In a pair of intriguing novellas set in London in the 1890s, the deductive skills of Sherlock Holmes and his protégé, Inspector Alec MacDonald of Scotland Yard, are severely tested by a string of random killings of ‘gentlemen of consequence,’ and a plot to bring down the monarchy and plunge the British Empire into chaos.
Lost, alone, and trapped in a little valley in the Northern Rocky Mountains in 1849, a desperate 14-year-old girl must find a way to survive the savage winter weather and frequent attacks by hungry wolves, grizzly bears and mountain lions in the historical fiction novel Stranded.
