This book is 30 chapters long, Mycroft Holmes' "confessions" take up only two chapters. I really enjoy reading Marcel Theroux. His book Far North was slightly better. Confessions started a bit slow but the writing picked up.
This book is 30 chapters long, Mycroft Holmes' "confessions" take up only two chapters. There should be a law that if a book is entitled The Confessions of Mycroft Holmes, then Mycroft Holmes should play a honkin' big part of the book. The remainder is just pretentious crap. There is no mystery, no Holmes - and no point.

After hearing of his Uncle Patrick's death, Damien learns that he has inherited a ramshackle property on the isolated island of Ionia, off the coast of Cape Cod on the east coast of America.

This is the sort of book that is worth reading when you have pockets of time like on the train or bus in the morning or at night when you have a little time to yourself in the tub. It is a wonderful story, which I wouldn't be surprised if some of the elements are factual!!! 0.
Mycroft Holmes, the older brother of Sherlock, is one of literature's most intriguing absences. A neglected genius who lived in obscurity, he bears a striking resemblance to Patrick himself. The parallels quickly grow more disconcerting, and a sinister tale of murder and deception takes on new meaning. Written with warmth and distinctive humor, The Confessions of Mycroft Holmes is at once an engaging mystery and an illuminating story about family secrets and identity. Format Hardback 224 pages.
It’s called The Confessions of Mycroft Holmes. You know, Sherlock’s older brother. Mycroft - who’s kind of a layabout - meets this fellow, Abel Mundy, who has a deaf wife and kids. Mundy’s a nasty piece of work - this is, like, high melodrama - and Mycroft ends up topping him. Simple enough. ‘Simple enough,’ my father agreed. But here’s the weird part. Patrick really had some deaf neighbours. And being a little literal-minded, I thought: It’s a confession! - maybe he’s trying to tell us something. Maybe he’s offed this bloke, Fernshaw - Mundy.
