The game is afoot as Charlotte Holmes returns in the atmospheric second novel in New York Times bestseller Sherry Thomas's Victorian-set Lady Sherlock series.
Being shunned by Society gives Charlotte Holmes the time and freedom to put her extraordinary powers of deduction to good use. As “Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective,” aided by the capable Mrs. Watson, she’s had great success helping with all manner of inquiries, but she’s not prepared for the new client who arrives at her Upper Baker Street office.
Lady Ingram, wife of Charlotte’s dear friend and benefactor, wants Sherlock Holmes to find her first love, who failed to show up at their annual rendezvous. Matters of loyalty and discretion aside, the case becomes even more personal for Charlotte as the missing man is none other than Myron Finch, her illegitimate half brother.
In the meanwhile, Charlotte wrestles with a surprising proposal of marriage, a mysterious stranger woos her sister Livia, and an unidentified body that surfaces where least expected. Charlotte’s investigative prowess is challenged as never before: Can she find her brother in time—or will he, too, end up as a nameless corpse somewhere in the belly of London?
This is the second book in the Lady Sherlock series by Sherry Thomas.
Wow, what a wild ride that was. This book was filled with so much wonder, excitement and thrills. I like Charlotte even more in book two. The mystery was well plotted and up to par for a Sherlock tale. The cast is just getting more well developed I feel like I am watching all this on tv instead of reading. Well done!
I just can’t get enough of this series! I am working on doing a reading marathon right now of all of Thomas’s Lady Sherlock stories
If you like cozy mysteries, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
