‘The Great Detective as a woman? Yes, with all the quirks, foibles, and misanthropy, all the genius, and all the darkness that runs through that remarkable mind. I look forward to more of Myrl Adler and her faithful Watson.’

Sena Jeter Naslund

‘Abby Pen Baker successfully creates a new world where a young woman detective embodies an equal amount of courage, curiosity, determination, and brains … An exciting plot, a refreshing main character, and precise and evocative language combine to offer us a fine read.’

Kirkus Reviews

‘Baker juggles her large cast and their secrets dextrously … Recommended for readers who aren’t sick of the centenary glut of Holmes pastiches, and even for those who are.’
