it is 1884, and when a fellow landlady finds her lodger poisoned, Mrs Hudson turns to Sherlock Holmes. The police suspect the landlady of murder, but Mrs Hudson insists that her friend is innocent. Upon investigating, the companions discover that the lodger, a civil servant recently returned from India, was living in almost complete seclusion, and that his last act was to scrawl a mysterious message on a scrap of paper. The riddles pile up as aged big game hunter Allan Quatermain is spotted at the scene of the crime when Holmes and Watson investigate.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A fun Holmes adventure that feels a lot like Arthur Conan Doyle's originals, with lots of twists and turns" The Crime Review

"carries the great Holmes name well through the 21st century. If you're a fan of any of the newest Holmes incarnations (whether it be Sherlock, Elementary or the Guy Ritchie films), this will be a great supplement to fuel your love for a great mystery" Culturess (Fansided)

"I was kind of hungry for something weird and geeky, and this story delivered by providing a sort of traditional Holmes and Watson, in an entirely new universe" Atomic Moo

"[Lovegrove] has a fine touch, an understanding of Holmes and of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's style and creative bent" Buried Under Books

"a Holmes mystery in keeping with the originals, and a credit to Lovegrove's skill." - Girl Who Read
