The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes by Leonard Goldberg

You know, there are times that I have absolutely no idea how I found a book. I think I found the Daughter of Sherlock Holmes because one of my friends on Goodreads was reading it, but honestly I’m not sure. Regardless of how I found it, I decided that it should be my next read.

A quote from the Daughter of Sherlock Holmes by Leonard Goldberg

Dr. John Watson, Jr is the son of Sherlock Holmes’s great friend Dr John Watson, Sr. While visiting his father, they had a visitor asking for help. You would have thought that Sherlock was still about. Mary Harrelston came to ask Dr Watson to look into her brother’s death as it was being touted as a suicide. She firmly believed that he would have never commited suicide. The Watsons agree to look into it.

Joanna Blalock is a widow. She and her son had been out for a walk when Johnnie, the son, saw Charles Harrelston “float down from the roof.” As an eyewitness, of course, the Watsons had to interview them. Yet, the senior Watson was interested in meeting Joanna for yet another reason.

Brief Summary (while trying not to give everything away)

In The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes, the Watsons recruit Joanna Blalock to help them solve the mystery behind Charles Harrelston’s death. Yet, there are more bodies that pile up. It takes all of Joanna’s deductive skills, inherited from both parents- one Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler, to solve this one.


The Daughter of Sherlock Holmes is a must read for anyone who loves Sherlock. It’s such a good story, full of deductions and twists. It mainly features second generation characters, but oh how well this works. If you’re a fan of mysteries where you know who did it, but are just figuring out how, then you should read this one.
