The Secret Journal of Dr. Watson is mysterious, intriguing, and fun, a chilling and thought-provoking exploration of a period of Russian history that engenders a great deal of speculation. Of course, we know that Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson never actually went to Ekaterinburg to find the Romanovs. Or do we? Phil Growick's excellent novel will make you believe they did. - Amy Thomas, The Baker Street Babes
For the first time, a very special hardcover edition combining two of the most intricately intertwined Sherlock Holmes adventures.
In The Secret Journal of Dr. Watson: it’s the height of the Russian Revolution; Holmes and Watson are sent by the British PM, David Lloyd George, deep into the nascent Soviet Union to rescue the Imperial Romanovs before they’re assassinated by the Bolsheviks. But with Lenin, the Cheka, MI-6 and “The Black Faction” at their throats, who can rescue Holmes and Watson?
And if they succeed, what will ultimately happen to them all?
Can we believe that Holmes meets his death? And with a stunning surprise ending, how many questions will be left unanswered?
In The Revenge of Sherlock Holmes, those questions are answered.
But how does Prohibition in America, the birth of organized crime there with murderers like Lucky Luciano and Bugsy Siegel, impact Watson, the Romanovs and the man who claims to be Holmes?
And once again, all these tension-filled events keep racing towards another incredible surprise ending.
