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.
