Mycroft Holmes: A Novel by Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
On Wednesdays you can grab a free copy of Time Out New York near any subway station. Last week's edition gave an overview of the upcoming speaker series at the New York Public Library. Turns out in June, Kareem Abdul-Jabar, the famous NBA player, will be speaking with author, Walter Mosley, to discuss the art of mystery novel writing. What surprised us even more is that in fall 2015, Abdul-Jabar released his first mystery novel, Mycroft Holmes; it's based on Sherlock Holmes’s clever older brother! Apparently Abdul-Jabar has been a fan of the Holmes family for years. When we went over to Amazon we were floored by the four-star book reviews. We will be ordering our copy! We simply adore Sherlock.
