A LEAP INTO THE UNKNOWN

Sherlock Holmes solves an old family mystery.
         A client forsworn, a threatened town, and a Goliath of unimaginable proportions . . .
          Gretchen Altabef has authored her first pastiche novel, “Sherlock Holmes: These Scattered Houses.” Publication Date/Book Release: 14 November 2019, MX Publishing, London. 
Sherlock Holmes is sixty days away from A. Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of the Empty House." He has survived a three-year vendetta against him by Moriarty’s remaining henchmen. Wounded and bleeding, with Mycroft’s help he clandestinely boards a steamship headed for the Atlantic.
At the close of his great hiatus, Holmes finds sanctuary at Vassar Women’s College. This radical challenge entangles him in the web of a nefarious mystery. Its unraveling involves New York’s most revolutionary residents: Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. To pluck his client from danger, he drafts the twenty-year-old Harry Houdini in outrageous sleight of hand. Four villains embroil the plot. The lives of everyday citizens inexorably rise to heroism. And it all begins when a twelve-year-old girl matches wits with Sherlock Holmes on Market Street.
 "Sherlock Holmes: These Scattered Houses" is a daring adventure in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. As Professor Sigerson the pansophic gentleman of justice, Holmes is confronted by the evil that lurks within the smiling and beautiful countryside.
