"And so the end comes to the beginning of the story of the world's
most beloved detective….The series has courageously woven together
famous people, popular myths and the street-level views of London.
The mysteries, themselves, contain the illusive clues so
reminiscent of Doyle's work…. The story is ripe with premonitions….
Readers … will find this a satisfactory and hang-on-to-your-seat
read. It was sad to know this is the final installment...."
-Highly Recommended, CM Magazine
"…Peacock concludes his stellar saga with a final mystery…. This is
a solid period mystery. Peacock once again uses London as a
character…. Such characters as Irene Doyle, Malefactor (who will
become Moriarty), Lestrade, and even a whiff of Watson all
contribute to a feeling of authenticity … this is a strong story.
The ending is exciting and unexpected. This is an excellent
conclusion to a wonderful series."
