I ran across a review for this book that I think says it all. It is penned by Roger Johnson of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London. In it he states, "An Opened Grave is unusually well done. Mr. James captures the Doyle-Watson style acceptably. More importantly he achieves the considerable feat of treating a serious subject -- the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ -- seriously within a story that's both thrilling and funny. There's excitement in plenty, and the reasoned arguments for and against the Christian faith are thoroughly stimulating. Like GK Chesterton and CS Lewis, Mr James is a fine storyteller and a notable Christian apologist."We have given this book to several agnostic friends/family who love fiction. The fictional device is excellently handled by Frank James in communicating the gospel. It deals honestly with the arguments against belief and delivers the redemptive message in an inviting way.

The most amazing aspect of this latest work by Mr. James is it's period feel. As if Doyle himself had written it. Just one more example of the truly Rennaisance talents of Frank James. I'm honored to call him friend.A Browne
