Soon more bodies appear, and Watson must discover who is the killer in the trenches. A World War I crime mystery starring Dr John Watson. Jsem zvědavá, zda se to s dalšími díly zlepší.

Potom to nabralo ako taký spád i mŕtvoly a vyšetrenia. I believe the story would have been more successful if it had been shortened by at least 100 pages but I must say if you do have enough patience to make it through the majority of the book then the end is well worth it. A aj to na podnet jeho vlastnej matky. He has had a falling out with Holmes, and despite his age, the veteran of the Afghan campaign is back in a very different sort of war. Missing his old friend and mentor, he has to engage his own little grey cells and does so in a satisfyingly roundabout way.
The face has a blue-ish tinge, the jaw is clamped shut in a terrible rictus and the eyes are almost popping out of his head, as if the man had seen unimaginable horror. However, what Watson discovers is a sophisticated killer who is instituting horrendous death on seemingly random soldiers. Sherlock Holmes pastiches seem to arrive in bunches every generation—and the recent ones move the original caped crusader in ever-stranger directions. Ryanov román s názvom Krajinou mrtvých mužů vzdáva hold nielen viktoriánskej ére, otcovi najpopulárnejšieho detektíva všetkých čias, ale aj samotnej detektívnej fikcie. Even so, the Conan Doyle estate had to give its blessing to this enterprise as Dr Watson is trademarked. This, however, is a real contender.
There are plenty of likely suspects and the war has attracted people from around the world, not all of whom are in France for idealistic reasons. Fans know when their favourite main character is not being written 'correctly. A book that ultimately had a great ending with a number of loose threads neatly drawing to a close.

A to je, zatiaľ, vyhliadka bez konkrétneho dátumu.

I was thinking about what made his novel work while others have not. The action of the book takes place to the south of Ypres in early 1916, over the course of a ten days. Overall it was an interesting read and gave another view on the horror of the trenches.
Ryan is currently working on his next novel and a variety of television projects. So it comes as a relief to read Rob Ryan's take on the genre, which is at once a throw-back and so perfectly fitting it's a wonder no one considered it before. You do not read often the name of the famous detective. Ale je tu zopár ale. Na jednej strane ako čitateľ a milovník dobrej detektívky, aj tej historickej, si uvedomujem, že isté aspekty, ktoré so sebou vojna vo všeobecnosti prináša, je potrebné rozviesť.

Surrounded by unimaginable carnage, amidst a conflict that's ripping the world apart, Watson must for once step out of the shadows and into the limelight if he's to solve the mystery behind the inexplicable deaths.

Watson is assigned to France to test out a new method of storing blood to use for emergency transfusions in battlefield conditions in World War I. Does Ryan say why he picked Watson from hundreds of secondary characters in crime or detective fiction? It did what few books have managed recently; it kept me awake well into the wee hours. Watson is in the medical tents, trying out his new miracle technique blood transfusions with citrated blood. This is one of my only minor criticisms; the other is that the action switches scene from chapter to chapter, and at 369 pages long and with 75 chapters this means each average only 5 pages, so in the space of 15 pages you might have 3 different protagonists in 3 different locations.
