Item Details

Baker & Taylor
When new letters addressed to famous former tenant Sherlock Holmes embroil them in a tangle of new cases, brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath are compelled to sort out an American heiress's unconventional will, translate a nursery rhyme, and find a missing rival.

McMillan Palgrave
In Michael Robertson's The Baker Street Translation, Reggie and Nigel Heath—brothers who lease law offices at 221B Baker Street in London, England and answer mail addressed to the location's most famous resident, Sherlock Holmes—find themselves pulled once again into a case straight out of Arthur Conan Doyle. An elderly American heiress wants to leave her entire fortune to Sherlock Holmes. A translator wants Sherlock Holmes to explain a nursery rhyme. And Robert Buxton—Reggie's rival for the love of actress Laura Rankin—has gone missing. Reggie must suss all these things out before an upcoming British royal event. If he doesn't, something very bad will happen to everyone at that event—and to Laura. Fast-paced, exciting, and clever, this is the perfect mystery for aficionados of the current craze for all things Sherlockian.

Diminishing returns on this series. Ingenious method of destruction; plotting not so ingenious & a bit slack.

Jul 30, 2013
  • bibliofinn rated this: 4 stars out of 5.

The third and by far the best instalment of a series that supposes that a struggling lawyer gets a great deal on office space in London only to find out that as a condition of his lease he must answer mail addressed to the most famous tenant of 221B Baker Street, Sherlock Holmes. Much good-natured humour as Reggie Heath struggles with the overpowering legacy of Holmes and attempts to win the attention of a beautiful actress from his Conrad Black-esque rival. The plot is ingenious and there is a clever resolution. Great beach reading.
