My Dear Watson

A Novel of Sherlock Holmes
Borrow Borrow

The greatest mystery surrounding Sherlock Holmes comes to light: was he actually a woman? At last the master—or rather, mistress—of disguise puts pen to paper to reveal this decades-long deception and, in so doing, discovers another fact she kept secret even from herself. The complex mind of the brilliant consulting detective is finally opened to the public in the chronicle of a new case never recorded by Dr. Watson—a case featuring Constance Moriarty, the beguiling daughter of Holmes' infamous nemesis.

This prize-winning tale puts a fascinating spin on one of the most legendary characters in all of literature.

About the Author-
  • Margaret Park Bridges was born in New York City and raised in Portland, Oregon. After moving to Massachusetts, she won the Special Award for Excellence in Japan's Suntory Mystery Fiction Competition for My Dear Watson—written in Japanese. Since then, she has written and published several successful children's picture books in English. She has received awards for her poetry, and one short story she published was made into a film at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. She works in Boston and lives in Littleton, Massachusetts, with her haiku poet husband, her two talented daughters, and her adorable pug.

Reviews-
  • The Sherlock Holmes Society "Margaret Park Bridges takes an even more revisionist approach in her novel My Dear Watson. The detective's secret is disclosed at the very start of the book, and it'll do no harm to reveal it here: Sherlock Holmes was a woman. It's not a new idea but it's handled here with great skill and confidence, and it has a purpose, to account for much of Holmes' personality as described by Dr. Watson."
