Gemma Doyle and Jayne Wilson are busy managing the
Sherlock Holmes Bookshop and Emporium on Baker Street and adjoining Mrs.
Hudson’s Tea Room in anticipation of the store’s upcoming book signing
with the illustrious Renalta Van Markoff, author of the controversial
Hudson and Holmes mystery series. But during the author Q&A session,
dedicated Sherlockian Donald Morris verbally attacks Renalta and her
series for disgracing Sherlock’s legacy, only to be publicly humiliated
when the author triumphantly lashes back and gains the upper hand. That
is until Renalta collapses on the table―dead.
Donald insists he didn’t do it and pleads to his friends to clear his
name. Fortunately, Gemma and Jayne have no shortage of suspects between
author’s bullied personal assistant, her frustrated publicist, the
hapless publisher, a handsome rare book dealer, an obsessively rabid
fan, and a world of other Sherlock enthusiasts with strong objections to
Renalta’s depiction of the Great Detective. It’s up to the shrewd
sleuthing duo to eliminate the impossible and deduce the truth before
the West London police arrest an innocent man in Body on Baker Street, the second Sherlock Homes Bookshop mystery perfect for fans of Miranda James and Kate Carlisle.
