"Devotees of the greatest of all fictional detectives will welcome this anthology from King and Klinger, who have assembled a murderers' row of talent, including bestselling authors not usually associated with Holmes and Watson."
– Publishers Weekly (starred)
"The tales cover a wide variety of interpretations, from comedic to dark, and range from straight pastiches in Watson's voice to modern settings with Holmesian investigators. Surprising and twisty results."
– Author Magazine
"Original and intriguing. Fans of Sherlock Holmes will find plenty to appreciate in this collection."
– The Oklahoman
"Delightful. The tales, all exceedingly clever, are sometimes in classic Holmesian style and time period; others make only passing reference to the great detective; and some have ingenious twists."
– Seattle Times
"Great fun for anyone who loves crime fiction. The collection is diverting, delightful, and best taken with a cup of hot tea."
– Hallie Ephron, bestselling author of 'Never Tell a Lie'
"Sara Paretsky contributes an excellent feminist pastiche, Gahan Wilson some amusing cartoons, Andrew Grant a whimsical social-media update of The Hound of the Baskervilles, Jeffery Deaver a well-constructed tale about a man who idolizes not Holmes but Moriarty. A sharp, affectionate, light-footed collection."
– New York Times Book Review
"Satisfy your Sherlock cravings with these superb stories."
– Book Riot
"Boasts all-new stories, some featuring Holmes himself, others inspired by him, by such ace contemporary writers as Michael Connelly, Sara Paretsky and Jeffery Deaver."
– Tampa Bay Times
"This companion volume to A Study in Sherlock features 16 writers and cartoonists whose imagination has been stirred by the great detective. The writers obviously had a lot of fun with these imaginative and effective pieces, and Holmes and his companions live again."
– Providence Journal
"An eclectic but accomplished group of novelists, primarily mystery and crime writers, take some intriguingly different looks at Holmes’ legacy. The legacy of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s work and his most famous character is on rich display here, and In the Company of Sherlock Holmes should be on the reading list of any Holmes fan."
"There are some gems. This book was conceived in fun, written in fun and edited in fun. It should be read in that spirit. For 127 years since his first case and for 84 years since the death of his creator, Sherlock Holmes is still entertaining us."
– Dallas Morning News
"The game is afoot for an eclectic collection of writers, including Sara Paretsky, Harlan Ellison, Denise Hamilton and Nancy Holder."
– Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"As brilliant as it is entertaining."
– Spartanburg Herald Journal
