Barrie Roberts has worked as a criminal lawyer for over twenty years. He is also the author of a series of popular Sherlock Holmes pastiches and books on true crime and the paranormalFrom Booklist:
A mysterious coded message in the newspaper draws Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson into their latest adventure. Holmes believes the message indicates a dangerous plot involving the Scottish pretender to the throne is afoot in London. A dead body in Regents Park and another in a London hotel--both stabbed to death by the same Scottish knife--underscore Holmes' suspicion. Then he and Watson are visited by a representative of President Roosevelt who asks Holmes to find the killer of the two murdered men. The killer, the representative explains, is likely after a hoard of gold reputed to have been hidden in Scotland during the American War of Independence. The gold, if found, could be used by a subversive group plotting to overthrow the American government. Holmes and Watson immediately head to Scotland to unmask the killer and save America. Watson is initially as puzzled as readers are likely to be by the convoluted plot, but the story is cleverly resolved and will delight fans of the fictitious British sleuth, who is at his supercilious, brilliant best.
