Overview

A naval lieutenant commander contacts Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson, taking them to the the grisly site of the Dutch steamship Friesland, hoping that their expertise might stop an international incident. Soon the chase draws Holmes and Watson out of their familiar London to the dark and dangerous city of Devil's Cape, Louisiana, which Holmes describes as "a city that swallows law."

What mysteries does Devil's Cape hold for them? Corruption. Pirates. Danger. And more.

This 9,900 word novella, previously published in the anthology The Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, is now available as a stand-alone ebook, with a new "making of" afterward by the author.

Rob Rogers is best known as the author of Devil's Cape, a superhero thriller.

Praise for Devil's Cape:

“Now, the superhero novel has received its standard bearer, the one novel all others in the sub-genre will be compared to. That novel is Devil’s Cape by Rob Rogers.”
—William Gatevackes, Pop Matters

“There is NO WAY that this is Rob Rogers's first novel. This is a novel replete with the rewards of a lifetime of training, effort, and passion. Devil's Cape is a mesmerizing, seductive, and darkly moving piece of fiction that seamlessly, even gracefully, marries tactile reality with myth and magic to bring its own pulsating world to life. Beyond expectations, full of surprises, singing with resonance and emotion, Rogers has written a novel that first stabs the superhero genre in the back, then flips the body over and shocks it back to exhilarating life. What arises from this crime scene is a post-modern delight. Take the tour of Devil's Cape -- I guarantee you're going to like it here!”
—Greg Rucka, author of Whiteout, Checkmate, Patriot Acts, and more

    A fun short story

    Good writing and an engaging, if quite improbable, plot
