Set in a near future Washington, D.C., a clever, incisive,
and fresh feminist twist on a classic literary icon—Sherlock
Holmes—in which Dr. Janet Watson and covert agent Sara
Holmes will use espionage, advanced technology, and the
power of deduction to unmask a murderer targeting Civil War
Dr. Janet Watson knows firsthand the horrifying cost of a
divided nation. While treating broken soldiers on the
battlefields of the New Civil War, a sniper’s bullet
shattered her arm and ended her career. Honorably discharged
and struggling with the semi-functional mechanical arm that
replaced the limb she lost, she returns to the nation’s
capital, a bleak, edgy city in the throes of a fraught
presidential election. Homeless and jobless, Watson is
uncertain of the future when she meets another black and
queer woman, Sara Holmes, a mysterious yet playfully
challenging covert agent who offers the doctor a place to stay.
Watson’s readjustment to civilian life is complicated by the
infuriating antics of her strange new roommate. But the
tensions between them dissolve when Watson discovers that
soldiers from the New Civil War have begun dying one by
one—and that the deaths may be the tip of something far more
dangerous, involving the pharmaceutical industry and even
the looming election. Joining forces, Watson and Holmes
embark on a thrilling investigation to solve the mystery—and
secure justice for these fallen soldiers.
