     "A Baker Street baker's dozen: twelve delightfully insightful essays on Sherlock Holmes and his creator, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle—plus a bonus treat! Featured are Jeff’s works that, for three years running (2018-2020), earned Sigerson Awards for creative writing from the Norwegian Explorers of Minnesota.

     “Other entries include observations and explorations, TV, film and book reviews, scholarly studies, epiphanic events and more. An extra chapter at the end tells the history of Holmes in light-hearted limericks that hit all the highlights of Doyle’s beloved Sherlockian Canon. Part memoir, part marketing tool, all marvelous fun, with enough pictures to start a scrapbook. Whether you’re meeting Holmes and Doyle for the first time or are a lifelong fan, you’ll find plenty to pique your interest in this clever collection.”

Sherlock Holmes & the County Courthouse Caper
(in eBook 11/11/20, ISIN B08JP77KBV)

​      It’s November 1886 in the tiny frontier town of Browns Valley, Minnesota. A pioneer family’s idyllic life is suddenly disrupted by a series of discoveries: Six dead bodies, each hanging in a tree, with a letter burned into their forehead by a branding iron. 

     What do the letters spell? And who is the killer?

​      Even the great Sherlock Holmes is baffled---until a 12-year-old frontier lad named Petey Smith, and a pair of mixed bloods called Iron Will and Muley, come to his aid. The history, geography and cultural diversity of the Minnesota River Valley are intertwined with tales of political corruption, deceit, vengeance and murder in this intriguing blend of fact and fiction.

Sherlock Holmes: In Search of the Source
(in eBook 11/18/20, ISIN B08JYHXWFH)

     It’s December 1896 in the booming capital city of St. Paul, Minnesota. Amid thousands of German, Irish and Swedish immigrants, Sherlock Holmes has returned to America to attend the wedding of Peter Smith, whom he’d befriended 10 years earlier in the case of the County Courthouse Caper.

​     Suddenly, there are complications: An overnight fire. A life’s work destroyed. And worse: A dead body. The only clues? A pair of boot prints. A mysterious fuel. A missing sword. Eventually, a member of Peter’s bridal party is implicated in arson---and murder. Now, Sherlock Holmes must race against time, and an overzealous police detective, to solve the crime, before the nuptials can proceed.​
