Mycroft and Sherlock - Signed Copies Now Available
The new novel by NBA All-Star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, starring brothers Mycroft and Sherlock
★ "Fans will want to read this sturdy pastiche" - Kirkus Reviews
★ "In a sequel that takes place two years following the events detailed in the authors’ outstanding Mycroft Holmes (2015), Abdul-Jabbar and Waterhouse again nail the historical ambience, the dialogue, and the plotting, effectively paying tribute to Arthur Conan Doyle but also adding large dollops of humor and romance. This is a wonderful mystery in what one hopes will be a long-running series." -Booklist Starred Review
★ "Fans of Conan Doyle will appreciate the period accuracy, but a much wider audience will enjoy the intelligent treatment of race and social standing as part of a well-plotted, intriguing mystery."
