Publisher's Summary

Charlotte Holmes, Lady Sherlock, returns in the Victorian-set mystery series from the USA Today best-selling author of A Conspiracy in Belgravia and A Study in Scarlet Women, an NPR Best Book of 2016.

Under the cover of "Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective", Charlotte Holmes puts her extraordinary powers of deduction to good use. Aided by the capable Mrs. Watson, Charlotte draws those in need to her and makes it her business to know what other people don't. 

When the estranged wife of her dear friend Lord Ingram is discovered dead on his estate, all signs point to him as the murderer. With Scotland Yard closing in, Charlotte goes under disguise to find out the truth.

Love this series

The plot of this book begins about 60 seconds after the previous book's plot ends, so be sure to read the series in order. That being said, if it has been a year or so since you read/listened to the last two books, you'll be fine, as the author kindly reminds the reader of the most salient plot points to get you up to speed in the first few minutes. This is a delightful series with Charlotte Holmes in the great detective's role, and there are plenty of plot twists and turns, as well as brilliant deductions, with a hint of romance, to keep any reader/listener happily occupied. Kate Reading is the perfect narrator (I love her rendition of the Pink Carnation series by Lauren Willig) and does a wonderful job conveying the nuances of each character. The is an extremely enjoyable book.

Best yet

The worst thing about this book is getting to the end and having to wait for the next one.

Love, love, love!

This was just released and I'm anxiously awaiting the next book. Kudos to Sherry Thomas for her excellent writing and successfully and artfully weaving an alternate Sherlock Holmes world storyline. Kate Reading also, as usual, expertly brings the characters to life. Whoever made the decision to put Ms. Reading's narration to Ms. Thomas' work deserves every reward they receive.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

This was the best yet in the Lady Sherlock series. Charlotte and Lord Ingram are delicious and the story was expertly woven and intriguing. I will be impatiently awaiting Lady Sherlock’s next adventure.

Wow! What a twist!

You will not see this ending coming. Shock, sadness, and a smile in the epilogue.

Did not enjoy this book at all.

The story started out very slowly, I was about to give up all together, then the mystery finally started to develop, but then I couldn't stay interested in the characters or plot at all. Charlotte nee Sherlock was an unbelievable character, none of the real Sherlock flair. Very disappointed, as I like most of the other Sherlock offshoot attempts in books, for instance Laurie R King books, and the Mary Russell character.

Best in the series... so far

I was really sad when this book came to an end. The sign of a great audiobook is that I immediately look for other titles by both the author and the narrator, and in this case I did both.

If you love Sherlock Holmes, you'll love this series. If you love strong women, you'll love this series. And the voices are distinct, and you'll fall in love with the characters.

I cannot wait for the next book in this series! I wish they came out more often!!! BRILLIANT!

Loved it!

I truly hated for this book to end! I had listened to the second book in the series 1st and couldn’t wait to get into this one and now I wish there were others in the sequence. The story, the narration, everything was delightful and perfect!

Impossible Perhaps But ...

it only continues to get better and better as this series of Ms. Holmes continues. Is it unfair for those who delight in this series to ask Ms. Thomas to send us book four very soon?

Enjoy.

Charlotte Holmes! Lord Ingram!

If you like Sherlock Holmes you will LOVE this series
Charlotte, Ms. Watson, Ashe, and Olivia are all wonderful characters and the story of crime solving and this love attraction between the two main characters are so well written.
Kate Reading is superb in narrating each character.
I heard the Lady Sherlock Series back to back and I am sadden that I do not know if a book 4 in the series is in the writing process.
Sherry Thomas, you are a genius!
