About this title

Synopsis:

The legendary detective investigates the real secrets motivating the Phantom of the Opera, when the managers of the Paris Opera House seek help with their difficult tenant.

From Library Journal:

When a beloved fictional character is given new life, it is a treat; when two fictional creations are successfully combined, it is a rare pleasure. In this lively yet respectful pastiche, the Phantom created by Gaston Leroux comes up against Arthur Conan Doyle's remarkable detective, who has been engaged by the managers of the Paris Opera to thwart the Phantom's blackmail scheme. Siciliano (Blood Feud, Windsor, 1993) has invented several memorable supporting characters, including a beautiful but nearly blind pianist and a Watson substitute whose patience with Holmes's eccentricities is only slightly greater than that of the good doctor. The story itself takes the elements of Leroux's romantic novel and preserves characters, plot, and setting, making the most of the many cellars and mysterious passages under the Opera itself. The tone is Holmesian to the last detail, with the reader swept along to a satisfying ending. A fine addition to the Holmes canon, a summertime winner, and, one hopes, the start of a series. [In Nicholas Meyer's The Canary Trainer, Prepub Alert, LJ 5/15/93, Holmes also encounters the Phantom of the Opera.-Ed.]-Elsa Pendleton, Boeing Computer Support Svcs., Ridgecrest, Cal.
