Enjoyable Book: Sherlock Holmes and the Army of Dr. Moreau

I (Rob) recently finished an Enjoyable Book: Sherlock Holmes and the Army of Dr. Moreau by Guy Adams. It brought
together these two classic characters from different authors for a great new Sherlock Holmes story. I've always been a fan of Sherlock Holmes and H.G. Wells' classic "The Island of Dr. Moreau." The author does a great job capturing the essence of Holmes and Watson, and ties them in nicely to the Dr. Moreau legacy. Well-worth the read!- Rob


BOOK SUMMARY: Following the trail of several corpses seemingly killed by wild animals, Holmes and Watson stumble upon the experiments of Doctor Moreau.
   Moreau, through vivisection and crude genetic engineering is creating animal hybrids, determined to prove the evolutionary theories of Charles Darwin. In his laboratory, hidden among the opium dens of Rotherhithe, Moreau is building an army of 'beast men'. Tired of having his work ignored -- or reviled -- by the British scientific community, Moreau is willing to make the world pay attention using his creatures as a force to gain control of the government.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
