SHERLOCK HOLMES – BOOK #3 Cover & Description

Here it is: the cover of BOOK #3 in my series of new Sherlock Holmes thrillers from Titan Books/Random House USA.

I love it! Many thanks to Titan Books in London for this spectacular tentacle-crazed cover.

BOOK #3 Description: 

Both Fitzgerald and Moriarty travel to Innsmouth, the stronghold of the cult of the Old Ones. Holmes and Watson follow them across the ocean and discover a structure designed to enable the Old Ones to flood into our world and  unleash horrors that — unless stopped — will annihilate all of humanity. Yet when it is destroyed people continue to mutate and go mad. Cthulhu rises over Devil Reef, ready to unleash his minions. In an epic battle — logic vs. brawn — Holmes must defeat Cthulhu and permanently seal the deadly dimensions. 

 

THANK YOU!

My sincere thanks to readers and reviewers who post such kind comments about my books. You keep me going during tough times.

Nothing makes me happier than succeeding in giving you entertaining and fun diversions from day-to-day life. Nothing makes me happier than knowing that you went on the wild ride with me.

So… THANK YOU! 

 

 

 

 

MORE REVIEWS: Sherlock Holmes – The Adventure of the Neural Psychoses

Reviews: 

“If you like your detective stories with a dash of the occult, Sherlock Holmes vs. Cthulhu: The Adventure of the Neural Psychoses is for you. Holmes vs. Cthulhu, what more could you want?”
– Horror Channel UK

“An excellent mash up of Doyle and Lovecraft that I can’t help but applaud. Gresh masters both [Holmes and Lovecraft] perfectly and exceedingly, I was completely blown away! The characters of Holmes and Watson were perfect renderings that even Doyle would approve of. The plot line was amazing, it wasn’t too OTT making it silly or ridiculous, it was just the right amount of terrifying meets bizarre and worked wonderfully. A trilogy that any fans of Sherlock, Lovecraft, SFF or historical fantasy would love.”

Amelia Scarcliffe’s monstrous brood, harbingers of Cthulhu, will soon spawn. Her songs spell insanity, death…and illimitable wealth. And Moriarty will do anything to get his hands on gold, even if it means tearing down the walls between this world and a realm of horrors.

Meanwhile, after Sherlock Holmes’s last tangle with the Order of Dagon, horrifying monsters haunt the Thames, and madness stalks the streets of Whitechapel. Gang war between Moriarty’s thugs and the powerful cult can only bring more terror–unless Holmes and Dr. Watson can prevent it. But can they find the cause of the neural psychoses before Watson himself succumbs?
