Traveling in the footsteps of Holmes

David Sinclair, journalist and Sherlock Holmes afficinado, has retraced the steps of Watson and Holmes in real life. Sinclair has spent considerable time researching and wandering to pinpoint the actual locations and buildings in the mysteries. The result is a fascinating trip through the books. My only quibble is that Sinclair treats Watson as a real person, whose accounts he is deciphering. It seemed a bit odd to me, but not in any way a major detraction.

So all you Holmes fans, check out Sherlock Holmes's London.
