Publisher's Summary

From USA Today best-selling author Leonard Goldberg comes The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes, a new thrilling tale of the great detective's daughter and her companion, Dr. John Watson Jr., as they investigate a murder at the highest levels of British society.

England, 1914. Joanna Blalock's keen mind and incredible insight lead her to become a highly skilled nurse, one of the few professions that allow her to use her finely tuned brain. But when she and her 10-year-old son witness a man fall to his death, apparently by suicide, they are visited by the elderly Dr. John Watson and his charming, handsome son, Dr. John Watson Jr. Impressed by her forensic skills, they invite her to become the third member of their investigative team.

Caught up in a Holmesian mystery that spans from hidden treasure to the Second Afghan War of 1878-1880, Joanna and her companions must devise an ingenious plan to catch a murderer in the act while dodging familiar culprits, Scotland Yard, and members of the British aristocracy. Unbeknownst to her, Joanna harbors a mystery of her own. The product of a one-time assignation between the now dead Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, the only woman to ever outwit the famous detective, Joanna has unwittingly inherited her parents' deductive genius.

    "I LOVED IT!!!"

    So entertaining, well read and identifiable. Mrs. Blalock took me back to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle stories and the visit was wonderful. I believe that anyone who enjoys Sherlock Holmes, will enjoy this as well. It isn't quite as invIf it was to become a series, I would be one of the first to pre-order it.

    Sherlock was there in this believable mystery.. Exciting to feel the intellect of Holmes come alive in a woman. Worth it. And I hope there will be a sequel to fill out the character of iSherlock's dayghter

    "Sherlock stories continue!"

    As a devoted Holmes fan, I found this story superb. The audio presentation was also excellent...one of those where I stay in the car long after the trip is done, just to hear more. Enjoyable from start to finish!

    "Excellent, Watson! The story is afoot!"

    I'm not a Baker Street Irregular, but as close as can be to those Holmes aficionados, and I can say with no reserve, Bravo Goldberg, you've done it! The book was made even more enjoyable by Steve West's stellar performance. He nailed the voices and the accents until you were sure you were listening to five different people. I really enjoyed this novel as much as I enjoyed the Conan Doyle tales, so if you ever matched wits with Sherlock, this is the book for you.
