A rollicking murder mystery! 

Newly-acquainted roommates Sherley Holmes & Joan Watson join forces to emerge from pandemic fog as an oddball adventure duo-solving mysteries and kicking butts. An irreverent, darkly comic, modern take on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous sleuth and sidekick, this fast-paced romp re-examines the world’s most famous detective story with a bold, fresh feminist lens.
