In Sherlock's Shadow(2019)
(The second book in the Mrs Hudson & Sherlock Holmes series)
A novel by Liz Hedgecock
What happens when the honeymoon ends?Life in Baker Street is not all Nell Hudson thought it would be. Financially the household is struggling, and in the masculine world of police work, Nell finds herself pushed aside in favour of Dr Watson. She takes a job as a department store detective to make ends meet; but though she is successful, none of the men in her life take it seriously.
Sherlock himself is busy investigating a missing prisoner; but when Emmett Stanley is found it turns out to be a case not of escape, but abduction. And he is in no state to tell anyone what happened.
Then trouble strikes closer to home. Military secrets are being leaked, and Mycroft Holmes is under suspicion. When Sherlock tries to help, a rift opens between the brothers, and its consequences threaten Nell and Sherlock's relationship.
In the midst of it all, an opportunity beckons for Nell. She is approached to go undercover as a spy; but to do so she must leave everything behind and live a life completely alien to her.
Will Nell dare to step out of Sherlock Holmes's shadow?
In Sherlock's Shadow is the second book in the Mrs Hudson & Sherlock Holmes series, which documents life at 221B Baker Street from Nell Hudson's point of view.
