Sherlock and the "wild west" of the United States meet in this fun and quick paced book about old manuscripts, railway magnets and even a fun brothel thrown in.

If you are alert, you will realize early on the reason for the 'evil' threatening the railroad. However, there are several red herrings tossed around that confuse who the bad guy is. But I had a couple of suspects in mind long before the end.

Still, there are surprises and it is a well told tale.

The first in a series of adventures in which Sherlock Holmes travels to the American midwest to solve various. The first ( and best) case involves a mysterious arsonist who is intent on destroying the Great Northern Railroad, even if it means burning down entire forests and town...and anyone who stands in the way. Each book is a mixture of fictional characters set in actual historical events and figures. Also introduces Shadwell Raffety, a colorful tavern owner and amatuer sleuth, who will figure more promientently in later books. I loving homage to Holmes written very stylishly and lovingly.
