About the Author

Robert J. Harris was born in Dundee and now lives in St Andrews with his wife, sons and his dog. He is the author of many children's books, including zany Norse-god trilogy The World's Gone Loki! And two other books in the Artie Conan Doyle series.


'Like all the other books in this series, there is a fantastic plot full of imagination, which has been executed particularly well. It has twists and turns which leave many possibles alternatives to develop and explore. There are many quirky details included which provide a great reading experience. The time and gothic setting have a wide and fantastic appeal. Historically, it makes the story very interesting and atmospheric...' - Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books

'Amusing, entertaining and - dare I say it - educational.'
- The Sherlock Holmes Society

Praise for the Artie Conan Doyle series:

'...the stories are a clever mix of puzzle, conspiracy and history - late Victorian Edinburgh is brought to vivid life. Satisfying adventure stories in their own right, with a good helping of humour to ease and then emphasise the tension, these are also excellent introductions to the works of the great man himself.'
- Lovereading4kids

'The plot is filled with twists and turns, keeping even the most reluctant reader engaged. VERDICT An enticing mystery for fans of detective fiction who may not be ready to tackle the real Conan Doyle's works.'
- School Library Journal

'This quick read with likeable characters has just enough camaraderie, spookiness, and suspense to capture tepid readers. As an added attraction, young readers can glean some facts about the celebrated author.'
- School Library Connection

'Robert Harris has written a 19th century crime story, which weaves historical detail and interest into its plot to create a fast-moving and well-written novel... This is a highly readable book for 9-13 both as a gripping mystery novel but also as a staging post for further historical research and perhaps as a precursor to reading the real Conan Doyle books in maturity.'
- School Library Association
