Tommy Hancock, host of One-Two Punch on TMVCafe, gives both volumes of The Case of the
Displaced Detective his highest rating of TKO!
I just finished "The Arrival" and immediately bought "At Speed." Thank you, this is a
lovely reinterpretation of my favorite detective.

So I read two really good books this week, both of Novelist Stephanie Osborn's
Displaced Detective novels. I'm eagerly awaiting #3, now...

Wow! I'm reading Stephanie Osborn's book The Case of the Displaced Detective: At Speed.
Who knew that Scientists could harbor thought like that! Probably the *Best* Love Scene
I've read!...Just about any grade school boy can write "Porn", but to describe a love scene,
and make the reader "see" the scene, without revulsion, takes a wordsmith of power.

I get Sherlockian books in the mail from lots of people eager to use our website as a
launching pad for their books. Often I am disappointed in what I read, feeling that the
author really has little understanding of what Sir Arthur Conan Doyle was all about
with his Sherlock Holmes stories.
Not so with Stephanie Osborn, our own Boswell (SCAN). And I helped her launch her
double book story about Holmes in the future not just because she IS a rocket scientist,
but because she has a firm grasp of storytelling, character, dialogue, and imagination.
She also understands how to handle Holmes in plotting his actions in another time. I
found The Case of the Displaced Detective a marvelous read, and will relish further
Sherlockian stories from this talented writer.

The Case of the Displaced Detective: At Speed is a read for the romantic. Containing
romantic sensuality, intrigue, mystery and suspense, it lures the reader in deeper with
each page. All readers will enjoy his further adventures and deepening relationship with
Skye, the brilliant scientist responsible for saving his life, not once, but twice, at risk to
her own life. Written by talented author, Stephanie Osborn, it is one of those tales guaranteed
to make fans of any genre look for the next installment of the Displaced Detective. From
the worrisome opening to the suspenseful ending, Ms Osborn has crafted a tale expanding
the possibilities of the famous detective's legend.

Reading Reality says, “These [books] are just plain fun!”
"... Stephanie Osborn in her Displaced Detective series has found a science fiction
– not fantasy – way to bring Sherlock Holmes into our world...this is a Holmes who
has to adjust to being rudely extracted, plunged into the 21st Century with no way
to return...here is the real Homes, at the height of his powers, in 21st Century America,
much as I would imagine he would be...But he’s still Holmes, and I found
the series well worth reading. Recommended."
