‘Kieran Lyne is a fresh new voice in the world of Sherlockian pastiches. With his first novel, The Last Confession of Sherlock Holmes, this young author does the seemingly impossible by finding a compelling and original answer to the age old mystery of what really happened to the great detective around the time of the great hiatus. This is one of my all time favorite post Doyle Sherlock Holmes novels. I can’t wait for the next one.’
Derrick Belanger Author and editor of A Study in Terror: Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Revolutionary Stories of Fear and the Supernatural (Volumes 1 and 2)
My debut novel The Last Confession of Sherlock Holmes, endorsed by the Arthur Conan Doyle Estate, is ready for pre-order from Amazon and Waterstones UK.
In the dawn of 1891 Sherlock Holmes is locked in a deadly game of wits with the sinister Professor James Moriarty; but events will soon transpire which will question the very outcome of Reichenbach. With Holmes presumed dead, the streets of London are panic-stricken, as a resurrected terror takes hold of the city; whilst in the upper-echelons of Government, a singular, undetectable force can once again be felt manipulating the criminal underworld.
The ever reliable Dr. Watson has deceived us all, as he finally reveals the far more shocking events which led to both the return of Sherlock Holmes and his involvement in the suppression of London’s most notorious criminal.
