Editorial Reviews

"A top-notch mystery filled with clever twists and winning characters. AudioFile Magazine
“In a remarkable performance, Steve West becomes Dr. John Watson, Jr., husband of Joanna Blalock, daughter of Sherlock Holmes. West also gives dozens of other characters honest and convincing personalities…With only his voice, West makes each person vivid. Listeners can clearly picture young Johnny, Joanna’s precocious son. Lestrade of the Yard and Dunn of Naval Intelligence persist in jumping to wrong conclusions, and West makes their embarrassment palpable. A top-notch mystery filled with clever twists and winning characters. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” Audiofile
“Joanna Watson, the daughter of Sherlock Holmes, continues to pursue the espionage investigations that have recently become her specialty…Fans of all things Sherlock-ian will delight in Joanna, so like her father and already training her schoolboy son, Johnny, in the methods that have solved so many cases like this exceptionally tricky one.” Kirkus Reviews
“Set in London in 1915, Goldberg’s enjoyable third Daughter of Sherlock Holmes mystery…Like her late father (who died in 1903, according to Goldberg), Joanna works through the logic of any puzzle presented, large or small…to a satisfying finale. The many references to the original Sherlock Holmes adventures will please Conan Doyle fans.” Publishers Weekly
“Suspenseful and entertaining, with many twists and turns….This is one of the best Sherlock Holmes series since Laurie R. King’s Mary Russell books.” Historical Novel Society, praise for the series
