"Michael Robertson has delighted mystery readers and Sherlock Holmes aficionados everywhere with his charming and innovative Baker Street mystery series, where brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath are charged with answering letters to Sherlock that arrive at their law office, located at 221B Baker Street. In the exclusive London suburb of Hampstead Heath, Rory McSweeny--a true national hero, having led the England cricket team to successive international championships--is accused of murdering his own wife with his own cricket bat. As preparations are made for the trial, the Royal Mail delivers two jury summonses to a law chambers located at Dorset House in the two hundred block of Baker Street. One summons is addressed to Nigel Heath. The other is addressed to Sherlock Holmes. And because Baker Street Law Chambers encompasses the address 221B Baker Street, both letters end up on Nigel's desk. There are twelve empaneled jurors--plus the alternates. But, an unfortunate accident befalls one of the jurors. And then things get worse. Jurors are dropping like flies, and they don't know who is doing it or why--or which of them will be next"--

Michael Robertson has delighted mystery readers and Sherlock Holmes aficionados everywhere with his charming and innovative Baker Street mystery series, where brothers Reggie and Nigel Heath are charged with answering letters to Sherlock that arrive at their law office, located at 221B Baker Street.

Everyone must do jury duty. Even Sherlock Holmes.

A nation’s greatest sports hero has been accused of murder. The trial is approaching, and the public is clamoring—both for and against. And in a desperate, computer-generated quest to fill its quota of jurors, the Crown Court has included on its summons list the known occupants—real and otherwise—of 221B Baker Street. One summons is addressed to Sherlock Holmes; it doesn’t matter to the Crown Court Jury Selection Service whether Holmes is real or fictional, or in which century he existed.

The other is addressed to Mr. Nigel Heath—who is living and sleeping on the couch in his office at Baker Street Chambers. With Nigel in the jury selection pool are a lovely young woman with a mysterious tattoo, an elderly widow with piercing blue eyes and a mind like a tack, a slick millennial whose occupation is cornering the market on prescription drugs, and a tall man with an aquiline nose who seems reluctant to say exactly how he received his jury summons.

Before the trial is done, Nigel and each of his fellow prospective jurors will wonder not only which of them will be impaneled—and what verdict they will reach—but also who will survive to render it.

I was looking forward to this latest novel having just learned of the series recently and read the others. But was rather disappointed in it. Unlike a movie where the lead actor might be too busy to play an active role in it so is in the background, this is a book! What i considered the main character, Reggie, was off on his honeymoon so the prodigal brother Nigel returned home and was the main character and annoyingly allowed to be on a jury. Mr Know It All. Story wasn't bad, just wasn't impressed with a supporting character being the lead, just wasn't that strong a persona. Much better as a side kick. Hope Reggie is back if there is another book.
