Released today – Irregular Lives: The Untold Story of Sherlock Holmes and the Baker Street Irregulars

16 Nov

Sherlock Holmes’s relationship with the band of street Arabs known at the Baker Street Irregulars has largely been untold … until now.

Holmes sometimes relied upon a gang of adolescent boys and girls who he recruited from the slums of London. Indeed, some of Sherlock Holmes’s most bizarre cases involved the irregulars: a hideous execution of a man who had been strapped to the barrel of cannon, a fiend who hoped he could live forever on the blood of others, and the largest jewel robbery in Britain.

Irregular Lives begins in post WWI London, when Holmes visits a mysterious photography exhibit that has him recall adventures with Wiggins, Ugly, Kate, and other members of his urban army. But, his reminiscences are merely a prelude to a thrilling adventure that begins when a jolly reunion with the irregulars abruptly erupts in a terrible tragedy.

If you were ever curious about how Holmes shaped and changed the lives of the irregulars, and how they transformed his life … then, this is the book for you.

This is historical fiction at its best, as well as a deeply engrossing adventure that draws the reader in until the last page.” –  Elizabeth Varadan

Irregular Lives is available from all good bookstores including The Strand Magazine,Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.
