Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Michael Robertson has delighted mystery readers and Sherlock Holmes aficionados everywhere with his charming and innovative Baker Street mystery series, where brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath are charged with answering letters to Holmes that arrive at their law office, located at 221B Baker Street. Now, Reggie and Nigel are back in a case that would confound even Sherlock himself. An exhibition of vintage Sherlock Holmes letters has opened at the Marylebone Hotel. As Reggie and his beloved Laura embark on a pre-wedding trip, someone from Reggie and Nigels past—someone whom they thought was long gone—reappears, causing a whole slew of new problems for the brothers. Written with Robertsons characteristic charm, Moriarty Returns a Letter is a standout mystery in a much-loved series, perfect for fans of the smash hit television shows "Sherlock" and "Elementary." 

Review:

"You don't have to be a Sherlockian to enjoy Robertson's excellent fourth Baker Street mystery (after 2013's The Baker Street Translation). Early chapters, including one set in 1893 in which a Pinkerton agent attempts to save his own life by claiming to be Professor Moriarty, set the groundwork for the well-constructed plot that follows. In the book's present-day of 1998, London barrister Reggie Heath, who leases 221B Baker Street on condition that he deal with letters addressed to Sherlock Holmes, is still recovering months later from the trauma of having been the target of 'schizophrenic savant' Darla Rennie, who believed he was actually Holmes. Blaming Heath for the death of her notorious ancestor, Professor Moriarty, Rennie kidnapped Heath's love interest, Laura Rankin, before apparently falling to her death in the Thames. Robertson does a nice job of playing with the notion that both Holmes and Moriarty were real in an entry that exhibits the rich possibilities of his premise. Agent: Kirby Kim, William Morris Endeavor." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
