Who Killed Sherlock Holmes?
Who Killed Sherlock Holmes? | Paul Cornell
3 posts | 4 read | 2 to read
The ghost of Sherlock Holmes is dead, but who will solve his murder? The Great Detective's ghost has walked London's streets for an age, given shape by people's memories. Now someone's put a ceremonial dagger through his chest. But what's the motive? And who - or what - could kill a ghost? When policing London's supernatural underworld, eliminating the impossible is not an option. DI James Quill and his detectives have learnt this the hard way. Gifted with the Sight, they'll pursue a criminal genius - who'll lure them into a Sherlockian maze of clues and evidence. The team also have their own demons to fight. They've been to Hell and back (literally) but now the unit is falling apart . . .

#SFFTBRChallenge @DuckOfDoom

I pledged to do 15 books, I ended up entering 37 read books into the form. I read more SFF books, but they didn't really fit the categories.

Thank you Esther for coming up with this challenge. 😘😘😘

DuckOfDoom That's fantastic! I failed the challenge by one book only 😣 but I still had fun and read a lot of old books :D 7mo
julesG @Schnoebs - You were a wonderful reading buddy during this challenge. I am so sorry I didn't reply to emails as often. 7mo
julesG @DuckOfDoom Still sounds like a win to me. 7mo

Interesting. Should have read the first two books in the series first, but still enjoyed it.

Bit of Rivers of London meets Neverwhere, plus Sherlock in his different film and TV versions.

I'll certainly read the other books in the series, but in order of publication. 😁

julesG #HowFarIllGo All the main characters in this novel have to go further than they ever expected to go. Sacrificing blood, happiness, friendship, love, going through hell,... #MayMovieMagic @Cinfhen @rohit-sawant 9mo

I have to agree with The Independent Cornell is "The Sweeney to Aaronovitch's The Bill." This is another great instalment from Cornell following the trials and tribulations of the Shadow Police.

This book sees the team chasing down the murderer of none other than Sherlock Holmes. Fuelled by the sight and dragged down by the horrors that brings, the team must dig deep into the bowels of occult London to solve the ultimate crime.
