FICTION / Historical


When Jayne Wilson’s mother is accused of murder, Jayne and Gemma have to eliminate the impossible to reveal the true killer.

Legendary stage and movie star Sir Nigel Bellingham arrives on Cape Cod to star in a stage production of The Hound of the Baskervilles put on by the West London Theater Festival. When Sir Nigel, some of the cast, and the director visit the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop at 222 Baker Street, Gemma Doyle realizes that Sir Nigel is not at all suited to the role. He is long past his prime and an old drunk to boot.

The cast, in particular the much younger actor who previously had the role, are not happy, but the show must go on.

Before the play opens, Leslie Wilson, mother of Gemma’s best friend Jayne, arranges a fundraising afternoon tea to be catered by Mrs. Hudson’s Tea Room. The tea is a huge success, but when it’s time to leave, Sir Nigel has gone missing―only to be found at the bottom of the rocky cliff, dead. Along with the dead body, Gemma finds evidence incriminating Leslie Wilson. When the police, in the presence of handsome detective Ryan Ashburton and suspicious detective Louise Estrada, focus their attention on Leslie despite the numerous other suspects, the game is once again afoot and it’s again up to the highly perceptive Gemma and the ever-confused but loyal Jayne to clear Jayne’s mother’s name.

Fans of Miranda James and Kate Carlisle, and Sherlockians everywhere will delight at The Cat of the Baskervilles, the clever third Sherlock Holmes Bookshop mystery.

ACTIVITY FROM AROUND THE WEB
A bookstore owner once more channels Sherlock Holmes to solve a murder.

Gemma Doyle, who owns the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop and Emporium in a touristy Cape Cod town, learns from her best friend, Jayne Wilson, who runs the adjoining Mrs. Hudson’s Tea Room, that famed British actor Sir Nigel Bellingham will play Holmes in a local theatrical production of The Hound of the Baskervilles. Although Gemma’s a Brit herself, she makes no claims to any Conan Doyle family relationship ...

The second in Delany’s series, a marked improvement over the first (Body on Baker Street, 2017), features better-developed characters and a more congenial and cerebral sleuth.
