No, not Sherlock Hemlock (although I love him too), but Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s masterful detective, Sherlock Holmes. Orion Publishing Group has announced that Anthony Horowitz, author of the Alex Rider series and the BBC series “Midsomer Murders” and “Foyle’s War,” has been chosen to bring Holmes back to literary life.
Horowitz has said he will try to “produce a first rate mystery for a modern audience while remaining absolutely true to the spirit of the original.” According to the Vancouver Sun, this is the first time Doyle’s estate has approved a new Sherlock Holmes story. It is due to be published in England this September, and I for one will be on the lookout for it’s arrival in the US!
