Hot on the heels of The Scoundrel of Bohemia comes The Lavender Men by Adem Rolfe, the second volume in our continuing series of steampunk adventures. Our first original tale, it is available in both paperback and ebook formats from Amazon.

When Doctor Watson is reunited with Murray, his loyal wartime orderly, he and Sherlock Holmes become embroiled in the affairs of the New East India Company. What exactly is transcendent anatomy? Do dead soldiers really fight for the Crown?

Bodysnatchers. Mad Science. The Walking Dead.

Only by investigating the dark secrets of a Limehouse laboratory can the great detective discover the truth. Elsewhere, Holmes must unravel a case involving killer puppets, a child prodigy, toxic tea and an encounter with the most indomitable woman he may ever cross wits against. Additional content includes a second story, an essay on the Baker Street Irregulars, plus the Baker Street Broadcast (incorporating our very own Sherlockian crossword).
