The Conan Doyle Notes: The Secret of Jack the Ripper

The Conan Doyle Notes: The Secret of Jack the Ripper, uncovers clues as to “Why the Dog Did Not Bark in the Night.” Sherlock Holmes concluded that it was because the intruder was known to the dog. Madsen’s new mystery questions whether the identity of one of the greatest criminals of all time, Jack the Ripper, was deduced by Conan Doyle. Conan Doyle was already famous with his popular Sherlock Holmes stories when Jack the Ripper struck London in October 1888. Why was Conan Doyle silent about this case? Find out in The Conan Doyle Notes: The Secret of Jack the Ripper.

What a fascinating, believable, well-researched novel. It’s not only one mystery encircled by another, but a string of sub-mysteries that moves forward relentlessly and delightfully from beginning to end. The characters are convincing and the action and surprises move the suspense forward from page to page. All the loose ends are tied up in a most satisfying way. Ms. Madsen’s style is lucid with plenty of dialogue, internal and external, to tell the tale.” –  Mark Levy

Coming out in September – Sherlock Holmes and The Sword of Osman

It’s 1906. Far from England, the Ottoman Empire ruled by the despotic Sultan Abd-ul-Hamid 11 is on the verge of imploding. Rival Great Powers, especially Kaiser Wilhelm’s Germany, sit watching like crows on a fence, ready to rush in to carve up the vast territories, menacing England’s vital overland routes to her Indian possessions. At his medical practice in London’s Marylebone Watson receives a mystifying telegram. It’s from Holmes. ‘Dear Watson, if you can throw physic to the dogs for an hour or two I would appreciate meeting at the stone cross at Charing Cross railway station tomorrow noon. I have an assignation with a bird lover at the Stork & Ostrich House in the Regents Park which has excited my curiosity. Yrs. S.H.’

Watson finds the invitation puzzling. Why should such a mundane meeting at a Bird House excite the curiosity of Europe’s most famous investigating detective or anyone else? For old times’ sake Watson joins his old comrade-in-arms. Within days Holmes and Watson find themselves aboard HMS Dreadnought en route to Stamboul, a city of fabled opulence, high espionage and low intrigue. Their mission: at all costs stop a plot which could bring about the immediate collapse of the Ottoman Empire.
