Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and Mrs. Hudson are heading to the 1896 Olympic Games in Athens ostensibly so that Holmes can compete on behalf of Great Britain’s fencing team though in truth, the trio has been tasked with a delicate mission for the Queen. Of course things don’t go as smoothly as they had anticipated and they are forced to sort out the difficulties before the end of the ten days of the Olympiad.

If you have not read any of the previous books in this series you may be unaware of its premise. In brief, Mrs. Hudson is the brains behind Sherlock Holmes. She created London’s first consulting detective agency but understood quite clearly that a business run by a woman would not be taken seriously and that she was in need of a male figurehead. And so it was, that she advertised “rooms to let” in her lodging house and recruited Holmes and his companion, Dr. Watson as her lodgers and her figurehead for the detective agency.

The author spins a pleasing tale with the re-imagined roles of Sherlock Holmes and Mrs. Hudson.

MRS. HUDSON’S OLYMPIC TRIUMPH is an enjoyable and satisfying addition to this series.
