    If you enjoy classic Sherlock Holmes type mysteries I am quite sure you will enjoy this novella a Mr Mycroft story being republished and reintroduced to contemporary audiences now The principal character is also the narrator introduced to the action because of his penchant for seeking out local honey after he moves to the countryside He is a man who values his solitary life but then comes to find that he may need some help for his source of honey may in fact be lethalThis is a rather fun story full of the mystery of bees and how to harness them the various evils of men as well as the types of men one might encounter in bucolic settings Always misleading those beautiful hedges and flowersAfter the novella there is a discussion as to the actual identity of Mr Mycroft and who he has been assumed to be over the years Also interesting I think I will look for of the Mr Mycroft storiesA copy of this book was provided by the publisher through NetGalley in return for an honest review
