Overview

Aborting one attempt to sabotage Project: Tesseract, Sherlock Holmes � up to speed in his new life and spacetime continuum -- and Dr. Skye Chadwick -- hyperspatial physicist, Holmes' new "Watson" -- must catch a spy ring when they don't even know the ring's goal. Meanwhile Skye recovers from two nigh-fatal gunshot wounds.

A further complication is their relationship: the ups and downs between the pair are more than occasional clashes of demanding, eccentric personalities. Chadwick is in love with Holmes. Knowing his predilection for eschewing matters of the heart, she struggles to hide it, in order to maintain the friendship they DO have. Holmes also feels attraction � but fights it tooth and nail, refusing to admit it, even to himself. For it is not merely Skye�s work the spies may be after � but her life as well. Having lost Watson to the vagaries of spacetime, could he endure losing another companion?

Can they work out the intricacies of their relationship? Can they determine why the spy ring is after the tesseract? And -- most importantly -- can they stop it?

Sherlock Holmes like you've never seen him before – in modern America. Through an accident with Dr. Skye Chadwick's Tesseract machine (told in The Displaced Detective – The Arrival) Holmes ends up in our reality. A fictional character in our time stream, in his, he is very real. Asked to assist in an investigation, Holmes puts his cognitive abilities into high gear to find the master mind behind the sabotage of the Tesseract device. At the end of The Arrival, they have found several of the conspirators, but their leader and a few members remain at large. It's up to Skye and Holmes to find them. Stephanie Osborn has truly captured the essence of Sherlock Holmes and lovingly depicts him as a man with strong passions. He adapts well to the present, but much of the Victorian Gentleman remains. With the love and support of Skye Chadwick, he manages to find his way in a sometimes puzzling world. Skye Chadwick is as fascinating a character as Holmes. She's complex, brilliant and confuses the hell out of Holmes on more than one occasion. She is the perfect counterpart to Holmes. This fast paced novel draws the reader into a world where the improbable is possible. I greatly enjoyed The Displaced Detective – At Speed and highly recommend both books to any readers who like a great mystery and adventure. Fans of Sherlock Holmes will enjoy seeing their hero brought to life and updated.

I haven't read anything other than a technical manual in over 11 years. Then I came across the Displaced Detective Series of books and was intrigued. I have read the first two and love them! I recommend them to anyone who wants a good read, even if you are not a Sherlock Holmes fan - you will love these books. And if you are a Sherlock Holmes fan, you will love them more!

The Case of the Displaced Detective: At Speed by Stephanie Osborn is terrific.  A well-written second book in the series, this episode sees Holmes and Skye meld even closer as they solve the case.  It is very fast paced, with some prestigious guest stars.  I was on the edge of my seat until the very end.  It was terrific to read as Holmes developed into a more modern character, while keeping his basic moods and mannerisms.  Really, just too much fun.
