Description

Holmes and Watson.
The centuries-old names continue to thrill crime and mystery lovers around the world.
Now, the mysterious and bestselling author Hadley Colt breathes sexy new life into the timeless legend of The Great Detective.
We are witness to a young Sherlock Holmes, brilliant, arrogant and at the start of what promises to be a stellar career as the world's first and only consulting detective.
Enter Jona Watson, a fetching young forensics student recruited to go undercover in a tony private school rocked by scandalous affairs between teachers and students.
A primary suspect Jona is directed to investigate: the mysterious and slightly odd, newly hired chemistry teacher named Mr. William Sherlock Holmes, a charismatic enigma.
But Ms. Watson also harbours her own wrenching secrets.
Erotic, fast-paced, yet brilliantly true to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's classic characters, this is a tour-de-force exploration and subtle reinvention of the beloved sleuth.
"The Red-Handed League" is a gripping new Sherlock Holmes tale at last revealing the dark and intensely private mystery that secretly shaped and which drives fiction's most famous detective.
