The rain and cold didn't deter around a hundred Sherlock Holmes fans from the launch of author Susan Knight's debut story collection 'Mrs Hudson Investigates' in Dublin on Thursday.
Susan was joined by Holmes and Watson who entertained the crowd in the beautiful surroundings of The Teacher's Club - courtesy of the local drama society.
Susan's book is already getting rave reviews. It features a series of stories where Mrs Hudson is the lead detective taking cases when Holmes and Watson are otherwise occupied.
'Mrs Hudson Investigates' is available from all good bookstores including:
A distraught young woman arrives at Baker Street urgently requesting the assistance of Mr Sherlock Holmes. But the great man and his assistant Dr Watson are away. What to do? She confides in Holmes's landlady, Mrs Hudson, who over the years has developed certain powers of deduction from observing her tenant at work. The young woman, responding to this, begs her for help. Reluctantly, Mrs Hudson agrees...
Thus begins a series of adventures, recounted engagingly by Mrs Hudson herself. Adventures and investigations which take her across the country, from the Midlands to Sydenham, from Eastbourne to Edinburgh. Her warmth and down-to-earth practicality are brought to bear on a range of strange and startling crimes that occasionally lead even Mrs Hudson herself into mortal danger.
