Brothers of Baker Street (Baker Street Letters # 2) by Michael Robertson, 274 pages, read by Tammy, on 02/28/2012

Brothers of Baker StreetI don’t often like Sherlock Holmes mysteries written by someone other than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle but this is a different take on the ongoing Holmes persona and popularity that still exists in today’s society. Clever Idea and a mystery that keeps you guessing. I will definitely go back and read the first book in this series and watch for new ones to come out.

When brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath choose 221B Baker Street as the location for their law office, they don’t expect that their new office space would come with one huge stipulation, answering the letters sent to Sherlock Holmes, the most famous resident of that address in a timely fashion and no form letters allowed.

Reggie is distressed because the love of his life, actress Laura Rankin is gallivanting around with media mogul Lord Buxton. Reggie is working on a new case involving one of London’s Black Cab drivers who is accused of murdering two American tourists, the letters to Sherlock Holmes are piling up. There’s even one from someone who claims to be the descendent of Professor James Moriarty. Nigel has to return from the United States to help out his brother with his case and the mysterious letters.
