THE ISOLATED SEANCE, An Irregular Detective Mystery
Tim Badger was one of the Baker Street Irregulars, a London street-kid working for that most unusual of men, Sherlock Holmes. But now he’s a grown man and tries to take what he learned from Holmes to open his own consulting detective agency with his partner Benjamin Watson, a black man with a variety of past occupations that make him uniquely qualified to do detective work. But he won’t play second fiddle, and the truth of it is, Badger would be lost without him. Their first fumbling cases arouse the suspicious eye of a female journalist intent on foiling their doings. But Badger and Watson persevere, though working in the shadow of the Great Man only gets them out-flanked and just a step behind. Until they find a case Holmes won’t take.
