Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Alliance
On the eve of President William McKinley's visit to Minneapolis in 1899, the body of a union activist is found strung from a tree outside a ruined mansion, with a placard around his neck bearing the ominous words the secret alliance has spoken. Shadwell Rafferty, a local saloonkeeper with a passion for "the detectin' game," embarks on his first case and uncovers more questions than answers. As the puzzle deepens, Rafferty is joined, just in time, by his old friends Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Filled with history, suspense, and vivid characters, this is a magnificent addition to Larry Millett's entertaining series of Sherlock Holmes mysteries.
