Publisher's Summary

A stunning Dr. Watson thriller perfect for all fans of Sherlock.
The year is 1917, and Dr. John Watson is held in a notorious POW camp deep in enemy Germany, there as medical officer for the British prisoners.
With the Allied blockade, food is perilously short in the camp, and when a new prisoner is murdered, all assume the poor chap was killed for his Red Cross parcel.
Watson, though, isn't so sure.
Something isn't quite what it seems, and a creeping feeling of unease tells Watson there is more to this than meets the eye. And when an escape plot is apparently uncovered in his hut and he is sent to solitary confinement, he knows he has touched a nerve.
If Watson is to reveal the heinous crimes that have occurred at the camp, he must escape before he is silenced for good. All he needs is some long-distance help from his old friend, Sherlock Holmes....

Most Helpful

Not as good as the two previous books.

The promise of a good plot dissolved into hurried theatrics by the author. The addition of the final chapter as a Sherlock Holmes story was a distraction, and frankly not worth the effort. I hope Mr. Ryan continues the series and woos me back in with the next novel.

Still good, but

Was not up to the first two "Watsons" but I am glad I listened to it.
