The Real Sherlock Holmes: The Hidden Story of Jerome Caminada

by Angela Buckley Author

Truth is stranger than fiction, and if you delighted in the fictional adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the travails of the real Victorian detective Jerome Caminada are just waiting to be explored. Caminada spent his career fighting against the 19th century Mancunian underworld, using disguises and logic to foil pickpockets and poisoners alike. He unraveled the Hackney Carriage Murder, went on secret missions for the government, and even had his own version of Moriarty. It's Sherlock Holmes meets true crime and you already know you want to read it.
