2017 RT Reviewers' Choice--Best Historical Mystery

From USA Today and internationally bestselling author Leonard Goldberg comes The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes , a new thrilling tale of the great detective's daughter and her companion Dr. John Watson, Jr. as they investigate a murder at the highest levels of British society.

1914. Joanna Blalock's keen mind and incredible insight lead her to become a highly-skilled nurse, one of the few professions that allow her to use her finely-tuned brain. But when she and her ten-year-old son witness a man fall to his death, apparently by suicide, they are visited by the elderly Dr. John Watson and his charming, handsome son, Dr. John Watson Jr. Impressed by her forensic skills, they invite her to become the third member of their investigative team.

Caught up in a Holmesian mystery that spans from hidden treasure to the Second Afghan War of 1878-1880, Joanna and her companions must devise an ingenious plan to catch a murderer in the act while dodging familiar culprits, Scotland Yard, and members of the British aristocracy. Unbeknownst to her, Joanna harbors a mystery of her own. The product of a one-time assignation between the now dead Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, the only woman to ever outwit the famous detective, Joanna has unwittingly inherited her parents' deductive genius.

Listened to the book on tape. I enjoyed the story. It seemed some of the chapters were redundant. Will read the next book in the series.

Many authors have attempted to pick up where the Sherlock Holmes mysteries stopped. I though the premise of this series is a little far-fetched and the romance a little hokey, but I am willing to give these characters another chance as the mystery was very complex and well developed.

The book is good in parts. But the way genetics is used in the plot is a bit unscientific. Also, too perfect analysis in many places.

Enjoyable, but Joanna is a little too perfect.

Any Sherlock Holmes fans willl enjoy the twist on this story where Holmes' daughter works with John Watson and his son. A clever, quick read that sets us up well for a new series and one which I will be looking forward to with great pleasure! Once again 'the game's afoot!
