9781846058103: The Holmes Affair

"The Sherlockian [Holmes Affair] is a brilliantly executed must-read for all admirers of historical fiction, Sherlock Holmes and intellectual mysteries. Engrossing, suspenseful and fast-paced, this debut novel manages to be both highly original as well as deeply reverential to its literary sources.

Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent
