Sherlock Holmes

The Army of Doctor Moreau

Following the trail of several corpses seemingly killed by wild animals, Holmes and Watson stumble upon the experiments of Doctor Moreau. Determined to prove Darwin's evolutionary theories, through vivisection and crude genetic engineering Moreau is creating animal hybrids. In his laboratory, Moreau is building an army of 'beast men'...
Portrait

Guy Adams trained and worked as an actor for twelve years before becoming a full-time writer. He is the co-author of The Case Notes of Sherlock Holmes, has written several tie-ins to the TV series Life on Mars. His most recently published novel is Restoration, the follow-up to the much-praised horror novel, The World House.

Zitat
"Adams tells a great story, period." "This is a thriller, both of crime and horror. Trying to limit yourself to "just one more chapter" is as much a challenge as Holmes trying to survive his trial with this mad scientist."

That initiative led Mycroft to the experiments of Dr. Charles Moreau, who fled England after details of his gruesome vivisections were exposed. Subsequently, reports emerged that the scientist had started anew on a remote island, where he created "absurd combinations of man and beast." Mycroft fears that the resultant creatures may be connected with a series of savage deaths near Rotherhithe, which appear to be the work of mysterious animals. Despite an over-the-top ending, Adams' obvious affection for the characters will leaving more traditional Sherlockians hoping he'll uses his gifts at recreating them in a less-fantastic narrative. Even so, Adam's decision to let the long-suffering and snarky Watson vent some frustration will delight fans of the series." - "Publishers Weekly " "The mystery is engaging and the characters are enigmatic enough that I didn't want to put the story down." - "DNM Magazine ""well written and pays great homage to the characters borrowed from lite
