Where Evil Lies Buried

1896: Sherlock Holmes has once again hit the headlines, solving mysteries for the cream of aristocracy. But among the workhouses and pudding shops of South London, private detective William Arrowood is presented with far grittier, more violent and considerably less well-paid cases. Arrowood has no doubt who is the better detective, and when Mr. and Mrs. Barclay engage him to find their estranged daughter, Birdie, he’s sure it won’t be long before he and his assistant, Barnett, have tracked her down.

But this seemingly simple missing-person case soon turns into a murder investigation. Far from the comfort of Baker Street, Arrowood’s London is a city of unrelenting cruelty, where evil is waiting to be uncovered… Download and start listening now!

  • “A tale built on a wonderful premise: a downscale Sherlock Holmes for the rest of us.”

    Kirkus Reviews on Arrowood

  • “Fiercely edgy…Finlay captures the filth, frustration, and dark humor of the Victorian-era slum…Doyle’s fans will be entertained.”
