Art in the Blood
Winter 1888, London, Paris, Lancashire. A child vanishes, a stolen statue leaves a trail of blood, and silk mill murders convolve into a fast-paced thriller in which Sherlock Holmes finds his artistic temperament and his friendship with Watson challenged to the limit. First in the acclaimed HarperCollins series.
December 1889. Holmes and Watson race from London to the French Riviera, then a “haunted” castle in the Highlands in a terrifying case involving the whisky business, French wine, long buried secrets, and a vibrant young Scotwoman. To solve the mysteries, Holmes must face a “ghost” from his own past. Second in the series.
The Devil’s Due
