ignatius.com, or wessexpress.com Check out the image link in my sig line for more details. If you buy a copy let me know and I'll send you a signed book plate to put inside the book.

You also get to see Doom's debut as a Sherlock Holmes character.....now WHO could possibly resist that?

I think I could name something that tops it.

Ann I got the book and the signed book plate. Thanks for sending that to me! I have to resist reading the book before giving it to my mom! I don't want it all "used" looking. :)

Hi Ann,

I recently purchased this book from Ignatius Press, and I just finished reading it. Nice job! I really enjoyed it. I also found that it got better as it went along -- I liked the last story the best, and the middle story second best.

I have read many of Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes novels and short stories, though I last read them many years ago. Now I am wanting to get out my old Sherlock Holmes books and read them again.

I am sure it must be much harder to write a well-established character created by someone else than to write an original character, because people will be critical if the character is not true to the original stories. Based on what I remember from Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, I think you did a great job. Not to mention that writing a first-person account in the words of Pope Leo XIII must have been a challenge, but again it was done very well.

Thanks for what I'm sure was much hard work on this book.

Paul

My new Kindle is here!

I looked up your novel on Amazon and was disappointed to see it's not available as an eBook. Any plans to make it one?
