SHERLOCK HOLMES IV SERIES
In “Enigma in the Redlands,” inspired by Conan Doyle’s “The Adventure of the Copper Beeches,” a nanny, hoping to work for a wealthy family, reaches out to Sherlock Holmes seeking his advice on whether she should take the new position when her prospective employer has demanded that she cut her hair as part of the job, arousing her suspicions because of the strange nature of the request and the isolated location of the estate where she would be employed. Holmes and Watson take the case.
Sherlock Holmes IV is a direct descendant of the famed detective whose daring exploits were so vividly chronicled by Dr. John Watson and related to us by Arthur Conan Doyle.
“Witty and clever, with a whole new cast of characters to support this new Holmes and this new Watson. They live in a small boutique hotel on Lincoln Road called Fleming House (named after Sherlock the IV's love for James Bond author Ian Fleming). Holmes paces about in the penthouse while Watson (yes, he's a direct descendant of Dr. Watson) manages Fleming House. The cast of supporting characters, from the unseen tempestuous Chef Hilario to the gay manager of the Crown Colony restaurant in the hotel, Bjorn Karlsen, who has to put up with the chef, are refreshing and contemporary.”
