It’s Sherlock Holmes versus the internet!

Well, that’s not quite accurate. But it is Sherlock Holmes pitted against an incredible crime solving machine which its inventor hopes one day will link up to other machines in police stations and newspaper rooms all around the country. So yeah, it’s Sherlock Holmes taking on the internet.

It’s a book which manages the interesting trick of feeling both Victorian and incredibly modern at the same time. I don’t have any way of knowing if it might be the case, but it wouldn’t surprise me if it turned out that Lovegrove was a big fan of the Basil Rathbone version of Sherlock. With its derring-do version of the character, a big grand adventure with melodramatic moments, THE THINKING ENGINE has the same kind of feel as those 1940’s movies. (Although our Watson here is far more competent than the Nigel Bruce version.) As such it may not be quite in sync with Conan-Doyle, but it’s still a damned entertaining read.

My debut novel, THE WANNABES – which has been out of print for a little while – is now available for free. A supernatural thriller of beautiful actresses and deadly ambition in London town, it’s well worth your time. You can get your copy here!
