It’s always exciting to see your new book ready to take pre-release orders. After a year of being nothing more than an idea in your head, suddenly it’s a physical object.
I’m biased, of course, but I think artist Brian Belanger did a great job with the cover. I wanted it to look like a leather diary, like the previous two books, but with a tear that looks like the Reichenbach Falls. This is what he came up with.
As I’ve probably mentioned, this is the third book in the Sherlock Holmes / Lady Beatrice series. I previously posted the opening scene of the book on this blog, but if you want a reminder, or if you missed it, you’ll find it here: Return to Reichenbach
Here’s the cover blurb:
When a half-naked man is found gibbering on the moor, Sherlock Holmes uncovers a series of bizarre murders. At their heart lies a shadowy figure known only as The Sorcerer. He can talk to the dead, they say. He can bend any will to his own. Even a will as formidable as the detective’s. The investigation leads from Dartmoor to Ireland and, ultimately, back to one of the most terrifying scenes of his career. Can Holmes survive the Reichenbach Falls a second time?
From the author of A Biased Judgement: The Sherlock Holmes Diaries 1897, Return to Reichenbach is the third in the Sherlock Holmes and Lady Beatrice series.
