Publisher's Summary

Performed by award-winning narrators Simon Prebble and Wendy Tremont King.  

A baffling murder. A master criminal. Have the world’s greatest detective and his intrepid American daughter finally met their match? Seven short stories published in one volume for the first time, featuring Sherlock Holmes and his long-lost daughter.

Sherlock Holmes and Lucy James have become a formidable family crime-fighting team. But one murderous woman has evaded their grasp. And when they’re called to London’s Olympia Theatre to investigate the strange death of a circus clown, they quickly discover their cunning foe has struck again.

Tracking the enigmatic killer through London Zoo, a fancy-dress ball, and a sinister occult organization, the erudite duo stays hot on her heels. Each time they close in, a powerful criminal mastermind intervenes, and she slips through their fingers. But failing to bring their enemies to justice may cost them the one thing they both hold dear….

Can Holmes and Lucy catch a monster, or is this the evildoer who will defeat them at last? 

This collection of stories takes the reader on a breathless journey through five connected tales, plus two Christmas bonus cases. If you like Victorian intrigue, stunning surprises, and old-fashioned page-turners, you’ll love Anna Elliott and Charles Veley’s exciting mysteries. Listen today!

Female reader not best choice for this series

I enjoy this series, and the short stories were light and fun mysteries. My one complaint is the female reader. Her skills with accents aren’t the most versatile or adept. Okay, neither are mine; but I’m not being paid to read aloud. Hang with the series though because the newer reader, Ms Mary Jane Wells, does much better with character accents and performance. Mr Prebble does a great job as always.
