Summary For over a century, the secrets of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's missing diary have lain buried. Now all that's about to change a Victorian London: the world mourns as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle consigns his fictional detective Sherlock Holmes to a watery grave at the foot of the Reichenbach Falls. But Conan Doyle has a new preoccupation, as a chance encounter sets him on the trail of a brutal killer targeting vulnerable suffragettes. Modern-day New York: literary researcher Harold White's lifelong obsession with Sherlock Holmes turns into something far more sinister. The world's leading Doylean scholar is found murdered in his hotel room, and only Harold is familiar enough with the arcane mysteries of the Holmes novels to recognise the clues the killer has left. Clues which will lead him not only to a murderer prepared to stop at nothing, but also to the mystery of Conan Doyle's missing diary - and a the secret that Conan Doyle, a hundred years earlier, risked everything to expose a hide.
