    Story
    "Mystery spoof on Sherlock Holmes mysteries!"

    This second mystery in a series about Reggie and Nigel Heath, is a serious mystery spoof on the Sherlock Holmes mysteries. In 1997 London, the Heath brothers have leased 221 Baker Street for their law offices. As part of their lease, they must send a form letter to everyone who sends them a letter addressed to the legendary Sherlock Holmes. Right now, that's about all that is happening at their offices. Then the lovely barrister, Darla Rennie asks Reggie to defend a London Black Cabbie against a murder charge. In doing so, Reggie gets himself deep into a deadly situation concerning all of the Black Cabbies.

    This mystery has lots of charm and humor mixed in with serious threats, chases, and an unusual psychological workshop. A letter signed by a "Dr Moriarty" comes to Baker Street sending Reggie onto a clue to save his client, but it also seems to threaten his own life. The London Black Cabbies play an important roll in solving the crime also.

    Clever take on the Sherlock Holmes theme! Looking forward to reading more in this series!

    "A Dud"

    Great idea for a story, but this turned out to be a dud for me. Hard to follow what was happening; narrative seemed arch and labored. Conspicuously lacking in wit.
