Publisher's Summary

Psychic Nan Killian and Medium Sarah Lyon-White - along with their clever birds: the raven, Neville; and the parrot, Grey - have been agents of Lord Alderscroft, the Elemental Fire Master known as the Wizard of London, since leaving school. Now Lord Alderscroft assigns them another commission: to work with the famous man living at 221 Baker Street - but not the one in flat B. They are to assist the man living in flat C. Dr. John Watson and his wife, Mary, themselves Elemental Masters of Water and Air, take the occult cases John's more famous friend disdains, and they will need every skill the girls and their birds can muster!
Nan and Sarah's first task: to confront and eliminate the mysterious and deadly entity that nearly killed them as children - the infamous Haunt of Number 10 Berkeley Square. But the next task divides the girls for the first time since they were children. A German opera star begs Sarah for help, seeking a Medium's aid against not just a single spirit but a multitude. As Sarah becomes more deeply entwined with the prima donna, Nan continues to assist John and Mary Watson alone, only to discover that Sarah's case is far more sinister than it seems. It threatens to destroy not only a lifelong friendship but much, much more.

Great Story

I love Sherlock Holmes being in this one. It was a suspenseful exciting at times unexpected. The narrator however while she has a very strong lead character voice she had a pretty horrible time, changing her voice to suit other characters. She really needs some work.

More Elemental Masters

Would you consider the audio edition of A Study in Sable to be better than the print version?

Yes. I'm not disappointed with this performance. I enjoyed it. It held my interest.

What other book might you compare A Study in Sable to and why?

It holds up to the other books in the Elemental Masters series. I own four (4) hard copy books, and five (5) audio books in this series. There is not a weak story amongst them.

Which character – as performed by Gemma Dawson – was your favorite?

Miss Nan

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

What goes around, comes around.
You do reap as you sow.

Any additional comments?

Ms Lackey should keep up the good work: More elemental masters!
