Publisher's Summary

We are in London in 1890, and the British Museum plans to exhibit the contents, brought specially to London, of a newly excavated Egyptian tomb. The event is disturbed by the murder of a museum watchman. A suspect is quickly found, a young museum assistant, caught red-handed with a bloodstained knife. But things are not so simple; behind this apparently clear case Holmes uncovers, piece by piece, just as did the archaeologists, a complicated story of blackmail, violence, and treachery that at every step threatens him, and Watson, with deadly consequences.

See how events ranging from the British Embassy in Cairo to a theatre in East London can baffle and confuse, until Holmes and Watson find the last pieces of the puzzle and must fight for their lives.

A real Holmesian mystery

I really liked this one, it felt like it could have been written by Conan Doyle himself. Faithful to the characters and the era, and with a great mystery, it was a a truly enjoyable book.

I really liked how complicated was the plot and how masterful was Holmes at solving it.

David Bufton did a wonderful job with the narration.

Another Home Run for Johanna Rieke

I've written before and I'll write again that Johanna Rieke is one of the best Sherlock Holmes pastiche writers of this era. Her latest book continues to prove that fact. The story is compelling and it captures the spirit of the early 1890's with perfection. Narrator David Bufton turns in another outstanding read. I highly recommend this book!
