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.

How can you not love Miss Charlotte!!

This book is the 3rd installment of the Lady Sherlock Series. They just keep getting better - I hope there is a 4th to come out!
Charlotte is just a hoot. She's smart, quirky and always in a bit of trouble. She and Mrs. Watson will keep you on your toes until the end of the book. You just have to know WHO is responsible for the death of Lord Ingram's Wife....and don't even get me stated on Lord Ingram! This is just a fun book through and through. Highly recommend if you want a good read, a good laugh and a bit of a mystery!

New take on Sherlock Holmes

Interesting story line, lots of twist and turns. Characters are lively and Ms. Holmes is way ahead of her time. Fun read.
