Night Watch: A Long-Lost Adventure in Which Sherlock Holmes Meets Father Brown

Stephen Kendrick


during this brilliantly crafted pastiche, Stephen Kendrick brings Sherlock Holmes and Father Brown jointly in an unheard of collaboration on a singularly surprising homicide case.

It is Christmas Day, 1902, and a priest’s mutilated physique has been present in a London church that's web hosting a mystery interfaith assembly to debate the opportunity of a Parliament of worldwide Religions. A summons from the best Minister plunges Holmes right into a case with foreign, political, and ecclesiastical problems. Untrampled snow surrounding the church means that the assassin is still inside and that he's, possibly, one of many leaders of the world’s nice faiths.

Throughout the evening, as extra deaths are stumbled on, Holmes and Dr. Watson stick with one fake lead after one other. yet along with his mythical astuteness, Holmes manages to wrap the case up in lower than twenty-four hours—or so it kind of feels. weeks later, Father Brown, the meek younger priest-translator, will pay a decision at Baker road to bare “a few unfastened ends.”

The intersection of faith and politics, religion and sin, enmity and forgiveness—these topics are subtly interwoven into this fast moving secret that's packed with vintage intrigue.
