What would happen if Baker Street's most famous detective wasn't Sherlock Holmes? This three-book collection from The Conjurer's Bird author Martin Davies highlights the talents of Sherlock's housekeeper, Mrs Hudson, and her orphaned assistant Flotsam.
Mrs Hudson and the Spirits' Curse finds a group of merchants dying one by one; Mrs Hudson and the Malabar Rose involves dangerous magicians, precious gems and dastardly plans; and Mrs Hudson and the Lazarus Testament is the dark tale of a 'dead' man haunting the moors up north!
Packed with gripping twists and murderous intrigue, these elementary page-turners offer a fresh twist on classic Victorian mysteries.
This collection contains books 1-3 in Martin Davies' Holmes and Hudson series. Format: paperback
A young woman leaves her home, summoned to the emperor's court and a husband she barely knows. On the other side of the world, a famous scholar is sent to find and collect the mysterious beasts of legend in the unknown lands of the East. He takes with him an interpreter, Venn, famous for his special gift with language. The two groups of travellers are destined to cross paths, revealing the secret motives and hidden passions of those who are brought together.
