    Well I've had reason to call out puzzle books linking themselves to Sherlock Holmes with very spurious connections before now, so it's great to see a book that really tries to grab the nettle and run with it through the Conan Doyle canon and see how far it can get. Starting with 'The Mazarin Stone' and going through five further short story narratives (that have been suitably tweaked a little) we get an introductory paragraph about the story, and a map we're supposed to follow en route through t Well I've had reason to call out puzzle books linking themselves to Sherlock Holmes with very spurious connections before now, so it's great to see a book that really tries to grab the nettle and run with it through the Conan Doyle canon and see how far it can get. Starting with 'The Mazarin Stone' and going through five further short story narratives (that have been suitably tweaked a little) we get an introductory paragraph about the story, and a map we're supposed to follow en route through the chapter. This flicking to and fro really kills this as a digital entity, or it did for me, but the puzzles are easy enough to see, being on a strictly one-a-page arrangement. And they're suitably old-fashioned, although a good mix of the old types and the new. We get half a dozen silhouettes with a tiny difference each time to spot, grids to fill in, logical/IQ number tests to work round, copious word games, and so on. Now there may well be a reason for the map being the contents page if you like for each group of tests, but the instructions for our moving around it also can be retconned into being a clue for the puzzle we're supposed to solve first (ie we're supposed to work out a playing card value, then do something numerically to that value – which limits the possibilities for the card in the first place, etc). So I'm not really on board with this idea, when the only benefit is that we are supposed to be limited in our progress, with both our way through the book and the stories being rationed. But as I say I am definitely on board with the spread of puzzles; some of them are welcome guests from the traditional monthly puzzle book's selection, but many are a different take on the visual spot-the-difference/incongruity kind, many have more to them that first appears the case, and many will involve quite a lot of doodling, scratching around and working out. Yes, a great majority could still be presented without the Holmesian window dressing, but the vintage feel to our challenges are very much in keeping with the characters, meaning this is very much the real thing where these books are concerned. A cerebral success, and a strong four stars.

    My thanks to netgalley for the opportunity to read this ahead of publication. This is a different kind of book for me to read and review. Not a novel or a textbook. Instead it is a puzzle book featuring Sherlock Holmes and Watson. The puzzles all interweave both within the chapter and revealing an overall message. They don't run in order either; the answer to each puzzle provides a clue that points to where to go next.

It's still possible to just solve the pages in order but that ruins part of the overall puzzle. The puzzles themselves vary, and if you read it on a screen or a loaned book you're likely to need a fair bit of paper. Some can be solved fairly quickly and others need a bit more deduction. The answers are at the back of the book if you need them. I enjoyed the variety of the puzzles and they will pass a good bit of time to work through. The illustrations are colourful and fit well with the story. My one downside is it's unlikely anyone will go through it more than once, like most puzzle books I suppose. You don't need to like, or even know, Sherlock Holmes to enjoy this book, but I'd recommend borrowing it or refraining from writing in it so you can pass it on afterwards.

    I truly enjoy the Sherlock Holmes Puzzle Books, this one included. This one is much more adult-focused, however, because it requires the reader to multitask on each of the 24 puzzles in each of the 6 sections. These puzzles are multi-step puzzles and include a section with a map that leads you to the next location on the search for solutions to the mysterious.

You are not just solving ciphers and cryptograms, but, rather, doing that and reading a map, finding words to crosswords, deciphering a word puzzle, and more at the same time. I loved how this one made you think more, it wasn't just a simple, "solve puzzle A and move to puzzle B, then puzzle C, etc." This book is the perfect thing to pass the time with. If you are someone who enjoys progressive puzzles and puzzles that require different types of thinking: this is for you. I highly recommend this to all my puzzle lovers and, if you find yourself on a long flight, this will certainly help pass the time pleasurably.

    This title consists of six sections or stories based on works by Doyle and the puzzles that go along with them. Each chapter contains twenty-four puzzles and a map challenge. The author notes that the book is not strictly chronological and that becomes clear as a reader interacts with it. The puzzles are varied, intriguing and not always easy. Readers who enjoy puzzles and challenges may want to add this volume to their collection. Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title.

    Fun, fun, fun !!!! This is the best way to describe this book. There are six chapters/sections with a wide variety of puzzles. Often, the solution of one leads to a clue in the next puzzle. I've never really done this type of book before. The pairing with Sherlock Holmes was perfect for me. The protected PDF was a little sluggish, so I will be getting the paper copy for my Holmes collection. A great way to spend the hours on a snowy afternoon! Thanks to NetGalley for a copy.

    This book was fun. Great for anyone who likes puzzles and solving mysteries. Some puzzles were quite easy but there are some that take longer to decipher, so definitely for the older kids or a family game night. The only down side is that it’s not so easy to navigate in digital form. I would recommend this book to anyone who, like me, loves puzzles or anyone who loves Sherlock Holmes. Thank you to Quarto Publishing Group for this advanced copy.

    I really like the look of this book! I haven’t tried all of the puzzles yet but I can imagine they will all be interesting and challenging. I love everything Sherlock and think this would make a great gift for anyone else who does too.
