    1. just because someone chooses to write about Holmes, doesn't mean they do it well. the author relies a lot upon adverbs, e.g."Whatever do you mean?" I ejaculated excitedly."The game's afoot," Holmes replied automatically. OK, that's not really part of the book, because i'm too lazy to walk over and pick it up to quote from it, but it's certainly representative of his style. When compared with Laurie R. King's Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series, it pales in comparison. I checked this out from the [...]


    2. This is a pretty, although unusual good pastiche. I am tempted to give it a full "4.0" (and by the time I complete this I may adjust that score.) It is a very focused story; what one might call a "locked room" type of mystery. The author has tackled the characters of Holmes and Watson in a way that definitely made it harder for him to satisfy those who enjoy the tales. And for that reason, I believe that having less "comfort" (like a familiar glove on your hand) in this story may be a necessary [...]


    3. Condition: Used - Very GoodSold by: prouk2 £0.32The writing style is rather limp and the opening crime was of peurile construct. I shall give a little more of my time after my bath to see if the major crime come up to scratchA - erm no, duh-doe.


    4. It's Christmas in London, 1902. The mutilated corpse of a priest is discovered in a London church, the site of a gathering of the world's religious leaders. Holmes,both Sherlock and Mycroft, along with Watson, converge on the scene to discover the killer before he can strike again. A young Father Brown is also on the scene, serving as a translator for a bishop. It's an all-male cast with the exception of two young damsels in distress. Lots of red herrings. An entertaining read.


    5. Really enjoyed this story. Kendrick did a great job with both Sherlock and Father Brown. Was completely entertained.


    6. Good attempt, and I thought Father Brown was done pretty well (though I've read less Father Brown than Sherlock Holmes), but I was not convinced that the style was a good imitation of Conan Doyle's. More contractions than I think would be common for the period, and in any case, too many adverbs (and adjectives) and too much "was" kept pulling me out of the narrative.


    7. What would happen if the immortal detectives, Sherlock Holmes and Father Brown met with a brutal murder to solve? This is the fascinating question posed by Rev. Stephen Kendrick's 2001 Book, Night Watch. The plot of the story is that Sherlock's Holmes' brother, Mycroft, the British's government's most indispensible man as Sherlock Holmes described him, calls his younger brother in to investigate a murder. The rector of an Anglican Church is found dead in his church, with his body mutilated. The [...]


    8. This book is almost worth reading just for the premise. But I did not find it to be a particularly good mystery--e.g it violates some of the canons of mystery literature, like concealing key clues from the reader until the end. It also is mostly missing the interesting philosophical or theological reflections that Father Brown's stories are known for. And, in the end, it just was not as absorbing a mystery as the usual Holmes stories, or the better pastiches. On the whole, not bad, but did not l [...]


    9. I got about halfway through this, and I kept picking at the details of it. The idea is that a murder has been committed at a secret gathering of representatives of a variety of faiths in London in 1902. Holmes is called in by his brother to investigate, and a very young Father Brown is there, acting as interpreter for the Vatican’s representative. I can deal with the interfaith conference being heavy on the Christians (three out of seven) because, in that time and place, it would be, but… Wh [...]


    10. The capture of the Holmes character is weak, Watson is barely there, Mycroft doesn't come close to the Doyle version (Father Brown barely makes a bumbling appearance). Okay but does it stand up as a mystery? Not really -- it is a feeble version of a locked room mystery. Sure, you probably will not be able to guess who did it, but you might not really care that much either. It is obvious once the main story gets going (the preamble story is just dumb) that one of the clerics is not what he seems [...]


    11. I thought this was a very well written Sherlock Holmes pastiche. I was a little put out at first by the thought that it was written by a Unitarian Church minister, thinking that it would be preachy and have a sentimental Holmes pondering his religious beliefs. But that ended up not being the case at all.Representatives of the world's religions are drawn together for a conference when one of the hosts is found murdered. In a closed conference, only one of the attendees could be guilty. Due to pol [...]


    12. Bleah! Remind me to stick to books by professional authors. This steaming pile gets worse as you plow through it. Our heroes get picked up in a Morris limousine in 1902. Nope.Author/editor don't know "lead" from "led".There are several occurrences of inappropriate hyphens where the text has presumably been reformatted from another version,Holmes is uninspiring. Brown is dull. The various religious folks are cardboard. The plot is flimsy, and the final reveal from Brown to Holmes is the sort of t [...]


    13. Well, I suppose it might rank a little higher than two out of five. Its depiction of Fr. Brown--as well as that of the ominous interior of a church entombing a murdered man and multiple suspects--is excellent. But where it loses its edge is in its portrayal Holmes--too soft by half, unable to catch the canon balance of pure intellectual asperity and humanity; and it loses THAT balance in its too blunt authorial agenda. Kendrick wants to pull out the mystery, he wants to pull out a dogmatic claim [...]


    14. If you are looking for a comic-book knockabout tale from the tradition that gave us "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" and "Dracula Meets Frankenstein", this may be the book for you. But that is as far as this book goes in terms of style or authenticity. It is filled with anachronisms, Americanisms and schoolboy errors (a train from Oxford to London would arrive at Paddington Station, not Euston, to give but one example). It is wholly unconvincing in its stated aim of being a "long-lost sto [...]


    15. Leading representatives of different faiths meet secretly in 1902 London to discuss a parliament of world religions. When the Anglican clergyman who is host of the gathering is found dead, Mycroft Holmes enlists is brother Sherlock to find the murderer--and quickly, before political implications rock the government. Among the attendees is an Italian cardinal, escorted by his translator and aide, Father Paul Brown. Holmes solves the mystery--or does he? A follow0-up visit from Brown throws an ent [...]


    16. What a total waste of 8 months. Ha, not really, but it took me that long to finish this book. When you only read a few pages a day, time adds up. It was mildly interesting up until the end. Then it went lame and begged to be put out of its misery. Thankfully, the author ended its sad little life. The major AHA! was so convoluted that I had to wonder if Kendrick had a list of murderers/motives, put them in a jar and then reached in and picked one when he got to the part where mysteries usually do [...]


    17. As a long time fan of Sherlock Holmes and a new fan of Father Brown, I was excited to find a book that merged both detectives into one story. What a great idea! Unfortunately, although the mystery is fairly interesting, neither Holmes nor Father Brown really shine. Holmes is much too simplistic with very little depth and Father Brown mostly puts in just a cameo appearance here and there until the last couple of pages. Just OK.


    18. 3.5 Imagine Christmas 1902. Religious enclave of world leaders. There is a horrible murder. Father Brown finds the body. Sherlock Holmes is called in to solve it. Written in the style of Arthur Conan Doyle. Enjoy the twists and turns.


    19. I enjoyed this one. A group of religious leaders are meeting in London for an interfaith conference when the host is brutally murdered. The meeting of Sherlock Holmes and Father Brown sounds odd, but it works pretty well given the setting. Better than some of the other "Holmes" books I've read.


    20. Meh. It was mostly Watson and Sherlock with only a little of Father Brown. The pace of the writing was kind of slow for the story, which takes place in a single night. I guess I expected too much from the author. No one is going to match Chesterton's masterful prose or Doyle's antiquated charm.


    21. I love Father Brown and can't get enough of Sherlock Holmes, so I am hoping this combination is a great one. This was very good. It was quited interesting. Although it did not have the complete sound of a Holmes mystery, it was close enough.



    22. The author did a nice job with Father Brown, but was weaker with Holmes and especially with Mycroft. So-so.


    23. One of the most enjoyable non-Doyle Sherlock stories I've ever run across. I would happily pick up another similarly-styled book by Kendrick.



    24. Good attempt at a Sherlock Holmes story, but like most of these books, the author never nails Holmes like Doyle did. Kendrick's Holmes doesn't come to life.



    25. Sherlock Holmes meets Father Brown! The diminutive priest doesn't play as visible a role as does his more well-known counterpart, but he does outdo Holmes when the mystery is unravelled.


    26. Holmes & Watson, with the assistance of Father Brown, solve the murder the churchman Father Appel.


    27. A terrible effrontery to the power of Holmes! Only read this book if you like seeing Holmes be wrong!
