About this title:

Synopsis:

The deed box of Dr. John Watson, entrusted by him over a century ago to Cox & Co. of Charing Cross, and which made its way to Hugh Ashton in Kamakura, Japan, continues to yield treasure.

The box proved to have a false bottom, under which lay the manuscript of a full-length adventure of Sherlock Holmes, in which the great detective needs all his cunning and detective powers to unravel the mysteries at Hareby Hall.

Mentioned in passing by Dr. Watson in his account of A Scandal in Bohemia, The Darlington Substitution is a tale of deceit, treachery, and murder most foul, set in the wild Border country of northern England. Holmes and Watson encounter a centuries-old legend which tells of the future extinction of an ancient noble family, and set themselves against one of the most ingenious and fiendish villains ever to cross the path of Sherlock Holmes.

Holmes and his faithful biographer come to life again in this case, following in the tradition already set in the three volumes of the "Deed Box" series of shorter Holmes adventures published by Inknbeans Press. These have been extremely favorably received by readers and reviewers, with one commenting, "I would have assumed that they were indeed previously undiscovered Doyle originals," and another, "The author has followed the approaches of the original Doyle stories to the extent that these could have been easily included in the original works".

Review:

"Gore Vidal didn't fudge things--most of the time (and when he did, he admitted it, as he noted in Lincoln or his other novels). And neither does Hugh Ashton. To join him on one of his journeys in late 19th-century Britain is to be enveloped in the smoke of the trains at King's Cross Station and to feel the atmosphere of a grand manor sitting near the harsh and cold country near the Scottish border.
But imagine the double duty of not only trying to capture an historical period, but to capture the voice of one of the most famous and influential authors in the world who wrote in that period ? And this is where Hugh's horsepower takes him swiftly past me in the race. I've had fun bringing Josephine Baker back to life, have dug through Paul Robeson's astonishingly powerful and unapologetic blasts to the Red-baiting committee in the U.S. Congress, and I've offered a friendly wave to Hugh in passing as both he and I try to re-animate the most famous Nazi leaders, each of us using them to jump-charge plots of very different books. But could I write in say, Dylan Thomas's style or pour out the lean, scaled-back prose of one of my own favourites, Erich Maria Remarque ? Not me, not brave enough. Oh, no, not a chance !
To read The Case of the Darlington Substitution is to hear Watson's voice--to rediscover Doyle's style. That's no small feat for any novelist."
