USA Today bestselling author Sherry Thomas turns the story of the renowned Sherlock Holmes upside down. With her inquisitive mind, Charlotte Holmes has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of the fairer sex in upper-class society. But even she never thought that she would become a social pariah, an outcast fending for herself on the mean streets of London. When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. She’ll have help from friends new and old, but in the end, it will be up to Charlotte, under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, to challenge society’s expectations and match wits against an unseen mastermind.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Kate Reading is masterful in her portrayals in this clever historical mystery with a fabulous twist…Reading’s aristocratic British voices are spot-on, and her acting is outstanding. She depicts all types of characters—funny, touching, romantic, suspenseful, haughty, old, young, wealthy, or poor—with the same believability. This is an exceptionally fine audio experience, with a story that will grab listeners from the get-go. Let’s say a prayer that more books like it follow. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“The various characters introduced are quite interesting and the plot lines are great. This is the first in the new Lady Sherlock series, and if this is any clue, Charlotte and her continuing adventures will be thrilling to read.” Suspense Magazine
“Thomas takes Holmes down false paths that also lead the reader astray as she attempts to solve the crimes. Her character development is well done and matches the clever plot. There’s one surprise after another as each layer is unwrapped. The use of Doyle’s characters adds flavor to the story.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Clever historical details and a top-shelf mystery add to the winning appeal of this first volume in the ‘Lady Sherlock’ series. A must-read for fans of historical mysteries.” Library Journal (starred review)
