Walking her dog late one night, Gemma Doyle, owner of the Sherlock Holmes Bookshop, acts quickly when she smells smoke outside the West London Museum. Fortunately no one is inside, but it's too late to save the museum's priceless collection. Baker Street's shop owners come together to hold an afternoon auction tea to raise funds to rebuild. But the auction never happens. Before the gavel can fall, museum board chair Kathy Lamb is found dead in the back room. Gemma has no intention of getting involved in the investigation, but when fellow shopkeeper Maureen finds herself the prime suspect she begs Gemma for her help. With so many suspects and so few clues, her deductive prowess will prove invaluable in this shrewdly plotted fourth Sherlock Holmes Bookshop mystery.

Review:

Praise for A Scandal in Scarlet

--Booklist

"Suggest for fans who enjoy humor in the Sherlock Holmes pastiches or readers of Carolyn Hart's 'Death on Demand' mysteries."
--Library Journal

"These books are so much fun and so well-done, it is clear that Delany is in love with her characters as much as her die-hard fans are."
--Suspense Magazine
