The Counterfeit Detective
Receiving a telegram from America warning him of an imposter using his name and reputation, Holmes heads for New York, a city entirely outside his comfort zone...
An anonymous letter brings strange news to Baker Street; there is an impostor Sherlock Holmes at work in New York City, solving cases and taking society by storm. The real Sherlock Holmes wastes no time in crossing the Atlantic to confront the charlatan.
But he and Watson find more than they bargained for: the counterfeit detective is missing, his landlady has been horribly murdered, and his clients are refusing to reveal their secrets…
