Sherlock Holmes Fan wins Weekend on Baker Street

Kirsten Johnson was one of the Sherlock Holmes fans that took part in the Guinness Worlds Record attempt in July organised by MX Publishing. She got an entry into the prize draw and got an amazing prize!

Kirsten won a weekend for two at the Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes Hotel on Baker Street.

Prizes, competitions and more on the Sherlock Holmes Books Facebook Page.

On 1st Decmber.
When misadventure led a schoolboy in London to employment at Baker Street, few could have guessed where his introduction to Sherlock Holmes would lead. But as the lad matures and he finds himself caught in the middle of a murder investigation, his friendship with Holmes and Watson lures him into the role of detective. ‘Billy’ documents his experiences, and soon his sleuthing skills not only bring him to another murder, but also lay the foundation for his metamorphosis into a famous mystery writer, the novelist the world now knows as Raymond Chandler.
Pre-Order on Amazon UK and soon all good bookstores from MX Publishing.

Coming out on 14th May - Sherlock Holmes and the Poisoned Penman is the 2nd book in a trilogy by Holmes writers Dan Andriacco and Kieran McMullen. Between them they have a dozen Holmes books and this collaboration has created a fascinating trilogy of novellas:

“In contrast to most tales involving Holmes, The Amateur Executioner takes us into an ambiguous and murky world where right and wrong aren’t always distinguishable. I look forward to reading more about Enoch Hale.”

Review of the first book from The Baker Street Society
“Amy Thomas’s ‘The Detective and the Woman’ takes us into the world of Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler. Yes’ it’s been done many times before, but not quite like this. The novel opens with the death of Godfrey Norton, Irene’s husband, his death is unlamented and at once we see a strong-willed independant woman be re-born after a constraining and unhappy marriage. She takes control of her own life once more, but in so doing becomes the focus of both a villain who is hell bent on her destruction and fortune and the rather more benign focus of Sherlock Holmes. 
The dialogue between Holmes and Irene fairly cracles with authenticity and is a major delight of this winning and charming novel. Posing as man and wife as they do in large sections of the novel gives plenty of room for by-play and intellectual sparring. Pleasingly, Holmes does not always get his own way with this most formidable of women, Irene beeing a good match for him in all departments. The account of the case is told alternately by both main characters and we get to read their innermost thoughts and weaknesses, Irene displays a softer side, a weaker side which is handled very well by Amy. The book just flows so well, the Florida/Fort Myers descriptive passages are lovingly conveyed. The other characters are delineated excellently from Barnett the solicitor to Thomas Edison and his household. It’s hard to believe that this is Amy’s first foray into Holmes literature, the quality throughout is of the highest. I loved it.”
