Die Again, Mr. Holmes
Anna Elliott, author

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

A FRESH, FAITHFUL REIMAGINING OF THE GREAT DETECTIVE -- AND HIS BRAVE, BRILLIANT DAUGHTER

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 (a prequel), 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.

Reviews
The teasing prologue to Elliott and Veley’s entertaining eighth pastiche featuring Sherlock Holmes and his detective daughter, Lucy (after 2018’s The Return of the Ripper), presents the shocking news that Holmes has been shot and fallen into the Thames. Flash back to 10 days earlier. Holmes and Dr. Watson attend a London courtroom as a jury renders its guilty verdict in the case of Thomas Newman, the head of the Bleeders, a vicious East End gang. Newman’s only utterance before being sentenced to hang is the ominous sentence, “I’m not done yet.” The meaning of that becomes clearer when Florence Janine approaches Holmes and Watson outside the Old Bailey asking for help tracing her fiancé, John Swafford. He’s a police detective investigating Newman and had told Janine that the gang leader was plotting to bribe his jailers and escape. Meanwhile, Lady Serena Lynley retains Lucy to find her missing maid, Alice Gordon. The authors provide a clever variation on a familiar theme by making the concept of Holmes as a parent plausible.
