A strange sickness affecting the members of the House of Lords starts a new adventure for Holmes and Watson, one that will see them on the run, accused of murder and pursued by both the police and a deadly gang of assassins.
The case takes them up and down the country, from Scotland to the Houses of Parliament and leads them down arcane paths, following their relentless foe in pursuit of the lost secret of immortality.
Their adversary seems hell-bent, not only on their destruction but on an act of terrorism that will shake London to its foundations.
Holmes must catch and unmask the revenant, and only by confronting his own past will he be able to prevail.
I've written a few Holmes stories in the past few years. The first one was THE QUALITY OF MERCY in Gaslight Grotesque.
Since then I’ve done THE CALL OF THE DANCE, published in the Lovecraft ezine, THE COLOUR THAT CAME TO CHISWICK in Gaslight Arcanum, I’m in the middle of a collaboration on THE GHOST SHIRT with Steve Lockley, and now I have the novella from Dark Regions, SHERLOCK HOLMES: REVENANT
It is the characters first and foremost that draws me to it. Doyle brought Holmes to life. He is instantly recognizable all over the world and has been for over 100 years. Few other writers have managed that trick.
It’s also the setting for me. I was raised on Doyle, Wells and Robert Louis Stevenson and I love that historical period they covered in their work. It’s also the time period I’ve come to prefer for my own writing and I can see me settling in there for a long time to come.
Revenant is a supernatural mystery, fast paced and taking Holmes and Watson up and down the length of Britain. They're on the run from the police having been framed for murder, and have to find out who is behind it. This proves difficult, as their adversary is capable of hiding in plain sight.
The clues lead them to an alchemist in Scotland, and deeper mysteries where they find their case linked to the quest for immortality, and a plot that might bring down the British Empire.
