Sherlock Holmes thrives on danger. Sudden knife attacks, being stalked, and facing a network of assassins present little more than a cheery break in the monotony. But the enigmatic Lady Beatrice presents danger of a different kind. Is she a murderer or a potential victim? Or something even more perilous? Uncovering her secrets could change Holmes’s life forever, and in ways even he cannot anticipate. The newly-discovered Holmes diaries shed light on a tale so potent, Watson was never permitted to reveal it.
“The plot is multilayered, characters fleshed out and alive with suitable backstories. Just a joy to read! I look forward to Geri Schear’s sequel. Highly recommended! I was thoroughly entertained and touched.”
“This is the most “authentic-feeling” work I have read. Doyle himself would be pleased with this. Every detail reeks of authenticity. It was difficult to put this down, and I’m sorry I’m finished!”
