If Sherlock Holmes had a daughter...

She would have a keen eye, deductive abilities, a brave heart and a streak of independence.

THE CROWN JEWEL MYSTERY is the prequel to the series and provides background to Lucy's arrival in London and a near miss encounter with Watson and Holmes.  The story is told in alternating chapters by Lucy and Watson.  In this prequel, Lucy proves her worth in a crisis situation at the Oxford Street branch of the Capital and Counties Bank.  She's charming, witty, smart and tough... and pretty good with a hairpin!

 

I couldn't ask for a better role than LUCY JAMES!

But my skirts are constantly edged in London mud...
