Publisher's Summary

It is 1878, and Dr. Poppy Stamford has reluctantly rekindled her relationship with Sherlock Holmes. Though it has been almost four years since they parted on uneasy terms and while he continues to suppress his feelings for her, they are still intrigued and inspired - and frustrated - by each other. When her beloved uncle is arrested in relation to a series of murders near the British Museum, Poppy and the burgeoning detective set out to find the evidence to set him free.
Can they track down the real killer in time to save Uncle Ormond from the rope?
In the latest adventure of Poppy Stamford and Sherlock Holmes, the two not only uncover secret societies, but find themselves soul-searching to clarify their beliefs about an array of moral issues including euthanasia and the death penalty, as well as their feelings toward one another.

A young Sherlock, and a total hit!

I loved everything about this book! I am someone who enjoys the classic Sherlock Holmes, but even more so I enjoy the "remakes" such as the TV show Sherlock etc. I loved this new take by seeing a young Sherlock (he is in his mid/late 20's it seems). Sherlock as a character seems spot on for how he is known and loved. He's inquisitive and guarded, but also brilliant. Sometimes he shows moments of softness but he never breaks character, and this book truly does him justice.
I also love the strong female lead, especially back in the late 1800's. She is a Doctor who takes the lead and stands strong. It's a refreshing point of view.
Also of note is all the historical context and stories wrapped in were simply incredible. It's very historically accurate & was a winner all the way around. This book far exceeded my expectations & the narration was crisp, proper & well performed.
I was gifted this book in exchange for my honest review.
