A shocking death revives the past in David Fable’s The Murder of Sherlock Holmes, a refreshing new take on the iconic detective.
The year is 1912, and Sherlock Holmes lies dead on the coroner’s table as a shaken Dr. Watson witnesses his autopsy. In the search for Holmes’s murderer, Watson is joined by Christopher Hudson, the 21 year old son of Mrs. Hudson, Holmes’ former landlady at 221B Baker Street. Christopher, recently graduated from Oxford, grew up at Baker Street during the legendary years when Holmes and Watson occupied the flat upstairs.
Watson and Christopher explore the grimy East End of London and encounter characters from the original Conan Doyle stories such as PROFESSOR MORIARTY, now locked in a cell beneath Bethlem “Bedlam” Hospital for the Insane, INSPECTOR LESTRADE, who is now head of Scotland Yard, and WIGGINS, former leader of the orphan group known as the “Baker Street Irregulars,” who, these 30 years later, has become a major crime figure in the East End.
Alternately narrated by Watson and Christopher, Fable’s authentic language and suspenseful tone successfully capture the appeal of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original canon, masterfully taking the tradition of Sherlock Holmes into the twentieth century.
