Art in the Blood by Bonnie MacBird
(Sherlock Holmes Adventures #1)
Historical, Mystery, Sherlockian
Mlle La Victoire, a beautiful French cabaret star writes that her illegitimate son by an English lord has disappeared, and she has been attacked in the streets of Montmartre.
Racing to Paris with Watson at his side, Holmes discovers the missing child is only the tip of the iceberg of a much larger problem. The most valuable statue since the Winged Victory has been violently stolen in Marseilles, and several children from a silk mill in Lancashire have been found murdered. The clues in all three cases point to a single, untouchable man.
Will Holmes recover in time to find the missing boy and stop a rising tide of murders? To do so he must stay one step ahead of a dangerous French rival and the threatening interference of his own brother, Mycroft.
What I thought
I have found that I am very picky when it comes to Sherlockian stories. If 2020 taught me anything that is it. I have gone through many and only liked a few. Most of them were never finished. I am soo happy to say that this one does not disappoint.
I was pulled into this story from the beginning. I loved the writing in this story it mimics Doyle’s well and it made me feel like I am really reading additional stories. The pacing was spot on I did not feel the story lag at any point.
If you enjoy sherlockian stories then I highly suggest you picking this one up.
I can not wait to pick up the next book in this series!
My Rating: /5
