For the fan of any mystery involving Sherlock Holmes, this nonstop action
tale will delight and satisfy you and you will definitely go looking for
other great tales by talented author Stephanie Osborn. A taste of the
future and new possibilities open up for the world purely by accident as
Dr. Skye Chadwick rescues Sherlock Holmes from the hands of his arch-enemy
Thus Sherlock finds himself pulled forward into another century and a new
life. As Sherlock adjusts to this new placement with the help of Dr.
Chadwick and others, he finds he must learn new mores as well as new
information as he becomes involved in a murderous plot to either steal or
destroy a secret project.
A glimpse into our future as knowledge expands and is put to new uses. A
great tale of suspense, romance, intrigue and action with murder added to
the mix thst draws Sherlock and Skye Chadwick into danger.
Visit the lovely Colorado mountains vividly described by author Stephanie
Osborn and the chamber where Sherlock entered his new life. The attraction
between Sherlock and Skye makes him seem much more human and approachable.
The flavor of this tale is a mix of the old and the new and, like Sherlock,
will make the reader long to return to the old times as well as love to
explore the new. I'm happy to highly recommend a fun read that kept me on
the edge of my seat, a nail biting story, beginning to end.
Enjoy. I sure did.

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...

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.

and take him into the modern day, seamlessly transitioning from Victorian to modern."
