USA Today bestselling author Sherry Thomas turns the story of the renowned Sherlock Holmes upside down.

With her inquisitive mind, Charlotte Holmes has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of the fairer sex in upper-class society. But even she never thought that she would become a social pariah, an outcast fending for herself on the mean streets of London.

When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. She’ll have help from friends new and old, but in the end, it will be up to Charlotte, under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, to challenge society’s expectations and match wits against an unseen mastermind.

Sherry Thomas is one of the most acclaimed historical romance authors writing today, having won the Rita Award two years running and appearing on innumerable “Best of the Year” lists, including those of Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews, Library Journal, Dear Author, and All about Romance.

Kate Reading has recorded hundreds of audiobooks across many genres, over a thirty year plus career. Audie Awards: The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter (mystery), Breasts (non-fiction), Bellwether (fiction), and Words of Radiance (fantasy), co-narrated with her husband, Michael Kramer. Among other awards, she has been recognized with: the ALA Booklist best of 2019 for Bowlaway (fiction), AudioFile Magazine Voice of the Century, Earphones Awards, Narrator of the Year, Best Voice in Science Fiction and Fantasy, and Publisher’s Weekly’s Listen-Up Award. She records at her home studio, Madison Productions, Inc., in Maryland.

Reviews

“The various characters introduced are quite interesting and the plot lines are great.”

“Thomas has turned the story of the beloved investigator on its head while keeping the details on point.”

“Thomas takes Holmes down false paths that also lead the reader astray as she attempts to solve the crimes…There’s one surprise after another as each layer is unwrapped. The use of Doyle’s characters adds flavor to the story.”

“Narrator Kate Reading is masterful in her portrayals in this clever historical mystery with a fabulous twist…Reading’s aristocratic British voices are spot-on, and her acting is outstanding. She depicts all types of characters—funny, touching, romantic, suspenseful, haughty, old, young, wealthy, or poor—with the same believability. This is an exceptionally fine audio experience, with a story that will grab listeners from the get-go…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”

“Thomas has come up with a completely new, brilliantly conceived take on the iconic detective…[with] a plot worthy of the master at his best.”

A Study in Scarlet Women introduces Charlotte Holmes and a cast of other characters based on the classic stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; as the series continues, these characters find themselves embroiled in ever more complicated situations that test both the genius and humanity of Lady Holmes.”

“Gender bending is just the first sign that unusual happenings are afoot in this origin story for a revamped Sherlock Holmes series by bestselling author Thomas.”

“Those looking for a very different Sherlockian lead will be rewarded.”

“Clever and absorbing…Thomas’ gorgeous prose and expert characterizations shine.”
