A stunning Dr Watson thriller perfect for all fans of Sherlock. The year is 1917 and Doctor John Watson is held in a notorious POW camp deep in enemy Germany, there as Medical Officer for the British prisoners. With the Allied blockade, food is perilously short in the camp and when a new prisoner is murdered all assume the poor chap was killed for his Red Cross parcel. Watson, though, isn't so sure. Something isn't quite what it seems and a creeping feeling of unease tells Watson there is more to this than meets the eye. And when an escape plot is apparently uncovered in his hut and he is sent to solitary confinement, he knows he has touched a nerve. If Watson is to reveal the heinous crimes that have occurred at the camp, he must escape before he is silenced for good. All he needs is some long-distance help from his old friend, Sherlock Holmes... 'Robert Ryan is the key heir apparent to Conan Doyle' Barry Forshaw, Financial Times Praise for Dead Man's Land: 'A hugely powerful depiction of wartime horror, a cunning murder mystery and a brilliant re-invention of Dr John Watson. Conan Doyle would most definitely approve!' Mark Billingham 'A vivid account of life in the trenches...this is a genuinely fascinating and finely researched piece of war fiction' Daily Express 'A page-turning read' Daily Mail Praise for The Dead Can Wait: 'Seriously good, very readable, well-researched novel' The Times 'A cracking, fulfilling, utterly satisfying read' Manda Scott 'A clever and interesting period piece' Literary Review
Doctor Watson, returned fresh from Afghanistan with an injured arm and shattered nerves from illness, moves to London on a pension. He is most introduced to Sherlock Holmes, with whom he rooms for some time. He is skeptical about Holmes' self professed deductive powers, and so Holmes allows him to tag along on a case that the police cannot solve. Needless to say, Holmes thoroughly impresses Watson with his deductive powers, and promises to keep records of all of Holmes' cases so that his excellent detecting doesn't go unrewarded. The first part of A Study in Scarlet leads to the arrest of the murderer, and the second part provides the story of the murderer's life and motives, previously unexplained. Part two takes the listener across the ocean to the original settlement of Salt Lake City in Utah, and a story of hardship, love, greed, Mormons, and revenge, and then back to London to sort out the explanations.
