“Shadowwraith” is the last of the Sun and Shadow books by Tracy Revels.
A ‘ghost’ leaving gifts for a distraught young woman starts off a terrifying case that rockets from Whitechapel to the famous crypts in Palermo, Sicily and sees Sherlock Holmes’s immortal soul in peril.
“Shadowwraith” is every bit as exciting and thrilling as the two previous books.
Even with the supernatural nature of the book, Holmes and Watson are very traditionally drawn and the friendship is strong. The supporting characters are well-drawn and interesting. Dr. Revels’s depiction of Mrs. Hudson is a delight.
As with the other books, historical figures abound. I can’t say whom without given too much away, but Dr. Revels’s gives life to characters long dead – in more ways than one!
I highly recommend this book.
