Overview

The redoubtable Amelia Watson - the second wife of
Dr. John H. Watson of Baker Street fame - returns for thirteen light-hearted adventures whose puzzles
would tax the ingenuity of the master himself!
Whether soaring over England in a hot air balloon;
sailing the seas on board ship; journeying to Scotland on behalf of His Majesty himself; becoming enmeshed in a Royal conspiracy at Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show; or following the clues of an ancient treasure hunt through the streets of Edwardian London, Amelia Watson is never far from a mystery, and never fails to solve the most baffling of conundrums.

This excellent thirteen story collection provides a fascinating spin on the Holmes mythos. In the Introduction John Shirley explains that Holmes mentions that his chronicler Watson had a second wife (see The Adventures of the Blanched Soldier) whom he was married to in January 1903. Using that footnote Mr. Shirley provides the Baker Street crowd with a wonderful collection in which Amelia Watson solves the cases. Of the thirteen tales, twelve have been in other publications. All the entries are fun and use a real historical item, person or place, event to anchor the tales. Sherlock makes a few appearances with one amusing moment when he steals the dress of the very tall Amelia so he can go undercover while Mycroft appears more frequently. Also showing up is Lestrade who appreciates Mrs. Watson¿s skills. Fans of the great detective will relish this strong compilation as Amelia recognizes her competitor for John's affections is Sherlock and John is envious that not only his friend is a superior sleuth so is his wife whom he adores.---------- Harriet Klausner
