In Michael Robertson's The Baker Street Translation, Reggie and Nigel Heath—brothers who lease law offices at 221B Baker Street in London, England and answer mail addressed to the location's most famous resident, Sherlock Holmes—find themselves pulled once again into a case straight out of Arthur Conan Doyle. An elderly American heiress wants to leave her entire fortune to Sherlock Holmes. A translator wants Sherlock Holmes to explain a nursery rhyme. And Robert Buxton—Reggie's rival for the love of actress Laura Rankin—has gone missing. Reggie must suss all these things out before an upcoming British royal event. If he doesn't, something very bad will happen to everyone at that event—and to Laura. Fast-paced, exciting, and clever, this is the perfect mystery for aficionados of the current craze for all things Sherlockian.

One, two, unbuckle my shoe.
That one went through...

Reviews

Praise for The Baker Street Translation

"Lots of Holmes references, both to the canon and to contemporary Holmes worship, plus lots of action and sparkling commentary equals great fun." - Booklist

"Dexterous plotting lifts Robertson’s third contemporary mystery centered on barrister Reggie Heath and his unusual mandate: [responding] to the many letters addressed to Sherlock Holmes." - Publishers Weekly

"Readers who know not to take the proceedings seriously will find the deadpan tone perfectly suited to the whimsically improbable developments." - Kirkus Reviews

"A great dive into a new series." - Criminal Element
