A FRESH, FAITHFUL REIMAGINING OF THE GREAT DETECTIVE -- AND HIS BRAVE, BRILLIANT DAUGHTER
Fans love this popular new series!
A young woman begs Sherlock Holmes to find her missing fiancee. A strange aristocratic woman asks Lucy James to locate her lady's maid. And the British authorities command Holmes to recover an enormous hoard of stolen opium.
But then the world's greatest detective makes an uncharacteristic mistake.
Soon Watson and Lucy get the devastating news: Sherlock Holmes has been murdered.
The newest adventure in this popular mystery series takes us from the Old Bailey courthouse and the seacoast lairs of smugglers to a grand British country estate and the posh financial headquarters of Lloyd's of London. For Watson, Sherlock and Lucy, survival will require valor, sacrifice, and acts that go far, far outside the law.
NOTE: Each book in The Sherlock Holmes & Lucy James Mystery Series -- which to date includes The Last Moriarty, The Wilhelm Conspiracy, Remember, Remember, The Crown Jewel Mystery, The Jubilee Problem, Death at the Diogenes Club and The Return of the Ripper -- are as enjoyable as 'standalone' stories as they are read in consecutive order.
A Note From the Publisher
"Elliott (the Twilight of Avon trilogy) and Veley, her father, collaborate on the winning third mystery pairing Sherlock Holmes and his daughter, Lucy James. Readers will look forward to Lucy's further adventures." -- Publishers Weekly (Remember, Remember: A Sherlock Holmes & Lucy James Mystery, Book #3)
“The relationship between Holmes and Watson feels genuine — a more challenging aspect that many novelists struggle with — and Lucy proves to be a marvelous addition to the world of Holmes. She is engaging, intelligent, and brings out another side to the Great Detective that readers rarely see. An intriguing take on both the Holmes canon and the most famous unsolved case in history.” -- Seattle Book Review (The Return of the Ripper: A Sherlock Holmes & Lucy James Mystery, Book #7)
"Fans of Holmesian stories, historical fiction, and Victorian romance will all find something to enjoy in the Sherlock Holmes & Lucy James Mystery Series." -- Critical Blast
"It might be difficult to imagine the original Holmes even having an offspring -- much less one he accepts as an investigating partner. Still, the authors make it seem plausible, and for readers who are not purists but rather pleased to see a hint of warmth coming from Holmes, [the Sherlock & Lucy series] is a new way to enjoy Sherlockian mysteries." -- The Santa Barbara Independent
