I really enjoyed
The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes: A Daughter of Sherlock Holmes Mystery
, winner of
the 2017 RT Reviewers' Choice Award for Best Historical Mystery, so I'm looking forward to reading the
second book in this series,
A Study in Treas
on. A third book will be coming out in June 2019: The
Disappearance of Alistair Ainsworth.
Joanna Blalock is the daughter of the great detective himself and Irene Adler. In book one of these historical mysteries, she and her companion,
Dr. John Watson, Jr., investigate murder at the
highest levels of British society. The year is 1914, and Joanna is a skilled nurse, one of the
few professions of the time that allow her to use her keen mind and incredible insight. When she and her 10-year-old
son witness a man fall to his death, apparently by suicide, they meet the elderly Dr. John Watson and his
charming, handsome son, Dr. John Watson, Jr. Impressed by her forensic and deductive skills, the Watsons ask her to
join them as the third member of their investigative team.
"Fans of Sherlock Holmes will be thrilled to meet his fearless and brilliant daughter, Joanna. Once again the
game's afoot, and a new Holmes and Watson unite to solve the unsolvable in this delightful adventure by
Leonard Goldberg." --Tess Gerritsen
"Adventure, murder, family secrets, and intrigue abound in this novel, which has incredible characters who are
charming, cunning and smart as a whip. Goldberg has successfully intertwined historical facts with fiction, and
has created a must-read novel for fans of historical mystery and of Sherlock Holmes." --RT Book Reviews
"The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes is a nicely rendered tale that will appeal to Sherlockian readers of all shades.
The language and settings are faithful to Arthur Conan Doyle's original stories. John Jr. acts as narrator rather
than Dr. Watson, and Joanna is an alluring replacement for the great detective.... The rigorous, well-placed
clues, an unexpected and satisfying climactic twist, and the likable Joanna make this a welcome addition to the
Sherlock Holmes world." --Mystery Scene
