About the Author

Claire O'Dell grew up in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., in the years of the Vietnam War and the Watergate Scandal. She attended high school just a few miles from the house where Mary Surratt once lived and where John Wilkes Booth planned for Lincoln to die. All this might explain why she spent so much time in the history and political science departments at college. Claire currently lives in Manchester, Connecticut, with her family and two idiosyncratic cats.


"The Hound of Justice is a story of resistance, to be sure, but it's also the story of the real human costs of putting everything on the line. It's also a compelling mystery, at the center of which is a Watson with the same loyalty and curiosity as the original, but with an identity and outlook far more reflective of the times in which she (and we) live." -- Barnes & Noble Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

"An engaging and ultimately deeply satisfying novel" --

"The Hound of Justice is an entertaining, engaging near-future thriller, well written and well characterised. It's not a traditional Holmes-and-Watson story--the dynamics of their relationship feel rather different to many variants--but maybe that's to its credit. I enjoyed it, and I'm definitely looking forward to the next instalment, whatever (and whenever) that may be." -- Locus

"O'Dell movingly portrays a proud woman struggling to regain her professional skills in a country still plagued by racism. Readers will hope this inventive series has a long run."
-- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"When these all-female, mostly black resistance fighters weapon up, they kick some serious bad-guy (and -girl) ass" -- Kirkus Reviews

"This is an entertaining sequel, narrated by the increasingly engaging Watson, and one hopes that the work of this Holmes and Watson will continue." -- Booklist

"Outstanding characters and superb tension make this a must read book." -- Scifi Pulse
