A reader may start this book expecting the focus to be on the mystery. After all, the characters are named Janet Watson and Sara Holmes (and Jenna Hudson/Hudson Realty for the original landlady, Mrs. Hudson): it's a mystery novel, right? Yes, there's a mystery, but it comes in more towards the end of the book, and I'm guessing mystery lovers won't be entirely satisfied with it. This book has the feel of setting the scene for future books in the series. I'm guessing it's set in the late 2020s. We learn about the New Civil War and about Watson adjusting to civilian life with a prosthetic arm that isn't good enough for her to resume her career as a surgeon. We also get to see Sara Holmes through Watson's eyes, but since Holmes spends much of the book keeping secrets, there are times when she feels almost incidental to the book. I enjoyed it as a speculation about a near-future United States and I like Watson (she loves fine journals and fountain pens!), but the world, the characters, and the mysteries will need more development.

Is this an alternate world Holmes/Watson story? A semi-typical mystery with a lesbian protagonist? A nre future look at a world we might want to visit? Yes and yes and yes, but also no and no and no. Say what? You will have to read it and find out! But, that's OK, you will love it! Be forewarned though, you *will* want more! ( )
