Publisher's Summary

A new short story in our bibliomystery series, from the author of "The Gods of Gotham" and "Seven for a Secret".
A librarian is tormented by a lethal volume of black magic
When A. Davenport Lomax’s young daughter asks him whether spirits and faeries are real, the Edwardian librarian just pats the little darling on the head. But when a desperate man emerges from the winding passages of the library muttering about demonology, he gets Lomax’s attention. Theodore Grange is a member of the Brotherhood of Solomon, a secret society dedicated to unraveling the mysteries of black magic, and he believes he has found a book written by the Queen of Sheba herself. Said to hold the answers to one thousand demonic mysteries, the tome will poison any man who dares read it.
The next time Lomax sees him, Grange is at death’s door. To uncover the truth about The Gospel of Sheba, Lomax agrees to accompany Grange to a meeting of the brotherhood, where he will encounter darkness that threatens his life, his family, and his soul.

A little treat for Holmes lovers and lovers of libraries and all they imply

I admit to an inordinate affection for libraries & for the physical book. The idea of rare volumes hiding in odd corners, little lifeboats carrying ideas into the future, thrills me. So this story, centered on a victorian librarian and his place of work, is a little slice of heaven. That we back into the mystery, and into the main character’s connection with Conan Doyle’s characters hardly matters to me, I’m so delighted by the library.
