Sherlock Holmes and the Christmas demon
eAudio - 2021
The new Sherlock Holmes novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Age of Odin and Firefly: Big Damn Hero. It is 1890, and in the days before Christmas Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson are visited at Baker Street by a new client. Eve Allerthorpe-eldest daughter of a grand but somewhat eccentric Yorkshire-based dynasty-is greatly distressed, as she believes she is being haunted by a demonic Christmas spirit. Her late mother told her terrifying tales of the sinister Black Thurric...k, and Eve is sure that she has seen the creature from her bedroom window. What is more, she has begun to receive mysterious parcels of birch twigs, the Black Thurrick's calling card … Eve stands to inherit a fortune if she is sound of mind, but it seems that something-or someone-is threatening her sanity. Holmes and Watson travel to the Allerthorpe family seat at Fellscar Keep to investigate, but soon discover that there is more to the case than at first appeared. There is another spirit haunting the family, and when a member of the household is found dead, the companions realize that no one is beyond suspicion. "A terrific page-turner." "Stellar…Lovegrove joins Denis Smith and Philip Purser-Hallard in the top rank of authors of traditional Holmes pastiches." "Compelling and inherently fascinating."
