Praise for Son of Holmes and John Lescroart

“A riveting thriller.” —Booklist

“Detective fans will lap up the details of
Lupa’s [Holmesian] heritage.” —Publishers Weekly

“Raymond Chandler once wrote that the test of a first-rate murder mystery is whether you would keep reading it if the last chapter — and the revelation of whodunit — were missing. In the matter of John Lescroart, I would keep reading any of his books, even without that last chapter.” —Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“Amusing and intriguing.” —Los Angeles Herald-Examiner
