It's the season of peace and goodwill, but a Victorian Christmas is no holiday for the world's most popular detective in this new book from Bonnie MacBird, author of the bestselling Sherlock Holmes novel Art in the Blood.

It's Christmas 1890, and games are afoot. In a packed Oxford Street, a man tries to kidnap a young woman's child, but Holmes and Watson leap to their rescue and the assailant escapes empty handed. Who would do such a thing? And more importantly - will he strike again?

From the depths of London's workhouses to the pinnacle of a glittering Christmas Eve party in Mayfair, this is to be a Christmas that will require not only Holmes's celebrated scientific method, but also the bravery for which he and Watson are renowned. And the final solution will demand something more from the Great Detective - something Watson has never before observed in his friend.

About the Author

Bonnie MacBird is passionate about Victorian London and Sherlock Holmes. She lives in an 1890 building right off Baker Street, and fell in love with Holmes as a schoolgirl in her native California. After many years in the entertainment industry as a film executive, Emmy winning producer and screenwriter, she now writes the critically acclaimed Sherlock Holmes Adventure Series for HarperCollins, bringing the much-loved detective back, traditional style, in full-length adventures. Meticulous research, a flair for deductions and a decided sense of humour have turned these into fan favourites. ART IN THE BLOOD was translated into twenty languages and was followed by UNQUIET SPIRITS, THE DEVIL'S DUE and THE THREE LOCKS.
