The Case of the Tattooed Bride (Abaddon Books, 2015)
Winter, and the Soggiorno Brothers’ Traveling Wonder Show haspulled into its berth in Peru, Indiana. Sanford “Crash” Haus, proprietor and genius, and his friend, surgeon and retired soldier Jim “Dandy” Walker, are looking forward to a quiet few months with the rest of the carnies when that plan is bollocksed up. The Show's former snake-oil salesman, Professor Sylvestri, comes into town with his ward in tow and the only thing keeping Crash from turning him out on his ear is the peculiar mystery that follows. With a wedding on the lot and a mystery to solve, Crash and Dandy have their hands full.
THREE VERY DIFFERENT BAKER STREETS. THREE VERY DIFFERENT SHERLOCKS. THREE EXTRAORDINARY NEW CASES.
Brilliant, distracted, sarcastic, abrasive, superior, fiercely loyal and—above all—ferociously principled, Sherlock Holmes is a hero for all times. Every era has its thieves and monsters, its exploiters and abusers, and in every era the detective of Baker Street will piece together the clues and bring the guilty to book.
In alt.sherlock.holmes, the creators of Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets have invited three talented writers to bring startling visions of the Great Detective and the redoubtable Doctor Watson to the page: as a carnival owner and fortune teller in the ’thirties American Dust Bowl, as a drugged-up, tuned-out weirdnik in ’sixties New York City, and as the most irregular consultant in present-day Hollywood.
The game’s afoot! Whether hunting a vandal, a killer, or a shadowy conspiracy, in Indiana, California or New York, Holmes and Watson are on the case.
