A brand-new Sherlock Holmes story finds Watson worried about his friend

Following a prolonged cocaine binge, Sherlock Holmes is closer to death than Dr. Watson has ever seen him before. Fearing for his friend's wellbeing, he arranges for the the pair to repair to France, to enjoy a leisurely convalescence at the home of Holmes's old friend Henri Gillet. But even before they reach Paris they become embroiled in a perilous mystery of the like even they have never encountered before. Who, for example, is the strange man with the peculiar fascination for raindrops? And why does someone want one of France's most beloved novelists dead? Before the final explosive confrontation, Holmes and Watson must tangle with a cold and calculating brotherhood for which no crime is too ghastly, especially if it helps to further their own sinister ends.

About the Author:

Steve Hayes is a screenwriter and a prolific writer of westerns. He lives in Huntington Beach, California. David Whitehead is also a western writer. They previously collaborated on Sherlock Holmes and the Queen of Diamonds.

From Publishers Weekly:

The capable second Sherlock Holmes pastiche from western authors Hayes and Whitehead (after 2012's Sherlock Holmes and the Queen of Diamonds) finds the sleuth shut away in Baker Street, bored and depressed, with no cases to intrigue him. Watson comes to his rescue by insisting they take a holiday in France, where a friend—politician Henri Gillet—has a country villa. Holmes agrees to go because he's eager to meet a correspondent he much admires, novelist Jules Verne, who lives in Amiens, which is near the villa. On arrival, Holmes and Watson are horrified to see a masked man shoot Verne in the leg during a street brawl, but Holmes soon subdues the gunman, who turns out to be Verne's mentally disturbed nephew, Gaston. After interviewing Gaston in jail, Holmes gets on the trail of a sinister organization with the cryptic initials V.D.C. that may want Verne dead. The plot builds slowly to a satisfying, if predictable, ending. (Oct.)
