Who is Sherlock Holmes?

We are 40 years into the future, and London is a city in decay. John Watson has returned from medical service in the war in Afghanistan and lives by himself in a run-down part of ​town. On his way home from work, he stumbles upon a beaten man in the street – unconscious and completely naked. His chances of survival are minimal.

The same evening, a passenger plane crashes in Richmond Park. There are several hundred victims, and Watson and the mysterious man are left to their own devices.

When the man wakes up the following day, he has no memory of who he is or where he came from but reveals excellent detection skills. This is the start of a mystery that unravels rapidly with one burning question at its core.

Can he solve the mystery of himself?

The Red Circle, the first instalment in the upcoming trilogy Becoming Sherlock by international bestseller Anthony Horowitz (known for Midsomer murders, Foyle's war, Alex Rider, and Hawthorne) and Sarah J. Naughton. Story development by Søren Vestergaard.

I love Sherlock Holmes so completely enjoyed it. I liked how the authors cleverly updated it to the 21st century along with setting the stage on how the characters become involved with each other. Very enjoyable. I can't wait for the next book.

Excellent and entertaining listen! Being a Sherlock Holmes fan and not knowing how he actually got started in the detective business with very little background on his younger years, this book really set the tone and believability in his past life-story. The characters were well developed and interesting to learn about and the narrator was absolutely fabulous! I can't wait for a sequel to be released.

Fun steampunk take on Sherlock Holmes set in London in the near future. Interesting twist on the backstory of Holmes, with Watson a full character. Highly recommend.

There are so many Sherlock ‘universes’ it’s beginning to feel like Spider-Man . I’m in two minds whether it’s right to recreate from these classics but I can’t deny Horowitz has done a fantastic job as usual and this is a thoroughly good listen with excellent narration.

Very entertaining. I liked the tie in references with Arthur Conan Doyle’s work and look forward to more. I liked the period setting and foresee a Netflix series. Dan
