It is 1878, and Dr. Poppy Stamford has reluctantly rekindled her relationship with Sherlock Holmes. Though it has been almost four years since they parted on uneasy terms and while he continues to suppress his feelings for her, they are still intrigued and inspired - and frustrated - by each other. When her beloved uncle is arrested in relation to a series of murders near the British Museum, Poppy and the burgeoning detective set out to find the evidence to set him free.
Can they track down the real killer in time to save Uncle Ormond from the rope?
In the latest adventure of Poppy Stamford and Sherlock Holmes, the two not only uncover secret societies, but find themselves soul-searching to clarify their beliefs about an array of moral issues including euthanasia and the death penalty, as well as their feelings toward one another.

Love mysteries, historical fiction and well written romance with plot twists and strong characters
I liked the crime/mystery that needed to be solved that also examined some deeper philosophical questions, historical setting felt really well researched
I have a lot of empathy for Poppy, a modern woman in a difficult time
Sherlock reminds me of the modern tv series on BBC which I love
Also some interesting discussion of Buddhist philosophy
Denver, Co metro area resident for over fifty-five years. Retired, Mid 60's, Male, own over 9,600 Kindle books, and over 400 Audible books.
It ranks in the top twenty five. It stays true to Conan Doyle's classic chracter. I got a bit lost in the Buddhist philosophy. Not lost exactly, but it wasn't of much interest to involve me with that aspect anyway
The sinking of the Princess Alice, an historical event.
I have listened to Cat's performance on "When the Song of the Angel is Stilled". The first book in the "Before Watson" series. The performance is excellent, as it was on that audio book rendition.
As mentioned, these works stay true to the Doyle vision of Sherlock Holmes, Mycroft, Lestrade, and plots etc. So the listener familiar with the original stories is comfortable and involved. That's a very strong positive, in my opinion. This is quality series, and well worth your time and creditts.
This is an audio book that I was caught up in from the start! Thoroughly enjoyed it! Thanks for making it available.
