In The Bughouse Affair, the first of a new series of lighthearted historical mysteries set in 1890s San Francisco, former Pinkerton operative Sabina Carpenter and her detective partner, ex-Secret Service agent John Quincannon, undertake what initially appear to be two unrelated investigations.
The two cases eventually connect in surprising fashion, but not before two murders and assorted other felonies complicate matters even further. And not before the two sleuths are hindered, assisted, and exasperated by the bughouse Sherlock Holmes.

A good story let down by confusing narration
I like this story (I also have the paperback), but having two narrators was a mistake. I understand that there are two viewpoints to get across, but one good narrator can do this without the confusion of differing voice styles, which is what happened here. That said, Meredith Mitchell and Mark Peckham did the best job they could, it was just that they both didn’t need to be there.
