Gemma Halliday, NYT Bestselling Author describes The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife as "a vivid picture and transports you back in time, in what I'm sure will become a bestseller....A classic in the making!"

Arthur Conan Doyle provided few details on Holmes' boyhood. His ancestors were country squires, his grandmother was the sister of the French artist Vernet, and he had a brother named Mycroft - seven years his senior. Recently, a cache of documents has been discovered detailing, in Sherlock's own hand, his early forays into criminal investigation. 

The Adventure of the Murdered Midwife is the first of these early cases.

Only weeks into his first year at Eton, Sherlock's father calls him and his brother back to Underbyrne, the ancestral estate. The village midwife has been found with a pitchfork in her back in the estate's garden, and Mrs. Holmes has been accused of the murder. Can Sherlock find the true killer in time to save her from the gallows?

About the Author

Liese Sherwood-Fabre was born in Texas and knew she was destined to write when she got an "A" in the second grade for her story about Dick, Jane, and Sally's ruined picnic. For several years, she focused her talents on professional writing, earning a PhD in Sociology from Indiana University and working on various policy and research projects for the federal government for thirty years. After ten years abroad in this capacity (serving in Honduras, Mexico, and Russia), she returned to her native Texas with her family. She has been writing for about twenty years and garnered a number of awards, including a Pushcart Prize nomination. Most recently, she has turned a childhood interest in Sherlock Holmes into a series of novels relating to the previously unknown story of his development into the world's greatest consulting detective. Her research essays into Sherlock and Victorian England are published across the globe and have appeared in the Baker Street Journal, the premiere publication of the Baker Street Irregulars.
