Synopsis

The ghost of Sherlock Holmes is dead, but who will solve his murder?

The Great Detective's ghost has walked London's streets for an age, given shape by people's memories. Now someone's put a ceremonial dagger through his chest. But what's the motive? And who - or what - could kill a ghost?

When policing London's supernatural underworld, eliminating the impossible is not an option. DI James Quill and his detectives have learnt this the hard way. Gifted with the Sight, they'll pursue a criminal genius - who'll lure them into a Sherlockian maze of clues and evidence. The team also have their own demons to fight. They've been to Hell and back (literally) but now the unit is falling apart . . .

In the media

There are very few people who should be allowed anywhere near those sacred words "Sherlock Holmes", and Paul Cornell is one of the best
Steven Moffat
The team's continued struggle to understand the dark and terrifying side of London is gripping. This book is a strong follow-up, a good standalone story, and an excellent read for fans of dark urban fantasy
Publishers Weekly on Severed Streets (Book Two)
I think it is absolutely magnificent. I loved it . . . I'm not sure I've been that gripped by a novel in... well, decades
