Description

With an intellect as sharp as his right cross, Honest John Churchfield is one of the great detectives of 19th-century London. His singular sleuthing style, equal parts sarcasm, brutality, and alcohol consumption, leaves him second to none. Unfortunately, Sherlock Holmes casts an enormous shadow. While the public at large may not know his story, criminals fear the name Honest John. "Honest John Churchfield" is a collection of five Churchfield adventures, blending old-fashioned, Sherlock Holmes-style mysteries with generous amounts of comedy. "Honest John and the Missing Maidens" tells of a mysterious art heist baffling all London. "Honest John and the Irregular Medium" has our hero matching wits with a fraudulent fortuneteller. "Honest John Takes a Wife" features Churchfield foiling a rogue hypnotist. "Honest John Comes to Dinner" puts a new slant on brotherly love. And "Honest John Steals the Show" sees a night at the theater turn deadly.
