A Study In Crimson

A Study in Crimson is the second adventure of Mrs. Watson and Emily Fanshaw. Already dubbed ‘The Female Sherlock Holmes’ Molly Carr’s character is proving very popular with Holmes fans. Here is the review from the leading Sherlockian Group in Wales – The Deerstalkers of Welshpool.

“Molly Carr has produced another book about her two female detectives, mutated from minor characters in the Holmes stories. I think it helps if you have read the first book [The Sign of Fear], as that explains the strange hypothesis that Watson was a fake.

The book is more a series of short adventures than a novel. These show imagination, and a wicked sense of humour. Most of the results of the investigations are accidental, rather than being due to the skill of the offbeat female detectives.

The locations range from New York to Baden Baden and Geneva, in addition to London and Scotland, and are nicely drawn. As before, Molly uses characters from the Sherlock Holmes ā€“ and other ā€“ detective stories to people the adventures.”

A Study In Crimson is available from all good bookstores worldwide including Amazon USA, Amazon UK, and in a variety of formats including Kindle, Kobo and iBooks for the iPad.
