If Sherlock Holmes was a woman.
Who is Lady Sherlock?
Written by American novelist Sherry M. Thomas, The Lady Sherlock series gender-flips Sherlock Holmes into Charlotte Holmes.
Charlotte Holmes creates the fiction of a “Sherlock Holmes, consulting detective” and masquerades as his sister to solve investigates crimes in Victorian-era London with the help of a female benefactor and a handsome gentleman.
The Lady Sherlock Books in Order:
- A Study In Scarlet Women – When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte Holmes is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. Under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, she’ll have help from friends new and old—a kind-hearted widow, a police inspector, and a man who has long loved her.
- A Conspiracy in Belgravia – Lady Ingram, wife of Charlotte’s dear friend and benefactor, wants Sherlock Holmes to find her first love, who failed to show up at their annual rendezvous. The case becomes even more personal for Charlotte as the missing man is none other than Myron Finch, her illegitimate half-brother.
- The Hollow of Fear – First, Charlotte’s half-brother disappears. Then, Lady Ingram, the estranged wife of Charlotte’s close friend Lord Ingram, turns up dead on his estate. And all signs point to Lord Ingram as the murderer. With Scotland Yard closing in, Charlotte goes under disguise to seek out the truth. But uncovering the truth could mean getting too close to Lord Ingram–and a number of malevolent forces.
- The Art of Theft – Charlotte Holmes has solved murders and found missing individuals. But she has never stolen a priceless artwork—or rather, made away with the secrets hidden behind a much-coveted canvas. But nothing is what it seems and disaster is biding time on the grounds of a glittering French chateau, waiting only for Charlotte to make a single mistake.
- Murder on Cold Street – Charlotte finds herself in a case strewn with lies and secrets when Inspector Treadles is found locked in a room with two dead men, both of whom worked with his wife. Not to mention, how can she concentrate on these murders, when Lord Ingram, her oldest friend and sometime lover, at last dangles before her the one thing she has always wanted?
