Overview

The Brothers of Baker Street (Baker Street Letters Series #2) by Michael Robertson

"A delightful romp...The last third of the novel is one of the finest, scariest sequences in current crime fiction... For anglophiles, crime-o-philes, and all fans of wonderful writing." —Booklist (starred)

When brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath choose 221B Baker Street as the location for their law office, they don't realize that their new office space comes with one huge stipulation; namely, they must answer the letters sent to Sherlock Holmes, the most famous resident of that address. While Reggie is working on a new case involving one of London's Black Cab drivers, the letters to Sherlock Holmes are piling up. There's even one from someone who claims to be the descendent of Professor James Moriarty. With a case that would have puzzled even Sherlock himself, The Brothers of Baker Street is sure to please mystery fans, whatever their address.

The book The Brothers of Baker Street is a very interesting publication that keeps you wanting to read more. The main Character of the book, Reggie Health, is a barrister. His office is in the building in which the fictional character Sherlock Holmes was said to use. One thing is for sure, there are a lot of letters. In order to keep renting his office, the condition is that every letter must be answered. But that, however, is just a minor detail to this rollercoaster ride of a story. As you take this Journey with Reggie health you see good times and bad times. Defending a case of murder, Reggie finds himself trying to solve his own thoughts and find his way out of certain situations while working to get charges dropped, while his morals and doubts stand in the way. During the read, you feel as if you have become part of the story. You are driving, thinking and solving along with Reggie as the plot of the story unfolds. Around every corner there is a new surprise or detail. But, at the same time, nothing is really out in the open. Since you only know as much as the main character, the story has you trying to solve the mystery yourself. Overall, you will want to keep reading until the conclusion. In my opinion, The Brothers of Baker Street is a good book for anyone who likes mystery. It takes a couple of chapters before it gets interesting, but when it does become interesting you realize it was well worth the wait! Also, I have never read the first part of the series, I did not know there was a first part until I finished the book. I recommend you read The Baker Street Letters before The Brothers of Baker Street because you will have better knowledge of what exactly is going on in the beginning of the story. I personally don’t read many mysteries, but I really enjoyed this book. I think you will too! BL

In 1997 Reggie Heath has leased 221B Baker Street, but the "Balmy Barrister" as the tabloids call him knows the stipulation in the rental agreement includes answering letters to Holmes. His last activity in that endeavor due to his younger brother Nigel lead to Reggie losing his money, his girl (actress Laura Rankin who is hanging with Lord Buxton) and his self respect (see The Baker Street Letters). However, as Rafferty of the Committee reminds him he must answer the letters or be evicted. He calls Nigel in Los Angeles to tell him to respond to the letters which include one from an alleged Moriarty descendent he sends to his sibling. Meanwhile solicitor Darla Rennie hires Reggie to represent Neil Walters, a London Black Cab driver, accused of murdering two Americans. Reggie works diligently on his client's defense, but that places him in peril. He needs Nigel to come to the rescue, but his brother is across the pond and continent while all roads lead to and from Moriarty. This is a diabolically brilliant thriller that Holmes and Watson would struggle to solve let alone the Heath brothers. Fast-paced and loaded with action, the Baker Street Irregulars and anyone who enjoys a terrific nefarious scheme will relish the escapades of The Brothers of Baker Street as once again Nigel seems headed to another spread in tabloid hell if he should live so long to read it.

This second mystery in a series about Reggie and Nigel Heath, is a serious mystery spoof on the Sherlock Holmes mysteries.  In 1997 London, the Heath brothers have leased 221 Baker Street for their law offices.  As part of their lease, they must send a form letter to everyone who sends them a letter addressed to the legendary Sherlock Holmes.  Right now, that's about all that is happening at their offices.  Then the lovely barrister, Darla Rennie asks Reggie to defend a London Black Cabbie against a murder charge. In doing so, Reggie gets himself deep into a deadly situation concerning all of the Black Cabbies.   This mystery has lots of charm and humor mixed in with serious threats, chases, and an unusual psychological workshop.  A letter signed by a "Dr Moriarty" comes to Baker Street sending Reggie onto a clue to save his client, but it also seems to threaten his own life. The London Black Cabbies play an important roll in solving the crime also. Clever take on the Sherlock Holmes theme!  Looking forward to reading more in this series!
