Reviews

"Fans of Sherlock Holmes will be thrilled to meet his fearless and brilliant daughter, Joanna. Once again the game's afoot, and a new Holmes and Watson unite to solve the unsolvable in this delightful adventure by Leonard Goldberg." --Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author of I Know a Secret "Cleverly crafted with fascinating characters and a plot that Conan Doyle would be proud of. Sherlock fans looking for a new series need look no further than Goldberg's well developed and fascinating tale!" --M.J. Rose, New York Times bestselling author "Adventure, murder, family secrets and intrigue are abound in this novel, which has incredible characters who are charming, cunning and smart as a whip. Goldberg has successfully intertwined historical facts with fiction, and has created a must-read novel for fans of historical mystery and of Sherlock Holmes." --RT Book Reviews "The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes is a nicely rendered tale that will appeal to Sherlockian readers of all shades. The language and settings are faithful to Arthur Conan Doyle's original stories. John Jr. acts as narrator rather than Dr. Watson, and Joanna is an alluring replacement for the great detective.... The rigorous, well-placed clues, an unexpected and satisfying climactic twist, and the likable Joanna make this a welcome addition to the Shelock Holmes world." --Mystery Scene

"This clever book will keep you on the edge of your seat with its many thrilling twists and turns. The plot is worthy of Conan Doyle's originals, and I hope to see many more adventures of Joanna Blalock and John Watson, Jr." --Historical Novel Society "Goldberg's Sherlock Holmes pastiche is pitch-perfect as John Watson Jr. becomes the voice of a new generation and Joanna Blalock takes on her role as leader of the investigation. Fans of Laurie R. King's "Mary Russell" books will welcome a fellow female to the ranks of Holmes followers." --Library Journal "Goldberg, well-known for his medical thrillers, fuels the unquenchable fascination with Sherlock Holmes by combining detailed medical knowledge with the skills reincarnated in the Great Detective's daughter." --Kirkus Reviews

"Engaging... Joanna is Holmes' daughter, even down to echoing the great man's occasional lapses into smugness: 'Allow me to draw your attention....'" --Booklist

"A compelling murder mystery that's genuinely difficult to solve without the help of Mrs. Blalock and Dr. Watson." --Reviewing the Evidence blog "Here's a charming cozy with a new and delightful spin on the Holmes and Watson partnership.... The game is afoot once more! I look forward to following this engaging series." --BookLoons blog "The game is definitely afoot. Readers can follow along as they uncover clues, play with theories, and do their best to uncover the truth that will solve the case. There's danger, misdirection, surprises, a bit of romance, and characters that are interesting and believable." --Gumshoe Review "The author has done a superb job with Blalock. She certainly sounds a great deal like a character we all love. And it was a thrill to see Watson and his son, as well as Miss Hudson, the housekeeper, and the dim-witted Lestrade once again. The story is well thought out and the mystery keeps you reading." --Suspense Magazine Praise for Leonard Goldberg's Previous Novels:

"Loaded with suspense and believable characters" --T. Jefferson Parker "Strap on your seat belts for a thrilling ride. Leonard Goldberg pulls out all the stops in this action-packed tale that's sure to keep you flipping the pages." --Tess Gerritsen, New York Times bestselling author "All the excitement, intrigue and danger you could ask for." --Kirkus Reviews on Patient One
