A thrilling cosy mystery for Mrs Hudson, Baker Street’s best-kept secret.
A man is knocked down outside 221B Baker Street. His dying words speak of a man risen from the grave.
A Viscount has gone missing and there are rumours of a dead man haunting the moors and a country hall beset by ghostly lights and spectres. Sherlock Holmes’ housekeeper, the formidable Mrs Hudson, is faced with a mystery. Joined by her assistant Flotsam, they’re once again thrown into dark adventure full of gripping twists and murderous intrigue.
Together with Holmes and Dr. Watson they must race against the forces of darkness to uncover the truth behind the mysterious document known as the Lazarus Testament. Lives are on the line and the puzzle must be solved... But not before a slice of Dundee cake.
The third in the bestselling Sherlock Holmes & Mrs Hudson Mysteries, this is a dark but cosy crime novel that will transport readers to a world of foggy streets and snow-covered fells and Victorian London.
