{Kregel Blog Tour} The Reichenbach Problem (Reichenbach Trilogy) by Martin Allison Booth

Book Description:  Arthur Conan Doyle is on the run from his own fame. Taking a much-needed holiday, Doyle escapes to a picturesque village in Switzerland nestled beneath the imposing Reichenbach Falls. There he hopes to find anonymity, but even in this beautiful rural setting, peace eludes him when he finds himself immediately recognized and involved in the investigation of a mysterious death of a fellow traveler.
All too soon, Doyle’s somewhat unwilling, gentle probing into the case causes the finger of suspicion to turn towards him. But can the creator of the famous detective actually do the sleuthing himself? As Doyle learns more and more about the famous character he penned, he finds he is less like Sherlock and more like his sidekick, Watson. Can the “sidekick” see enough of the picture to solve the case for once?

My Thoughts:   This is the first book in a trilogy.  The Reichenbach 

Problem by Martin Allison Booth is written in the first person and that 

first person is Sir Conan Doyle, himself.  (You know, the Sir Conan Doyle

 who wrote Sherlock Holmes).

 The story begins with Conan Doyle and his "dysfunction" with people.  
Dysfunction as in tired. . . got to get out of town, away from the masses!

He decides to flee to the peaceful village in the mountains that houses
 Reichenbach Falls.  Hence, this mystery becomes the Reichenbach 

 The trouble in this peaceful retreat all begins when Peter Brown is found killed...dead!  As is the case of a brilliant detective, Conan Doyle finds his mind drawn to the mystery of Peter's death.  Lo and behold, if your mind
 is on the case it is only natural that your body will follow along, too.  Now 
Conan Doyle is "on the case."

 However, events make a turn around and the villagers begin thinking
 and pointing an accusing finger at Conan Doyle.  Why?  What is this 
supreme mystery that surrounds this Peter Brown?

 A well written and quite interesting mystery.  And it's Sir Conan Doyle in 
the frying pan this time not Sherlock Holmes!

 This is a must read for all Sherlock Holmes fans!
