Sherlock Holmes & The Needle’s Eye by Len Bailey

            Sherlock Holmes and the Needle's Eye by Len Bailey is a journey through the Old and New Testament with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson as they explore exotic and spice-laden places in search of clues.  

            Watson and Holmes are fantastically reinvented in this amazing novel. The idea of traveling and connecting biblical references with the situation these men must solve is thrilling. Sherlock Holmes is one of my favorite detectives.  Sherlock has discovered a time machine that allows him to travel back into Bible time to find mysteries to solve. Sherlock Holmes and the Needle's Eye is all about unlocking Bible mysteries.    

            The Bible stories used the reader may consider familiar and unremarkable. But under close scrutiny these stories give up their hidden clues and long kept secrets. Like jewels, hidden in the sand, they sparkle and shine with a fresh, introspective light.

            If you like mystery/suspense and fans who love Sherlock Holmes should check out this book. There are questions in the back to delve deeper into the mysteries of the Bible. I would recommend this book.

            I received copy of Book from Thomas Nelson in their Booksneeze Blogging for books program for my review.
