Michael Robertson has delighted mystery readers and Sherlock Holmes aficionados everywhere with his charming and innovative Baker Street mystery series, where brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath are charged with answering letters to Sherlock that arrive at their law office, located at 221B Baker Street. Everyone must do jury duty. Even Sherlock Holmes. A nation’s greatest sports hero has been accused of murder. The trial is approaching, and the public is clamoring—both for and against. And in a desperate, computer-generated quest to fill its quota of jurors, the Crown Court has included on its summons list the known occupants—real and otherwise—of 221B Baker Street. One summons is addressed to Sherlock Holmes; it doesn’t matter to the Crown Court Jury Selection Service whether Holmes is real or fictional, or in which century he existed. The other is addressed to Mr. Nigel Heath—who is living and sleeping on the couch in his office at Baker Street Chambers. With Nigel in the jury selection pool are a lovely young woman with a mysterious tattoo, an elderly widow with piercing blue eyes and a mind like a tack, a slick millennial whose occupation is cornering the market on prescription drugs, and a tall man with an aquiline nose who seems reluctant to say exactly how he received his jury summons. Before the trial is done, Nigel and each of his fellow prospective jurors will wonder not only which of them will be impaneled—and what verdict they will reach—but also who will survive to render it.

Even the creator of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, would rave about the Baker Street mystery series! A Baker Street Wedding is another winner, and not to be missed. "Any [Sherlock] Holmes fan would enjoy Michael Robertson's fresh new take on the Holmes stories...fast-paced and thoroughly entertaining." —CNN, Must Read Books on The Baker Street Translation "Agatha Christie fans will revel in Robertson’s fifth novel...a classic fair play whodunit leavened with humor." —Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Baker Street Jurors The wedding of Reggie Heath and the celebrated actress Laura Rankin was reported in all the tabloids—which is to say, it was a disaster. Now, in a remote village on the British coast, locked in by sea cliffs on one side and moors on the other, the newlywed’s plane—piloted by Laura—has landed. Reggie doesn’t understand why Laura has picked this god-forsaken hamlet for their honeymoon. What is she keeping from him? The answers are in Laura’s past, but she’s not saying, and Reggie is out of his depth. He must have help—or his worst fears and more will be realized.

"A massive volume which prints verbatim the reports by expert panels of jurors on the objects displayed at the Great Exhibition of 1851. Medals were to be given for the best of the exhibits, a larger and more prestigious one for "important novelty of invention or application, either in material, or processes of manufacture, or originality combined with great beauty of design", and a smaller medal for "excellence in production or workmanship", and the jurors who awarded these included such notable individuals as Michael Faraday, Joseph Hooker, George Rennie, Lewis Gruner, J.G.Crace, Panizzi, Cockerell and Pugin. The volume also prints a lengthy and interesting "Supplementary Report on Design" by Richard Redgrave, praising and criticising the general state of contemporary design as evidenced by the exhibits. Copies of it were specifically intended for presentation to exhibitors (hence the words "presentation copy" which appear as part of the volume’s printed title). "--abebooks website.
