“I am one of the hounds” [STUD]  

The golden age of Hollywood brought us stars like William Powell and Myrna Loy, and of course Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce.

In Elizabeth Crowens' new novel Hounds of the Hollywood Baskervilles, we find them (and Dashiell Hammett) intervowen in a story that begins with the disappearance of Asta from The Thin Man movies, and Rathbone's own lost pup. Young private detectives Babs Norman and Guy Brandt team up with him to dig up the reasons behind these canine crimes.

Elizabeth joined us to talk about her Sherlockian and historical fiction writing amid her busy book launch schedule. It's a fascinating and fun conversation.

We have Sherlockian news, as well as another round of the Canonical Couplet quiz. It's a super-easy one this time. The winner, chosen at random from all correct answers, will receive a copy of Hounds of the Hollywood Baskervilles. Send your answer to comment @ ihearofsherlock .com by April 29, 2024 at 11:59 a.m. EDT.
