Doctor Watson's Terror

(The fourth book in the Doctor Watson series)
A Novella by

'A storyteller who knows the humour, the fear and the frenzy of men in battle.' - Bernard Cornwall

1882. The Irish Republican Brotherhood (the Fenians) are fighting for independence from the UK.

As Doctor Watson is walking back towards Parliament Square, two carriages collide in a serious accident. He rushes to help - and simultaneously a novel dynamite device is discovered outside the Home Office and defused before it can go off.

During a subsequent visit to Sherlock Holmes, Watson receives a telegram from the Royal Irish Constabulary, asking him to visit Ireland, and the two earlier incidents start to seem related.

Once in Ireland, Watson and his own sidekick Bowler, find themselves embroiled in an assassination plot and are kidnapped by Fenian rebels.

Can the two Englishmen escape from the rebel gang in time to prevent further murders?

Doctor Watson's Terror is part of Patrick Mercer's bestselling series of Doctor Watson adventures that include Doctor Watson's War, Doctor Watson's Bout and Doctor Watson's Charge.

Praise for Patrick Mercer's books

'The style is rougher and more forceful than we're used to, being untouched by Conan Doyle's editorial hand, but it suits the subject matter admirably. You just know that this is what it was like.' - Roger Johnson, The District Messenger on Doctor Watson's War

'A tremendous achievement by a storyteller who knows the humour, the fear and the frenzy of men in battle,' Bernard Cornwell

'A finely-drawn depiction of battle and the camaraderie of war' - The Daily Mail of To Do and Die.

Patrick Mercer is author of the Anthony Morgan Trilogy, To Do and Die, Dust and Steel and Red Runs the Helmand, as well as a number of straight histories of Victoria's wars. A military historian by training, he was decorated four times as an infantry officer and then was the defence correspondent for BBC Radio 4's Today Programme.
