Sherlock Holmes: The Ultimate Satyr Collection by Pennie Mae Cartawick contains ten of the author’s Sherlock short stories. There are some very good stories in this collection. In each episode, Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson are pitted against seemingly insurmountable odds as they unravel murders, robberies and other crimes that baffle local authorities. Situated in various locales around the globe, Holmes and Watson combine forces to solve crime after crime, even though the good doctor generally has no idea what transpired. In this collection, you will find murder most foul, theft, robbery, forgery, lies, deceit, espionage, and plain old vanilla chicanery. You will encounter rare, ancient, authentic and inestimably valuable artifacts and antiques. You will come across missing persons, ghosts and, apparently, a living skeleton. You will even dodge a murderous turtle. You will not be bored.

Sherlock Holmes: The Ultimate Satyr Collection is an illustrious addition to the Sherlock Holmes collective, crafted by many authors hoping to emulate Sherlock’s creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. These ten stories are creative, original and well-concocted. Cartawick has an admirable talent for devising authentic-feeling mysteries, worthy of the name “Sherlock Holmes.” These stories are unpredictable, with seemingly innocuous clues providing the linchpin Holmes needs to deduce a solution, much like Doyle’s own approach. Even the photographs and graphic images in this collection are above average. Cartawick is a name Sherlock Holmes fans will want to commit to memory, to ensure they do not miss a single upcoming episode. The Ultimate Satyr Collection is as good as it gets, outside of Doyle’s own work.
