The Mysterious Bookshop

Horowitz, Anthony - The House of Silk

Sold out.

London, Orion, 2011. First edition. One of the three best pastiches I've ever read, and maybe the best. A visitor at 221B tells Holmes that a man has followed him from Boston and is menacing his wife and him. Holmes quickly realizes there's a lot more to the story when the first brutal murder is committed, and one of the Baker Street Irregulars is found in the Thames, beaten and drowned. The suspense is palpable and the author understands both the language and the canon. One of 250 signed copies.

Specializing in Mystery Fiction and all its subgenres, including Detective, Crime, Hardboiled, Thrillers, Espionage, and Suspense.

Located at 58 Warren St in New York City, we are open Monday-Saturday from 11am-7pm.
