Carpenter and Quincannon

Carpenter and Quincannon take their rightful place next to Steed and Peel in this new series set in San Francisco at the end of the 19th century.  Working separate cases (while Sabina Carpenter holds John Quincannon off with one light hand), the detectives give readers a tour of The City the way it was.  Lowlifes abound, bars flourish and a man claiming to be Sherlock Holmes challenges them to resolve the issue before he does. Fans of Marcia’s Muller’s bestselling Sharon McCone novels and Bill Pronzini’s Nameless Detective series will love The Bughouse Affair, The Spook Lights Affair and more!
