The Sight they'll pursue a criminal genius who'll lure them into a Sherlockian maze of clues and evidence The team also have their own demons to fight They've been to Hell and back literally but now the unit is falling apa. A series of murders mirror the London killings in the Holmes stories Plus in a London where ghosts speak to the city's memory than the facts of history Holmes' phantom has itself been found dead And the small fraying police team who deal with the metropolis' supernatural side need to solve the crimes despite not even being sure what it means to murder a ghost It's a brilliant set up for a procedural horror but I didn't find this Shadow Police novel as satisfying as its two predecessors Partly that's deliberate as the coppers note many of the mainstays of Holmesian detection are bunkum once you eliminate the impossible there are still lots of possible answers mostly incorrect And in this haunted London how can they even be sure what's impossible But at times the degree to which the team's efforts feel futile starts to get a bit much and one particular blind alley feels too reminiscent of a similar trick in the previous volume Yes they're dark books in which evil is ascendant partial victories come at terrible cost and London has become one colossal trap But in a detective story I still need some sense that in some tiny way the detective is achieving somethingBeyond the central plot though I was much engaged The three versions of Sherlock all being filmed at the same time and their respective stars are disguised than eg Neil Gaiman in The Severed Streets yet still recognisable enough for Cornell to make some salient points about the current appetite for reboots and familiar franchises The ongoing story of the team's efforts to work out what became of their predecessors and how occult London works provides some satisfactory answers while still leaving sufficient mysteries for subseuent volumes And the leads their interactions and their separate crosses to bear are still emphatically characters I want to follow even when their case sometimes feels as frustratingly unending and hydra headed as real work

Who Killed Sherlock Holmes Shadow Police #3But what's the motive And who or what could kill a ghostWhen policing London's supernatural underworld eliminating the impossible is not an option DI James uill and his detectives have learnt this the hard way Gifted with. This is a dnf for me at 20% in My fault for not realising that it's #3 in a series before I started reading it There is a lot of referral to previous events so it's not flowing well at the moment Other GR friends have read and enjoyed the series so I will have to reserve judgement for now until I've read books 1 and 2 before trying this again So no stars yet
