Bonnie MacBird – The Devils Due


After Art in the Blood and Unquiet Spirits, Holmes and Watson are back in the third of Bonnie MacBirds critically acclaimed Sherlock Holmes Adventures, written in the tradition of Conan Doyle himself.

Its 1890 and the newly famous Sherlock Holmes faces his worst adversary to date – a diabolical villain bent on destroying some of Londons most admired public figures in particularly gruesome ways. A further puzzle is that suicide closely attends each of the murders. As he tracks the killer through vast and seething London, Holmes finds himself battling both an envious Scotland Yard and a critical press as he follows a complex trail from performers to princes, anarchists to aesthetes. But when his brother Mycroft disappears, apparently the victim of murder, even those loyal to Holmes begin to wonder how close to the flames he has travelled. Has Sherlock Holmes himself made a deal with the devil?
