Excellent historical mysteriesReviewed in the United States on 16 March 2018
Nine delightful, cerebral mysteries which have much more in common with Sherlock Holmes than with Mike Hammer. Unlike the Holmes stories, some of these are fairly ordinary instances of Dr. Johnson helping people who ask. He has not set himself up as a professional detective. The stories are related by James Boswell, the real life biographer of Dr. Samuel Johnson. Some are based upon actual events with Johnson and Boswell added by literary license. In all of the stories the language and surroundings ring true to the period. Well done!

Eighteenth century mysteries solved by Dr. Johnson and BoswellReviewed in the United States on 6 April 2018
I had read most if not all of these stories years before in EQMM. Have always liked how the author merged fact with fiction- the engaged reader will find plenty to Google in these stories!
Pleasure to read.Reviewed in the United States on 18 November 2018
Very entertaining, well written, and clever cases. 18th century style and details consisted well done.
Good, not great.Reviewed in the United States on 27 January 2019
It’s been interesting, but the dialogue is difficult to get through. However, you can get the gist of it as you read.
