Larry Millett for "Sherlock Holmes and the Eisendorf Enigma"

  • SubText Books 6 West 5th Street Saint Paul, MN, 55102 United States (map)

Join us on Thursday, March 9th at 7pm to hear Larry Millett read and discuss his new novel "Sherlock Holmes and the Eisendorf Enigma" (University of Minnesota Press, Feb. 2017). Book signing to follow. 

A murderer who eluded him in Munich draws an aging Sherlock Holmes into a monstrous mystery in small-town Minnesota in 1920. Sherlock Holmes is preparing to leave Minnesota and return to England when a note slips under his hotel room door, from a vicious murderer he’d nearly captured in Munich in 1892, announcing his relocation to Eisendorf, a tiny village near Rochester, Minnesota. Holmes must match wits with a fiendish opponent who taunts him right up to a final, explosive confrontation.  

Larry Millett is the author of twenty books, including seven mystery novels—mostly set in Minnesota—featuring Sherlock Holmes and St. Paul detective Shadwell Rafferty. A longtime reporter and architecture critic for the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Millett is also the author of numerous books on architecture.
