Just a quick message that my, ahem, slightly alternative take on Sherlock Holmes, A House Of Mirrors, is available for 99p/99c for the next few days (August 10-13) on Amazon US and UK. If you’ve ever wondered what Mrs Hudson would have to say about life at 221B Baker Street, now you can find out!
It’s also a featured book at Book Hippo today, along with works by some other people you may have heard of. I’m rubbing shoulders with Neil Gaiman, no less!
The book blurb:
‘What is your profession, Mr Holmes?’
When Nell Villiers’ policeman husband vanishes on a routine case, her life is wrecked. Placed under protection by Inspector Lestrade, Nell is ripped from her old life and her own secret police work. Instead she must live as a widow, Mrs Hudson, in a safe house: 221B Baker Street.
Two years on, with the case still unsolved, Nell vows to defy Lestrade and use her skills to discover the truth. She takes a lodger to cover her tracks; a young man called Sherlock Holmes. How could she know what would happen?
‘It’s always been fun before – but now the police are the enemy…’
