Product description

About the Author

Liz Hedgecock grew up in London, England, did an English degree, and then took forever to start writing. After several years working in the National Health Service, a writing course rekindled the flame, and various short stories followed. Then they began to grow longer . . . Liz’s reimaginings of the Holmesiverse, and Bitesize, a collection of flash fiction, are available in ebook and paperback. Liz now lives in Cheshire with her husband and two sons, and when she’s not writing or child-wrangling you can usually find her reading, running, or cooing over stuff in museums and art galleries.

Who knew Mrs Hudson's first name was Nell. I grew up on Sherlock Holmes, but the original version with Basil Rathgone and for any Sherlock fans this is a real treat. Well written with good characterisations and elements of a Victorian England all wrapped up within an elegant mystery 5 ⭐ Jenny

The author has given us a new take on Mrs Hudson and how she came to be the land lady to Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. The story centres around Mrs Hudson at first, and how she came to be the landlady of 221 Baker street. Mrs Hudson has a secret that she keeps from her lodgers. Sherlock and Dr Watson become her lodgers in exactly the way it is described in the original canon, as strangers. The story continues as a proper Sherlock Holmes adventure, with glimpses in to the past as Sherlock and Dr Watson investigate a new case, where the client is Mrs Hudson. I think that sir Arthur Conan Doyle would have been pleased with this, had he written it, despite some elements which jibe with how we normally think of sherlocks character. A Brilliant thought out and executed pastiche. I look forward to reading another Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson story in the future by this highly talented author.

What a fantastic read! This is a fast paced action adventure with emotion and humour and with plenty of twists and turns to carry you along. The main character, Nell, is fully rounded; as the story unfolds you watch her journey from grief and despair through initiative and determination as she unpicks the mystery which has led her to being a certain Mrs Hudson who is letting out rooms and as she gets to know her new lodger. Descriptions of Victorian life are evocative, and the claustrophobic world of respectable women, particularly in the first stages of mourning, is subtley and effectively drawn. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone who likes, mystery, adventure and a strong female lead. I hope this is not the last we hear of this particular Mrs Hudson.

It's a little known fact that, contrary to popular belief, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle did not die in 1930, but in fact maintained a low profile for several decades until resurfacing in the early 21st century whereupon he continued writing his Sherlock stories under an assumed name.

That name is Liz Hedgecock.

In his new guise as "Liz Hedgecock", ACD has produced a number of new Holmes pieces worthy of his earlier work. In this one, he explores the origins of one of his unsung heroines, Mrs Hudson, and is told from her perspective.

A gripping tale of confusion, paranoia and a missing person, essential reading for the Holmes connoisseur.
