Praise

Finalist – 2013 Governor General’s Literary Award (Children’s Text)

“And so the end comes to the beginning of the story of the world’s most beloved detective….The series has courageously woven together famous people, popular myths and the street-level views of London. The mysteries, themselves, contain the illusive clues so reminiscent of Doyle’s work…. The story is ripe with premonitions…. Readers … will find this a satisfactory and hang-on-to-your-seat read. It was sad to know this is the final installment….”
–Highly Recommended, CM Magazine

“…Peacock concludes his stellar saga with a final mystery…. This is a solid period mystery. Peacock once again uses London as a character…. Such characters as Irene Doyle, Malefactor (who will become Moriarty), Lestrade, and even a whiff of Watson all contribute to a feeling of authenticity … this is a strong story. The ending is exciting and unexpected. This is an excellent conclusion to a wonderful series.”
