      Summary: A visit from the distraught Ronald Temple sets Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson on the hunt for a kidnapped child. With no ransom note and a sinister connection to the highest echelons of Victorian society, it becomes clear that it is no ordinary kidnapping, and soon the companions' lives are in danger. What is the child's true heritage? And what is the connection with the Whitechapel murders of a decade before?

Booklist Reviews 2014 November #2

The year is 1899. Sherlock Holmes is thinking about retiring, having grown bored with the lack of challenging cases. Dr. Watson has convinced him to go on holiday to the Devonshire coast, a trip designed to give his friend some peace and relaxation. But when Holmes finds a dead body on the beach, and the body promptly disappears, peace and relaxation are the last things on either of their minds. Davies, a noted Holmes scholar and author of several previous novels about the great consulting detective, has put together a very clever mystery involving a small village whose residents seem a little odd, the family of an infamous satanist, and a dark conspiracy. If you gathered up all the stories and novels written about Holmes, those written by his creator, Arthur Conan Doyle, would be seriously outnumbered by those written by other people. There's a scale of quality, too, with the non–Conan Doyle stories, ranging between very good and quite awful. Rank this one closer to the "very good" end of the scale: it boasts a good story, and, moreover, it feels right. A welcome addition to the vast Holmes literature. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
