Book Review: The Aristotelian


Fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle will find The Aristotelian a worthy successor / prequel to the Sherlock Holmes Mysteries. I was immediately charmed by the language, the vocabulary, the patterns of both narrative and dialogue, and the portrayals of the young detective and his elder brother. The mystery, too, is inspired and fully matches the style of such classics as The Red Headed League or The Adventure of the Speckled Band (two of my favourites). I fully intend to gift this story to my dad, who has long been a fan of Sherlock Holmes, and enjoy it again in future, as well as further works by the inestimable Steve Poling.
