“Lovable, larcenous Jethro is a good bet to steal hearts on both sides of the Atlantic.”                                 Kirkus  (Starred Review) 

 

“Evocative and witty, with a charming rogue of a narrator.” 

                                                                      Publishers Weekly

 

“If you enjoy the adventures of Raffles, The Saint and Richard Hannay, this is for you.”                          Otto Penzler

 

“Tense ...  fascinating ...  terrific ... liberally laced with Jethro's sardonic wit.”                                             Booklist  (Starred Review)

... But the best stories focus on the universal appeal of Holmes. Tony Broadbent in "As to 'An Exact Knowledge of London'" and Neil Gaiman in "The Case of Death and Honey" both explore the tantalizing question of how Holmes manages to be both fictional and immortal.                                                 Kirkus 

 

'The Remaining Unknowns' is excellent…an edge-of-the-seat read.                                                                            BookReporter NY

“Take London atmosphere as thick as a pea-souper, a rakish Cockney cat burglar with the soul of a poet, a plot that twists and turns like the darkest of London alleys, and you have a terrific read.  Highly recommended!”                    Deborah Crombie

 

“Tony Broadbent's style glints in this darkly humorous tale played out in the stark realism of post-war London, a welcome third in this one-of-a-kind series.”                           Laurie R. King
