As a long-time admirer of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective,
Sherlock Holmes, Hugh has often wanted to complete the canon of the
stories by writing the stories which are tantalizingly mentioned in
passing by Watson, but never published. His latest offering of three
such stories brings Sherlock Holmes to life again, with one reviewer
remarking that “my beloved Sherlock was portrayed with great skill”, and
other that “Ashton nails the mannerisms of both Holmes and Watson to a
tee as well as weaving a mystery that rivals that of, dare I say it? Sir
Arthur Conan Doyle, himself”.
More Sherlock Holmes stories
from the same source are definitely on the cards, as Hugh continues to
recreate 221B Baker Street from the relatively exotic location of
Kamakura, Japan, a little south of Tokyo.
