I am a big fan of Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson so when I heard about this book I was very excited . Sherlock Holmes is setting up home in Bakers Street in London and is needing someone to take care of the day to day running of his household so he employs the very able Mrs Hudson. Mrs Hudson brings her own help in the form of a young girl called Flottie who has had some recent trouble by the hands of a member of a household she previously worked for , she is helped by a street urchin called Scraggs who often helps Mrs Hudson with little jobs. Mrs Hudson is not just an excellent woman at managing a household , she also has a keen eye on what is happening around her and misses little! The majority of the story takes part in a thickly fogged London but there are more exotic countries weaved into the basis of the story as someone has recently come back from far away shores with a curse on his head that seems to follow him wherever he goes , his aim is to get Holmes's help before it is too late or it could prove fatal. I loved this story ! The entire household is filled with interesting characters , each one valuable in their own way to solving mysteries and crimes in a city filled with all forms of criminals. This is a must read for all Sherlock Holmes fans !
I received my copy of this book through Netgalley.
