When brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath choose 221B Baker Street as the location for their law office, they don't realize that their new office space comes with one huge stipulation; namely, they must answer the letters sent to Sherlock Holmes, the most famous resident of that address. While Reggie is working on a new case involving one of London's Black Cab drivers, the letters to Sherlock Holmes are piling up. There's even one from someone who claims to be the descendent of Professor James Moriarty. With a case that would have puzzled even Sherlock himself, "The Brothers of Baker Street "is sure to please mystery fans, whatever their address.

"A delightful romp...The last third of the novel is one of the finest, scariest sequences in current crime fiction... For anglophiles, crime-o-philes, and all fans of wonderful writing." --Booklist (starred)  "An extremely clever evil scheme will delight readers." --Publishers Weekly (starred)  "A heck of a ride, and fun to boot, which is all we need ask of the kind of puzzle story Mr. Robertson so ably delivers." --The New York Journal of Books  "The premise here is as intriguing as that of Barry Grant's novels, which see Holmes thawed out after a century in an ice flow and living in contemporary London. Great fun." --Library Journal  "Very entertaining novel...mystery fans, whether they're Sherlock Holmes addicts or not, will thoroughly enjoy it...It should be a popular series indeed." -- Booklist
