Gale Research

Called the "cleverest Sherlock Holmes pastiche of recent years" by the New York Times Book Review's Julian Symons, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution has received much praise from the critics. L. J. Davis of the New Republic judges it to be "about as good as such a book [can] get--better, in fact, than a lot of later Doyle," while Peter S. Prescott of Newsweek declares that it is "more than a charming pastiche; it is an ingenious one."

"Meyer has reconstructed the Sherlock Holmes canon in a rather convincing manner," notes the New York Times's Anatole Broyard. "[He] has blended ingenuity and farce in just about the right proportions. . . . Though Holmes carries out the more familiar heroics, it is appealingly self-deprecating Freud who emerges as the real hero."
