—Emily Brightwell, author of the Mrs. Jeffries Victorian mystery series
"The Revenant of Thraxton Hall is a delight. It’s a treat to meet the Great Detective’s creator (Arthur Conan Doyle) as a sleuth in his own right. And partnered with Oscar Wilde—what a bold and wonderful conceit!"
—John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author of The Ophelia Cut
"Entwistle gives the man who created Sherlock Holmes his own mystery to solve in this amazing novel. Arthur Conan Doyle proves himself worthy of Holmes’s mantle as he and his clever friend Oscar Wilde untangle a decades-old mystery to save a beautiful young woman’s life."
—Victoria Thompson, author of Murder in Chelsea
"Thrilling, suspenseful and utterly captivating, The Revenant of Thraxton Hall ingeniously combines historical fact with creative imagination. Conan Doyle and Wilde are a unique and lively recombination of Holmes and Watson, and once again, the game is most assuredly afoot. Don’t miss it!"

More Praise for Vaughn Entwistle:
“Entwistle’s prose is eloquent and evocative without sacrificing concision. His staging of Victorian London—its memorial parks, stately homes, fog-shrouded streets is cloaked in suspense, shown through an extensive use of detail and sensory imagery….A magnificently written, provocative novel.” –Kirkus Reviews on Angel of Highgate
“Daringly original…Entwistle’s cheerfully confident prose sparkles and unsettles by turns.” –Historical Novel Society on Angel of Highgate
