9781781165416: Sherlock Holmes: The Stuff of Nightmares

It's the autumn of 1890, and a spate of bombings has hit London. The newspapers are full of fevered speculation about anarchists, anti-monarchists and Fenians. But one man suspects an even more sinister hand behind the violence.  Sherlock Holmes believes Professor Moriarty is orchestrating a nationwide campaign of terror, but to what end? At the same time, a bizarrely garbed figure has been spotted on the rooftops and in the grimy back alleys of the capital.  He moves with the extraordinary agility of a latter-day Spring-heeled Jack.  He possesses weaponry and armour of unprecedented sophistication.  He is known only by the name Baron Cauchemar, and he appears to be a scourge of crime and villainy. But is this masked man truly the force for good that he seems?  Is he connected somehow to the bombings?  Holmes and his faithful companion Dr. Watson are about to embark on one of their strangest and most exhilarating adventures yet.

Review:

"If you’re craving more classic Holmes with just a twist of modernity,The Stuff of Nightmares will be quite the treat." - Nerdophiles

"For the lover of both steampunk and Sherlock Holmes, this blend of a book is a dream come true." - Geek Girl

“Like any good Holmes tale, I was kept guessing for most of The Stuff of Nightmares until all the clues and personal stories began to come together for a very satisfying conclusion.” – Geek Dad 

“An entertaining adaptation of the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle series.” – The Geek Girl Project 

“Fast-paced and action-packed to the extent that putting it down won’t be an option. Lovegrove has honed his craft well and brings the best to the fore in this book, making it an enticing and worthwhile read for fans of Holmes, steampunk or those simply wanting to be entertained.” – Adventures in SciFi Publishing 

"a very intelligent, well-crafted novel that does justice to the characters, both Conan Doyle’s and Lovegrove’s own." - Ravenous Monster

"The story is skillfully crafted and wraps the reader up as tightly in Watson’s narrative of the adventure as Doyle’s stories did." - Pop Mythology

"Lovegrove has clearly enjoyed his time with the great detective" - Fantasy Matters 

"The story is well written. I know the mystery writer is a good one when I end up genuinely surprised at the twists and turns of the story. There were several things I didn't see coming, and several points that made me smile and shake my head at how clever Mr. Lovegrove is." - Punkettes
