About the author

Michael Robertson

Michael Robertson is the author of The Baker Street Letters series, published by St. Martin's Press: "Agatha Christie fans will revel in Robertson’s fifth novel [The Baker Street Jurors] featuring London solicitor Nigel Heath (after 2014’s Moriarty Returns a Letter). . . . This is Robertson’s best work yet, a classic fair play whodunit leavened with humor." Publishers Weekly, starred review "Sherlock Holmes isn't back, but Dr. Moriarty is, sort of, in this delightful romp [The Brothers of Baker Street] 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." -- From Booklist (Starred Review) The Brothers of Baker Street is available as an audio book, published by Blackstone Audio.
