When brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath chose 221B Baker Street as the location for their law office, they didn’t expect that their new office space would come with one huge stipulation—answering the letters sent to Sherlock Holmes, the most famous resident of that address.

The first Sherlock Holmes letter barrister Reggie Heath answered cost him most of his personal fortune, all of his Baker Street chambers clients, and quite possibly Laura Rankin, the love of his life. But Reggie intends to earn all of it—the money, the career, and the love—back again. His latest client is the driver of one of London’s famous black cabs, accused of murdering two American tourists. But while Reggie is working on that case, the letters to Sherlock Holmes are piling up—including one from someone who claims to be the descendant of Professor James Moriarty.

With a case that would have puzzled even Sherlock himself and a pair of brother sleuths more different than night and day, The Brothers of Baker Street is sure to please mystery fans whatever their address.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Robertson’s second mystery featuring barrister Reggie Heath…offers pacing, prose, and plotting at a level far above that of its predecessor…An extremely clever evil scheme will delight readers.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “The premise here is as intriguing as that of Barry Grant’s novels…Great fun.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “A young British barrister matches wits with a would-be Moriarty while unraveling a modern mystery…Features a thrilling climax.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Sherlock Holmes isn’t back, but Dr. Moriarty is, sort of, in this delightful romp that offers more tension and suspense than a dozen fat thrillers with bloody knives on the cover. It still manages to be funny, rather in the Kingsley Amis manner…The last third of the novel, with its murder-and-chase scene, is one of the finest, scariest sequences in current crime fiction…For anglophiles, crime-o-philes, and all fans of wonderful writing.”

    Booklist (starred review)

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Ryan Mishap | 2/14/2014

    " A solid second effort that surpasses the inaugural novel in mystery, excitement, and cohesion. What I mean is, I was eager to get back to this when I had to put it down! The Sherlock Homes association is underplayed, thankfully, while still being integral to the story and providing that little marketing pull. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Joe Nowak | 2/8/2014

    " The concept of the Brothers of Baker Street revolves around 2 modern day London barristers, Reggie and Nigel Heath, who just so happen to have their chambers in the apartment building where the legendary Sherlock Holmes was purported to have solved so many 19th century crimes. As part of their lease they are required to answer all correspondence they receive addressed to the fictional sleuth. This is how they get involved with the great great grandchild of James Moriarty. The brothers and most of the other characters in the book were uninteresting. The plot was a real stretch of the imagination and moved too slowly. If you like the British amateur detective novel, you might enjoy this. But if you're looking for a lot of action--forget about it. "

    " Really enjoyed this one as much as the first. Love the narrator, and the story. I want more! "

    " This was a pretty good book...Mystery. Very clean language but somewhat easy to figure out who done it. It was a very fast read. "
