Publisher's summary

A GLORIOUS SHERLOCK HOLMES-INSPIRED MYSTERY FOR FANS OF NITA PROSE AND JANICE HALLETT.

'A page-turning cosy crime delight, with a fearless heroine and a twisty mystery at its heart, full of humour, drama, revelations and romance' – KATIE MARSH

London, 1932. A young maid steps onto a train… and disappears. Her desperate family writes to the only person they can think of to help: Sherlock Holmes. A shame then, that Detective Holmes isn’t real. But then, from a basement beneath 221b Baker Street, someone replies…

Harriet White knows responding to the maid’s family could land her in hot water, but she’s no stranger to trouble. It was refusing to cow to her handsy boss that saw her demoted to the postal department of their Baker Street head office in the first place. Her new job is to work through the mountain of correspondence addressed to the street’s most famous resident. But when this letter catches her eye, she knows she must do something to help the missing girl.

Harriet decides to act as Holmes’ new assistant, armed with only her love of Conan Doyle’s stories to guide her. But can she solve the case of the missing maid? Or does she risk losing her job – or much, much more – in the process?

New exciting plot twist!

I am a voracious listener of Cozy Mysteries so I have heard so many familiar story lines but this one is new to me : the secretary of Sherlock Holmes! I'm not going to give a summary of the book because I want the readers to be surprised with this great plot twist! Enjoy, fellow readers! It will be worth every minute!

Enjoyed it very much!

A good listen, the narration was excellent, the writing and the characters made it worthwhile. I would listen to more titles by this author. There was nothing too gory, and the main characters were admirable. The only detractor for me was that the pace was slower than I like. However, it kept my interest throughout. For me, I prefer a little more action as we go, and a more taut pacing of the story.
