For the ninth book in the Richard Sherlock Whodunit Series, there’s good news and bad news.

The Bad News: A rich guy drowns off the back of his yacht. Sherlock can’t find the killer or discover the motive. Kelly is learning how to drive. Herman is coaching Care in the finer points of computer gaming. Tiffany gets ghosted. Sherlock’s beloved 1992 Toyota Tercel dies a horrible death. Sherlock’s back goes out again. Ouch!

The Good News: Sherlock rises above poverty level; he’s finally in the money! Tiffany gets yet another new car. Mr. Richmond saves six-millon-dollars (minus the cost of Tiffany’s newest Mercedes).

Sherlock’s back is finally cured. And best of all, Sherlock finds a girlfriend!


I love the Sherlock detective novels. Jim Stevens writes in a manner than is intriguing and entertaining; with more than a few, “tongue in cheek” references. Each book can be read independently, but to get the full character back stories start with the first book. Richard Sherlock is a guy I would want to share a beer with. A single dad just trying to make it through life. I waited for two years for Jim to return to this series. It was well worth it.
