The Exploits of the Second Mrs. Watson

The Exploits of the Second Mrs. Watson - Michael Mallory A very entertaining collection of stories featuring Amelia, the never-named second Mrs. Watson, the only reference to whom, in the canon, is a somewhat peevish note by Holmes in "The Adventure of the Blanched Soldier" that "The good Watson had at that time deserted me for a wife, the only selfish action which I can recall in our association." While the problems are interesting and the obviously tense relationship between Amelia and Holmes can be amusing, the writing leaves a lot to be desired, especially for those of us who are used to the good doctor's polished prose.
