"In Son of Holmes, Auguste Lupa, Sherlock Holmes' putative son, must assume the role of his legendary father. In a small French town in the dark days of World War I, two French intelligence agents are searching for a mastermind assassin. One of the agents is killed and Lupa himself is suspected. Lupa not only uses his masterful powers of deduction to identify the real killer, but in a finale worthy of the master himself, lays bare an ingenious act of sabotage." "In Rasputin's Revenge, the son of Holmes returns and the game is on. Czarina Alexandra summons Lupa to the court of Czar Nicholas, whose advisors are being assassinated one by one. In a virtuoso performance of deductive reasoning, Lupa uncovers the conspiracy and its perpetrators."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
