Welcome, friend, to my website, the entry portal to the “Downing-verse,” Sherlock Holmes The Case of the UnDead Client  and the soon to be released Sherlock Holmes The Werewolves of Edinburgh. Here, along with other news from Department Zed and The Logres Society, you will find info about my publications, random acts of fiction, and odd thoughts on things having to do with Watson and Holmes, along with all the other characters wandering around in my world. Maybe you will find what you are looking for, or, if not, maybe you’ll find something that brings you joy or wonder. In any case, I’m glad you’re here and hope you leave a comment, add yourself to my email list, and follow along with the fun.  

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson are called to protect an Arthurian society under assault by dark, but unknown, forces. Watson takes the lead in Sherlock Holmes and the Werewolves of Edinburgh.     

It’s December 1888, and for Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, the cold of winter isn’t the only thing that’s biting.

Buy this book on Amazon and from other retailers.


Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Undead Client breathes new life into a classic series. Even Arthur Conan Doyle would be a fan of this stellar mystery that would make him wish he’d done it himself. A must-read for all mystery fans in general and Sherlock Holmes fans in particular.”

—Jon Land, USA Today bestselling author of MURDER, SHE WROTE: A Date with Murder
