Clever devious and highly engaging seuel to A Study in Scarlet Women and picking the story up right after that one endedIt would be impossible to discuss the plot without giving away too much of both book 1 and book 2 so I will only say that things get ever tangled layered and interesting and the uniue female Sherlock spin Ms Thomas offers on the original version staples is ever convincing And it is “technically” possible to read A Conspiracy in Belgravia without having read the first book but that would mean losing a substantial part of the main characters’ arcs Intelligent deep and nuanced main charactersThe romance is relegated to the background here as well but it crackles off the page whenever present while the mystery aspect gains ingenuity and guile The writing is brilliant and polished as always with this author with a uicker pace but at the same time evocative of the classic Victorian suspense novelAn amazing series can’t wait for the next one

A Conspiracy in BelgraviaHer than Myron Finch her illegitimate half brother In the meanwhile Charlotte wrestles with a surprising proposal of marriage a mysterious stranger woos her sister Livia and an unidentified body that surfaces where least expected Charlotte’s investigative prowess is challenged as never before Can she find her brother in time or will he too end up as a nameless corpse somewhere in the belly of Londo. I am breathless Not to mention sleepless as I had to stay up late to finish this amazing book Sherry Thomas is simply a genius – twisting classic Sherlockian memes into complicated knots and then gradually untying them so that we’re left with a beautiful seamless ribbon of an adventure tinged with romance A Conspiracy in Belgravia is most definitely going on my “playing chess not checkers” shelfThis is the second Lady Sherlock book and as we learned in the first Miss Charlotte Holmes has set herself up as the supposed sister of an invalid brother Sherlock who is brilliant at solving baffling mysteries and who occasionally assists Inspector Treadles of Scotland Yard Charlotte is estranged from her aristocratic parents and lives with Mrs John Watson the colorful widow of an Army officer Together they maintain the facade of an ailing Sherlock living at 221B Baker Street Charlotte interviews the clients while ‘Sherlock’ listens from his bedchamber Only a few people know that Sherlock does not exist including Charlotte’s sister Livia Inspector Treadles and Lord Ingram Ashburton – Ash – Charlotte’s closest friend since childhoodShortly before our story begins Charlotte had helped expose a triple murderer and here I must offer a suggestion read A Study In Scarlet Women first While this book could be read as a standalone I think that a reader’s understanding and enjoyment would be enhanced by reading them in orderCharlotte receives a note reuesting an appointment from a Mrs Finch but Charlotte immediately recognizes the notepaper and realizes that the letter comes from Lady Ingram Ashburton The situation is rather tricky as Ash and his wife are not a happy couple living virtually separate lives under the same roof for the sake of propriety and their two young children Moreover Ash and Charlotte are secretly in love with one another although they would never admit it or act upon it Ash is too honorable and Charlotte is too unromantic to think of love There is a palpable undercurrent of attraction thoughCharlotte accepts Lady Ingram’s reuest but to avoid being recognized by her Mrs Watson’s niece Penelope poses as Sherlock’s sister It turns out that Lady Ingram is looking for help in locating a young man Myron Finch with whom she fell in love before marrying Ash For financial and social reasons they could not marry but they agreed to meet once a year at the Albert Memorial not speaking or acknowledging one another but merely passing to see that each was still alive and well This year however Mr Finch did not appear and Lady Ingram wants Holmes to locate him and discover the reason Imagine Charlotte’s surprise when Penelope repeats this story to her for Myron Finch is Charlotte’s illegitimate half brother a son her father had supported but kept a secret from his wife and daughters Charlotte knows about him because she and Livia routinely snooped in their father’s office when he was out of townCharlotte is in for another surprise that day when Ash’s older brother Lord Bancroft Ashburton pays her a call and proposes marriage For you Sherlockians Bancroft is a Mycroft Holmes sort of character who holds a position in the government and can pull strings when needed Bancroft is the opposite of his brother Ash – cerebral decidedly uncharismatic and obsessively curious about everything and everyone Charlotte agrees to consider his proposal as it does present some advantages for her Marriage to Bancroft would redeem her reputation in society which was ruined when she ran away from home after being deliberately caught in flagrante with a married man It would enable a reconciliation with her family and enable her to offer care for her mentally disabled sister Bernadette and to visit openly with Livia However she would be reuired to give up her Sherlock Holmes persona and distance herself from the socially unsuitable Mrs Holmes Bancroft offers her a consolation though “given that mental exertion gives you pleasure I shall be happy to supply the necessary exercises After all I come across them on a regular basis” With that he gives her a dossier of six envelopes containing the details of unsolved mysteries One of them involves breaking a virtually impossible cipher but Charlotte is up to the job which leads her and Ash to a London house where Inspector Treadles is investigating a murderOf course I cannot resist saying that from there the game is afoot It is far too complicated to even begin to describe how this murder ties into the search for Myron Finch but it does In the incredibly skillful hands of Sherry Thomas though the intricate plot works and everything falls into place at the end Not only is the adventure marvelously structured the characters are fascinating Charlotte is logical and unromantic and yet she hesitates to marry Bancroft given that she finds his brother attractive We feel great sympathy for Ash trapped as he is in a miserable marriage to a deceitful woman who only married him for his money Little sister Livia meets a mysterious young man who seems to like her despite her oddities and uirks We also learn about the tribulations of Inspector Treadles a man happily married to an heiress but living on a detective’s income He has women problems His wife admits that she would like to run her father’s business and the “magnificent boon to his career” Sherlock Holmes “turned out to be a woman with loose morals and no remorse”Once again Thomas inserts little factoids from Conan Doyle’s Sherlock stories Livia is finding her inner muse and begins writing her own mystery story about a massacre in Utah related to a religious cult Sherlockians will immediately recognize elements of A Study in Scarlet And the arch criminal Moriarty makes his presence knownI read this on my Kindle making lots of notes and highlights and flipping back to read some passages again It is not an effortless read even for someone who loves complex mysteries But the effort is well worth it Sherry Thomas is superbly talented and it shows in every page of this book I cannot recommend it highly enoughOne thing Just when you think you have it all figured out – there is the last line of the book Wow I did not see that coming Can’t wait for the next one
