"Somewhere in the vaults of the bank of Cox and Co., at Charing Cross, there is a travel-worn and battered tin dispatch-box with my name, John H. Watson, M.D., painted upon the lid. It is crammed with papers, nearly all of which are records of cases to illustrate the curious problems which Mr. Sherlock Holmes has at various times to examine."

Mrs. Hudson and the Spirits' Curse (2022)

Mrs. Hudson takes center stage in this adventure first published in 2004. Part of a five book series of Mrs. Hudson adventures.

What if Baker Street’s most gifted resident wasn't named Sherlock Holmes? What if, instead, that title belonged to his unassuming housekeeper, Mrs.Hudson? Playfully breaking with convention, Mrs. Hudson and the Spirits' Curse brings a fresh twist to the classic Victorian mystery. 
An evil stalks London, blown in from the tropics. Stories of cursed giant rats and malign spirits haunt the garrets of the East London neighborhood of Limehouse. A group of merchants are dying one by one. The elementary choice to investigate these mysterious deaths is, of course, the team of Holmes and Dr Watson. But the unique gifts of their housekeeper, Mrs Hudson, and her orphaned assistant Flotsam, will also be needed to solve the case. Can she do it all under the nose of Sherlock himself?
