“How did you word your inquiries?” [STUD]  

Sherlock Holmes has lived a rich life beyond the 60 stories written by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. A much fuller life, in fact.

When Michelle Birkby chose to write about the world of Sherlock Holmes, she took a different approach: what if, she wondered, we were to experience Victorian London through the eyes of two very capable women — two women deeply connected with Holmes and Watson.

And that is how the Baker Street Inquiry series began: through the eyes of Mrs. Hudson and Mrs. Watson. Enter a cavalcade of favorite (and in many cases, lesser-known) characters in All Roads Lead to Whitechapel, followed by No One Notices the Boys (Felony & Mayhem Press). Together, we have a new and different look at Sherlock Holmes, Dr. Watson, and Victorian women.

Where will it head next in the series? Well, 

The Canonical Couplet gives you a chance to test your creativity and knowledge with ours. If you properly guess the story we're referring to, you'll have a chance to win one of Michelle's books.
