Whether you're a fan of the BBC show, the classic stories, or both, I think we all can agree that the world can't have enough eccentric crime-solving people. There are countless mysteries floating around public libraries today, but not too many Holmes-inspired ones (I kid.) As a fan of both the show and the books, I've found a few novels that can satisfy any Sherlockian's hunger for more Watson and Holmes. Check these out, especially while you wait for season 4 of the hit BBC show to hit TV.

NUMBER 1: A STUDY IN CHARLOTTE // BRITTANY CAVALLARO

          My personal favorite of the selection, ASIC blends contemporary novel with brilliant crime-solving. And what I love about this beginning of a series is that these are not Sherlock and Watson- these are their descendants. A name to live up to adds an entirely new level of pressure. Click on the cover to place a hold on either the audio or print version.

 

NUMBER 2: EVERY BREATH // ELLIE MARNEY

          This is not the Holmes you know. This is Mycroft and Watts, an Australian-written novel inspired by our favorite crime-solving duo. The Australian writing lends a unique flavor to this novel, and I'm sure you'll love the taste of another country. Again, click the cover image to get it from the library.

 

NUMBER 3: TROUBLE IS A FRIEND OF MINE // STEPHANIE TROMLY

          Although this one didn't quite grab me (the zany characters are a little too out there for my taste), I've heard a lot of rave reviews, so I'm adding it to my list. Click the cover to see if it's for you!
