In 1923, Dr John Watson is on trial for the murder of his lover, Mary Morstan, a writer of popular mysteries. If convicted, he will hang. Sherlock Holmes sets out to prove his innocence, but finds himself more and more infatuated with the handsome doctor, and deeper and deeper inside the bohemian world of London's painters, playwrights, and poets. Will he uncover the evidence needed to acquit him in time?
Excerpt: "Watching the man’s stoic expression from the side, I began to recognise that this was not just another puzzle to stave off my boredom. I had not often been in romantic relationships, and certainly did not believe that a person could fall in love with another person across a room, just by looking at them. But when I saw the light glinting off his hair, the look of patient fortitude on his face, and knew the effort it must be costing him to maintain his composure, I felt that I could not let him die. John Watson had to be saved, and some fate had brought me here to do just that."
