World's Greatest Sleuth!, by Steve Hockensmith

I hate doing this as I've been a big fan of these Holmes on the Range stories, but I have to give this one a negative review.  This book just didn't live up to the previous novels in any respect.  Some of the other books had pretty weak plots, but the characters and dialog were so enjoyable they were still good reads.  This one, unfortunately, just doesn't have much going for it.  I'm happy for the author, since taking over the Pridge & Predjudice & Zombies franchise I suspect he's become wealthier and can now pursue other projects that he couldn't before.  I just got the feeling this novel had been phoned in, but maybe the next one in the series will pick right back up again.
