Winners and a Sherlock Holmes Giveaway

Congratulations to the winners of the last contest. Teacup Turbulence will go to Glen D. in Yuba City, CA, and Gloria D. of Oswego, IL will receive How to Paint a Cat. The books will go out in the mail tomorrow.

This week, I have two books with traces of Sherlock Holmes in them. Michael Robertson's Moriarty Returns a Letter is a Baker Street mystery. Brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath have a hard time dealing with all the mail they receive at their London law firm. It's not their business that's booming, but that of a previous occupant. Their address is 221B Baker Street, and mail comes addressed to Sherlock Holmes. Now, someone from their past, someone they thought had disappeared, reappears causing all kinds of problems for the brothers.

Or, you could win an Advanced Reading Copy of The Spook Lights Affair by Marcia Muller and Bill Pronzini. While Carpenter and Quincannon are investigating cases in 1865 San Francisco, one unwelcome figure continues to show up. It's a man who claims he is Sherlock Holmes. To Quincannon's disgust, he always seems to have ingenious ideas about their cases.

Which mystery would you like to win? You can enter to win both, but I need separate entries. Send your entry to me at The subject line should read either "Win Moriarty Returns a Letter" or "Win The Spook Lights Affair." Please include your name and mailing address. Entries from the U.S. only, please. The contest will end Thursday, April 24 at 6 PM CT.
