Mrs Hudson and the Lazarus Testament
A dark mystery for Sherlock Holmes and of course Mrs Hudson!
A man is accidentally knocked down outside 221B Baker Street by a carriage. His dying words are clear: he has seen a man rise from the grave.
At the same time a visitor arrives with a mystery of unparalleled international importance. The Viscount Wrexham is missing, presumed dead, in strange circumstances.
I seem to be on a Holmes streak these days, probably because I'm waiting for spring to appear on this mountaintop. I have a couple of months until my landscape turns from white, to green and brown, so I'm reaching for the familiar.

Thoroughly enjoyable well-written mystery. Hoping for a Book Four.

As an avid Sherlock Holmes fan, this is the first time I have tried any of the 'alternative' stories because I'd hate to have Conan Doyle's work ruined. I've been immensely impressed with the set of 3 stories in this series.
Written from the point of view of Mrs Hudson who is every bit as clever as Holmes, the stories take on a fascinating twist while retaining the language and feel of the original works.
