Fans of Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes will recall the public outcry when the famous detective fell off the waterfall – but what if the ending were different? What if, instead of laying low, Holmes was instead propelled through a portal. A portal that led to our time! Welcome to The Displaced Detective Series by Stephanie Osborn from Twilight Times Books!
Displaced Detective is a science fiction mystery in which brilliant hyperspatial physicist, Dr. Skye Chadwick, discovers there are alternate realities, often populated by those we consider only literary characters. Her pet research, Project: Tesseract, hidden deep under Schriever AFB, finds Continuum 114, where Sherlock Holmes was to have died along with Moriarty at the Reichenbach Falls. Knee-jerking, Skye rescues Holmes, who inadvertently flies through the wormhole to our universe, while his enemy plunges to his death. Unable to go back without causing devastating continuum collapse, Holmes must stay in our world and adapt.
Meanwhile, the Schriever AFB Dept of Security discovers a spy ring working to dig out the details of – and possibly sabotage – Project: Tesseract.
Can Chadwick help Holmes come up to speed in modern investigative techniques in time to stop the spies? Will Holmes be able to thrive in our modern world? Is Chadwick now Holmes’ new “Watson” – or more?
And what happens next?

“[The] books are wonderful. They go a step beyond what we think of as Holmes and take him into the modern day, seamlessly transitioning from Victorian to modern.”
