"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Brothers of Baker Street

Jill at Breaking the Spine, hosts "Waiting On" Wednesday, a weekly event spotlighting those new and future releases that we're looking forward to getting our hands on.

And this week, the book I'm looking forward to is:

The Brothers of Baker Street
Written by Michael Robertson
Minotaur Books
Release date: March 1, 2011

Description (from GoodReads):
The second in a highly original and absolutely marvelous series about two brother lawyers who lease offices on London's Baker Street--and begin receiving mail addressed to Sherlock Holmes. 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.

Reggie is distressed because the love of his life, actress Laura Rankin (whom Nigel also adores), is gallivanting around with media mogul Lord Buxton. And while 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 descendant of Professor James Moriarty.

With a case that would have puzzled even Sherlock himself and a pair of brother sleuths more different than night and day,
The Brothers of Baker Street is sure to please mystery fans whatever their address.

I haven't read the first book in the series yet (The Baker Street Letters), and as I recall it didn't get terrific reviews. But this one sounds like it's definitely worth a try.


  1. I did not know about this series, but it sounds like something both I and my husband would love...thanks for picking this one!

  2. I hadn't heard of this series, but it sounds very that cover, too. The idea of sharing an address with Sherlock Holmes...a unique touch.

    Here's MY WOW

  3. This one sounds interesting. I'll have to look for the first one in the series!

  4. It does sound good, but I'd want to read the first one first.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
