Product description

Review

"The Hound of Justice is a story of resistance, to be sure, but it's also the story of the real human costs of putting everything on the line. It's also a compelling mystery, at the center of which is a Watson with the same loyalty and curiosity as the original, but with an identity and outlook far more reflective of the times in which she (and we) live."--Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

"Outstanding characters and superb tension make this a must read book."--Scifi Pulse

"This is an entertaining sequel, narrated by the increasingly engaging Watson, and one hopes that the work of this Holmes and Watson will continue."--Booklist

"When these all-female, mostly black resistance fighters weapon up, they kick some serious bad-guy (and -girl) ass"--Kirkus Reviews

"O'Dell movingly portrays a proud woman struggling to regain her professional skills in a country still plagued by racism. Readers will hope this inventive series has a long run."
--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"The Hound of Justice is an entertaining, engaging near-future thriller, well written and well characterised. It's not a traditional Holmes-and-Watson story--the dynamics of their relationship feel rather different to many variants--but maybe that's to its credit. I enjoyed it, and I'm definitely looking forward to the next instalment, whatever (and whenever) that may be."--Locus

"An engaging and ultimately deeply satisfying novel"--Tor.com --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

It's been two months since Dr. Janet Watson accepted an offer from Georgetown University Hospital. The training for her new high-tech arm is taking longer than expected, however, leaving her in limbo. Meanwhile, her brilliant friend and compatriot, Sara Holmes, has been placed on leave--punishment for going rogue during their previous adventure.

After an extremist faction called the Brotherhood of Redemption launches a failed assassination attempt on the president that causes mass destruction, Holmes, who is now operating in the shadows, takes on the task of investigating the Brotherhood. Holmes is making progress when she abruptly disappears.

When Watson receives a mysterious message from Holmes's cousin Micha that indicates that Sara Holmes's disappearance might be connected to the Brotherhood and to Adler Industries, Watson and Micha go on a high-stakes mission to reunite with Holmes once more.

Together, Watson, Holmes, and Micha embark on a thrilling, action-packed journey through the deep South to clear Holmes's name, thwart the Brotherhood's next move, and most important, bring their nemesis to justice for the atrocities she's committed in the New Civil War.

--Locus --This text refers to the paperback edition.
