Doctor Watson's Charge (Kindle Single) (The Doctor Watson Adventures Book 2) Kindle Edition
The enigmatic army officer Captain JAC Smethwick is a veteran of the The Charge of the Light Brigade.
But when he visits Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson he has more on his mind than the conflict in the Crimea.
There is a mystery surrounding the death of his former employer, Lord Cardigan.
Smethwick believes that the man responsible for his death is none other than the former Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli.
Holmes sends Watson off to Deene Park, Lord Cardigan's estate, to investigate and question the victim's widow - the colourful and flirtatious Adeline de Horsey.
But Watson starts to uncover an altogether more sinister and complex conspiracy.
And rather than unmask the murderer, Watson may become his next victim.
The game's afoot - but who is the hunter and who will be the prey?
Doctor Watson's Charge is part of Patrick Mercer's bestselling series of Doctor Watson adventures that include Doctor Watson's War, Doctor Watson's Bout and Doctor Watson’s Terror
