The lastest review of Marino Alvarez's book is by Phillip K Jones.
A Professor Reflects on Sherlock Holmes by Marino C. Alvarez includes Essays, Travel writing about Reichenbach and Trummelbach Falls, and a Miscellania section. Forewords by Gael Stahl, Billy Fields, and Jim Hawkins, long-standing members of Nashville Scholars of the Three Pipe Problem.
Publisher Steve Emecz says this about Professor Alvarez's book:
"Marino's devotion to and love of Holmes comes through in what is quite a remarkable book. I draw parallels with Dan Andriacco's Baker Street Beat, which the Sherlock Holmes Society of London commented was like having a drink with an old Holmesian friend, and I get the same feeling with this book --- although this book is more scholarly.
