Latest Reviews of Art in the Blood

"Bonnie MacBird's Art in the Blood is a stylish leap on to the Holmes bandwagon, taking its cue from the original Sherlock's comment, "Art in the blood is liable to take the strangest forms". MacBird has a long Hollywood career in screenwriting, but plunges with brio into 19th-century Europe...Nicely imitated Sherlockiana..." - The Independent  Read more  

"In ART IN THE BLOOD, a fast-paced, page-turner, MacBird has captured the tone and style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's immortal sleuth perfectly. This book has everything - a missing child, rival detectives, stolen art and, of course, murders. (Art in the Blood) is an excellent adventure for both Holmes fans and anyone who enjoys a rousing, good story." - The Huffington Post Read more
"In a world with more than its share of Sherlock Holmes Pastiches, it is rare for one to soar above the rest, but Bonnie MacBird's ART IN THE BLOOD achieves this singular feat and deserves a tip of the deerstalker." - Otto Penzler, proprietor and editor of
The Big Book of Sherlock Holmes Stories, esteemed Sherlockian, and member of the BSI. 

"...a thoroughly entertaining Sherlock Holmes adventure worthy of Doyle himself...(with) vivid period detail, a superb, labyrinthine plot, snappy pacing and, most importantly, a deep respect for the classic characters." - Bryan Cogman, Co-Producer/Writer, HBO's Game of Thrones
