About The Book

An exciting Dr. Watson thriller perfect for all fans of Sherlock.

The year is 1917, and Dr. John Watson is held in a notorious POW camp deep in Germany to offer medical assistance to British prisoners.

With the Allied blockade, food is perilously scarce, and when a new prisoner is murdered everyone assumes the poor chap was killed for his Red Cross parcel.

Watson, though, isn't so sure. A creeping feeling of unease leads Watson to believe there is more to this than meets the eye. And when an escape plot is apparently uncovered in his hut and he is sent to solitary confinement, he knows he has hit a nerve.

If Watson is to uncover the heinous crimes that have occurred at the camp, he must escape before he is silenced for good. All he needs is some long-distance help from his old friend, Sherlock Holmes…
