'An Exact Knowledge
Tony Broadbent rather brilliantly brings Holmes and Watson to present-day London in a quite different way from TV's Sherlock. Equally dazzling is Neil Gaiman's tale of Holmes and bees in China. There isn't a dud here. — The District Messenger (The Official newsletter of The Sherlock Holmes Society of London.)
… But the best stories focus on the universal appeal of Holmes. Tony Broadbent in "As to 'An Exact Knowledge of London'" and Neil Gaiman in "The Case of Death and Honey" both explore the tantalizing question of how Holmes manages to be both fictional and immortal. — Kirkus
Laurie R. King (The Beekeeper's Apprentice and 10 other Mary Russell novels) & Leslie S. Klinger (The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes) have not stuck to the usual suspects for this stellar anthology of new short stories that pay homage to the great detective. — Publishers Weekly

THE MYSTERY BOX
Edited by Brad Meltzer
"This all-original MWA anthology includes a nice mix of big names and rising stars among its 21 offerings, all plotted in some manner around a box (literal or metaphorical) and its contents."
– Publishers Weekly
"I will confess that I had been relatively unfamiliar with Tony Broadbent before reading his excellent "The Remaining Unknowns." I will be sure to rectify that oversight. The story involves the member of a bomb squad who is called to a particularly difficult job. As he thinks about how to save the citizens of New York, he recollects about his past and his family, even as his own life hangs in the balance. The result is an edge-of-the-seat read with a ticking clock that drowns out all else."

"Dust to dust. Ashes to ashes. Smithereens to smithereens.
Illegitimum non carborundum."
