The Unpleasantness at Baskerville Hall by Chris Dolley

Steampunk pseudo-Holmes madcap retelling-ish! That’s the fastest elevator pitch I can come up with to sell this book to you. It’s a fun premise, and Dolley capitalizes on it to make an ultimately satisfying story.

Family money is on the line as murder haunts the Baskerville-Smythe family. Strange reptiles, steampunk tech, and the bumbling nonsense of detective-antics all pile up to make this mystery a funny, entertaining read. One of my favorite scenes in the book is when the attempt at solving the mystery is put forward, but there’s a twist that readers might not expect.

The Unpleasantness at Baskerville Hall is a good read with a mystery at its core. I enjoyed it, and I think readers who enjoy steampunk and/or mystery will as well.
