The BookViral Review:

A sophisticated story with plenty of bite Song For Someone proves an elegant read with the twists and turns of Sherrinford’s narrative keeping her readers on their toes until the very end.

The reason many Sherlock Holmes-inspired novels fail, at least as often as they succeed, is because more effort and attention is lavished upon the concept of Holmes than the bones of a good plot and here Sherrinford breaks the Sherlock Holmes mould by imbuing Song For Someone with a pleasingly contemporary feel to give us a fresh look at an iconic character.

This is made possible by the introduction of Irene Adler and it’s through her burgeoning relationship with Holmes that Sherrinford does so much more than simply telling another Sherlock Holmes adventure.

Readers expecting opera and opium will not be disappointed. Song For Someone is a novel with a lot of moving parts that are presented from the narrative perspectives of Irene and Sherlock’s journals and it’s clear from the start that Irene is very much Sherlock’s equal when it comes to intellect and cutting repertoire. This is brought to the fore by a plot that is tightly paced whilst leaving just enough breathing room for Sherrinford’s characters to thrive and readers will be won over by the delightful dynamics between them.

The fun of a good story is rarely in its conclusion but in the complications its characters face along the way and here Sherrinford has pitched it just right with a fine supporting cast of characters that make a persuasive case for multiple sequels.

A highly enjoyable read that falls into the ‘something for everyone’ category Song For Someone proves a fine showcase for a reimagined ‘Holmes’ character and certainly won’t disappoint!
