Publisher Description

As seen on The Today Show! One of the best summer mystery picks!

Charlotte Holmes, Lady Sherlock, returns in the Victorian-set mystery series from the USA Today bestselling author of A Conspiracy in Belgravia and A Study in Scarlet Women, an NPR Best Book of 2016.


Under the cover of "Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective," Charlotte Holmes puts her extraordinary powers of deduction to good use. Aided by the capable Mrs. Watson, Charlotte draws those in need to her and makes it her business to know what other people don't.

Moriarty's shadow looms large. First, Charlotte's half brother disappears. Then, Lady Ingram, the estranged wife of Charlotte's close friend Lord Ingram, turns up dead on his estate. And all signs point to Lord Ingram as the murderer.

With Scotland Yard closing in, Charlotte goes under disguise to seek out the truth. But uncovering the truth could mean getting too close to Lord Ingram--and a number of malevolent forces...

Third time’s a charm?

“You might be surprised at the strength of the fragile. And for some people it is ordinary life that is most challenging, not so much the extraordinary.”

I am a great fan of Sherry Thomas’ Lady Sherlock. However, when this book seemed to be more focused on Olivia, Charlotte’s sister, I began to have my doubts about it and began to have doubts that this third book would be as entertaining as the first two were. And, I refuse to reveal much of the actual story as it is full of spoilers.

Again circling around the Ashburton brothers, Charlotte gets in the middle of Lord Ingram’s wife’s situation that started towards the end of the second story. [However, don’t worry if you haven’t read that one, these can all be read as stand alones.]. Secondarily, it also deals with Olivia’s budding romance and the safety of their sister Bernadine. We also get some backstory on the whole troupe. More than once I was heard to say:” So, NOW that makes sense!”.

And, after reading most of it in one sitting, I will be returning this *library*book and begin pining for my own used copy to grace myshelf next to it’s predecessors. Highly recommended 5/5.
