Duration: 5 hours 45 minutes
The greatest mystery surrounding Sherlock Holmes comes to light: was he actually a woman? At last the master-or rather, mistress-of disguise puts pen to paper to reveal this decades-long deception and, in so doing, discovers another fact she kept secret even from herself. The complex mind of the brilliant consulting detective is finally opened to the public in the chronicle of a new case never recorded by Dr. Watson-a case featuring Constance Moriarty, the beguiling daughter of Holmes' infamous nemesis.
This prizewinning tale puts a fascinating spin on one of the most legendary characters in all of literature.
"Margaret Park Bridges takes an even more revisionist approach in her novel My Dear Watson. The detective's secret is disclosed at the very start of the book, and it'll do no harm to reveal it here: Sherlock Holmes was a woman. It's not a new idea but it's handled here with great skill and confidence, and it has a purpose, to account for much of Holmes' personality as described by Dr. Watson."-The Sherlock Holmes Society
