A stunning Dr Watson thriller perfect for all fans of Sherlock. The year is 1917 and Doctor John Watson is held in a notorious POW camp deep in enemy Germany, there as Medical Officer for the British prisoners. With the Allied blockade, food is perilously short in the camp and when a new prisoner is murdered all assume the poor chap was killed for his Red Cross parcel. Watson, though, isn't so sure. Something isn't quite what it seems and a creeping feeling of unease tells Watson 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 touched a nerve. If Watson is to reveal 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... 'Robert Ryan is the key heir apparent to Conan Doyle' Barry Forshaw, Financial Times Praise for Dead Man's Land: 'A hugely powerful depiction of wartime horror, a cunning murder mystery and a brilliant re-invention of Dr John Watson. Conan Doyle would most definitely approve!' Mark Billingham 'A vivid account of life in the trenches...this is a genuinely fascinating and finely researched piece of war fiction' Daily Express 'A page-turning read' Daily Mail Praise for The Dead Can Wait: 'Seriously good, very readable, well-researched novel' The Times 'A cracking, fulfilling, utterly satisfying read' Manda Scott 'A clever and interesting period piece' Literary Review
