ABOUT THIS BOOK
It is 1884, and when a fellow landlady finds her lodger poisoned, Mrs Hudson turns to Sherlock Holmes.
The police suspect the landlady of murder, but Mrs Hudson insists that her friend is innocent. The companions discover that the lodger, a civil servant recently returned from India, was living in almost complete seclusion, and that his last act was to scrawl a mysterious message on a scrap of paper. The riddles pile up as aged big game hunter Allan Quatermain is spotted at the scene of the crime when Holmes and Watson investigate. The famous man of mind and the legendary man of action will make an unlikely team in a case of corruption, revenge, and what can only be described as magic...
SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE DEVIL'S DUST by James Lovegrove is another cracking mystery that will throw you back in time and make you feel like you are part of the story.
When Mrs. Hudson, Holmes' landlady, needs his services to clear her friend's name, Holmes and Watson wholeheartedly agree to help her. But when murder is the order of the day, this case is anything but straightforward. From the death of a wealthy hunter's son to a mining company with plenty to hide, Holmes and Watson will have to join forces with unexpected allies if they are to uncover the truth behind the dead man in the basement.
As always the plot, the narrative, and the setting are perfectly depicted and made the past come alive as you turn the page. I love a good mystery and this book does not disappoint. Following the clues and watching this iconic duo do their thing really is one of the most entertaining things about these books, and I have to say that SHERLOCK HOLMES: THE DEVIL'S DUST by James Lovegrove is my favourite of them all so far.
Intriguing, compelling, addictive, and downright entertaining, this book is a must-read for Sherlock Holmes fans and for mystery and historical fans alike.
James Lovegrove is the author of several acclaimed novels and books for children. Currently James resides in Eastbourne on the Sussex Coast, having moved there in August 2007 with his wife Lou, sons Monty and Theo, and cat Ozzy.
