Against the  Brotherhood

Against the Brotherhood

(1997)
(The first book in the Mycroft Holmes series)
A novel by

 
For the first time, Dame Jean Conan Doyle has authorized a series of Holmesian novels featuring Mycroft, Sherlock Holmes's older brother. These exciting adventures will entertain both newcomers and devotees of the canon. Acknowledged by Sherlock himself as the smarter of the two and gifted with even greater powers of observation than the famous consulting detective, Mycroft Holmes appears in only four Conan Doyle stories. The barest details of his life are revealed - just enough to tantalize the reader. How was it that Mycroft at times seemed to control the British government even though he rarely left his home in Pall Mall or the comfortable environs of the Diogenes Club? Against the Brotherhood begins to lift the veil from the life of Mycroft Holmes - and his previously unknown staff. There's Mycroft's man, an ex-army officer who may have been a spy; Sutton, an actor whose flawless impersonation of Mycroft proves essential; and young Guthrie, whose employment as Mycroft's new secretary allows him to fulfill the Watsonian role of chronicler. Guthrie's upper-class education has not prepared him for the rough-and-tumble world of international politics, nor for his encounters with the beautiful and cunning Miss Gatspy, who is a thief, spy, and assassin. Against the Brotherhood is full of attempted assassinations, secret spymasters, anarchist cabals, concealed identities, double- and triple-agents, burglary, and sabotage, all done in true Conan Doyle style.
