Goodreads asked Mel Skubich:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Mel Skubich 'Murder, Mayhem & Magic: The Casebook of Alistair Gordon' was inspired by watching The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes with Jeremy Brett as Holmes with Stevie Conradi. We wanted to write our own Victorian Murder Mysteries but felt reluctant to 'just' write another pastiche. So eventually Alistair Gordon and his student and fellow lodger Jerome Garibaldi were born.
