In Son of Holmes, John Lescroart introduced Auguste Lupa, reputed son of the greatest detective of all time… and possessor of a brilliant deductive mind in his own right.
Now, in Rasputin’s Revenge, Lupa is summoned to the court of the Russian Czar — where, with a bit of unexpected assistance from none other than Holmes and Watson, he untangles a chilling plot that holds the Winter Palace in a lethal grip…
Praise for Son of Holmes and John Lescroart
“Detective fans will lap up the details of
Lupa’s [Holmesian] heritage.” —Publishers Weekly
“Raymond Chandler once wrote that the test of a first-rate murder mystery is whether you would keep reading it if the last chapter — and the revelation of whodunit — were missing. In the matter of John Lescroart, I would keep reading any of his books, even without that last chapter.” —Fort Worth Star-Telegram
