Product Description

An NPR Best Book of 2016

USA Today
bestselling author Sherry Thomas turns the story of the renowned Sherlock Holmes upside down…

With her inquisitive mind, Charlotte Holmes has never felt comfortable with the demureness expected of the fairer sex in upper class society. But even she never thought that she would become a social pariah, an outcast fending for herself on the mean streets of London.
When the city is struck by a trio of unexpected deaths and suspicion falls on her sister and her father, Charlotte is desperate to find the true culprits and clear the family name. She’ll have help from friends new and old—a kind-hearted widow, a police inspector, and a man who has long loved her.

But in the end, it will be up to Charlotte, under the assumed name Sherlock Holmes, to challenge society’s expectations and match wits against an unseen mastermind.

Die-hard Conan Doyle fans are unlikely to shower Sherry Thomas' A Study in Scarlet Women with exuberant praise. I understand. I am not a fan of the gazillion Pride and Prejudice imitations. (Most I have read have irritated me beyond belief.)
I read Doyle decades ago and always found Holmes fascinating, albeit the sort of smugly superior upper-crust Englishman I wouldn't want to know personally. Although I enjoyed them, I have never been tempted to re-read the Doyle stories and find the recent Benedict Cumberbatch TV depictions mannered and boring. And yet I loved Thomas' story. I would want to meet her Sherlock Holmes. Despite her being from the British gentry of the Victorian era, I would definitely want to meet her.
Some die-hard Thomas fans may be disappointed with A Study in Scarlet Women. I agree that it is not in the style of her previous works and, to an extent, I regret that. I will be surprised, for example, if the upcoming series ever delivers the romantic intensity of her earlier works - but, hopefully, the laugh will be on me, and I will be surprised.
In any event, authors can't keep regurgitating the same storylines and characterisations (and even the same sort of angst) and stay ahead of the pack. And Thomas has always, in my view, either been way ahead of the HR pack, or firmly ensconced with the leaders.
So I applaud her move to create a female Sherlock Holmes. I loved the story, the missives, the main mystery, the two sisters (Charlotte and Olivia - and, in the future, maybe Bernadine?) Lord Ingram (Ash), the many side characters and the many mini-mysteries.
