The Devil’s Grin
ANNA KRONBERG, BOOK 1
“…a formidable dark-romantic conspiracy novel. A duel of two deduction monsters.”
“…a powerful debut.”
“…one of the best Sherlock Holmes novels of all time.”
In Victorian London’s cesspool of crime and disease, a series of murders remains undiscovered until a cholera victim is found floating in the city’s drinking water supply. Dr Anton Kronberg, England’s best bacteriologist, is called upon to investigate and finds evidence of abduction and medical maltreatment. While Scotland Yard has little interest in pursuing the case, Kronberg pushes on and crosses paths with Sherlock Holmes. The detective immediately discovers Kronberg’s secret – a woman masquerading as a man in order to practice medicine – a criminal deed that could land her in prison for years to come. But both must join forces to stop a crime so monstrous, it outshines Jack the Ripper’s deeds in brutality and cold-bloodedness.
ANNA KRONBERG, BOOK 2
“…dynamite! (…) unparalleled in detective literature.”
Eluding Scotland Yard and Sherlock Holmes, Anna Kronberg leads an inconspicuous life far from London. Until the day she wakes up to a gun pressed against her temple. With her father held hostage and no help in sight, Anna finds only one way out – to take her captor for a dance along the razor’s edge while delving into Britain’s tentative beginnings of espionage and systematic biological warfare.
ANNA KRONBERG, BOOK 3
“I loved this whole series, outstanding!”
Pregnant with her enemy’s child and with an assassin following her every step, Anna Kronberg must hurry to find the true motivation behind Moriarty’s plan to use disease as a weapon. Bit by bit, she and Sherlock Holmes unravel a spiderweb of crime, espionage, and bioterrorism that spreads across continents.
The Lion’s Courtship
ANNA KRONBERG, PREQUEL
“A hypnotic journey.”
Anna Kronberg isn’t precisely what one would consider a good Victorian gentlewoman. Disguised as Anton, she has a challenging career as a male medical doctor during the day. At night, she’s an unflinching nurse who treats the members of her colourful and impoverished neighbourhood.
Garret O’Hare is handsome, charming, never without his set of lockpicks, and bleeding heavily from a gunshot wound. So he does what he does best: he breaks into the home of the neighbourhood nurse, hoping she’ll save his life.
Anna, however, doesn’t need anyone poking around in her private life. And she most certainly doesn’t need a bloody thief collapsing into her bed in the dead of night.
