The ninth and final Minnesota mystery, in which Shadwell Rafferty, with the inimitable Sherlock Holmes, may have solved his own murder

Larry Millett will join Next Chapter Booksellers for a reading and signing of his new book, Rafferty's Last Case: A Minnesota Mystery Featuring Sherlock Holmes, on Wednesday, June 8 at 6:00p.m. 

When news of Shadwell Rafferty’s death reaches Sherlock Holmes, the world’s most famous detective and his redoubtable companion Watson rush to Minnesota to hunt for their friend’s killer. Set amid the glittering society and sordid underworld of 1928 St. Paul, Larry Millett’s ninth and final Shadwell Rafferty mystery takes readers through the serpentine twists of Rafferty’s fatal investigation.

"Richly woven and sprinkled with moments of humor and pathos, Rafferty's Last Case is maybe his best case. The genius of Larry Millett's adventures is how he weaves local history, culture, personalities, architecture, and the Holmes canon together in a way that finds me always asking for more. His final account of the late, great Shadwell Rafferty hooked me from the start. An ultimate triumph!"—Tim Johnson, Curator of the Sherlock Holmes Collections, University of Minnesota Libraries

"Murder, blackmail, and the foulest corruption have turned 1928 St. Paul, Minnesota, into a frozen Gomorrah. Even the world’s greatest consulting detective may have met his match when he wades into the icy muck hunting the killer of an old friend in Larry Millett’s latest Sherlock Holmes American adventure. Propelled by a hair-raising plot, rich in period detail, and crawling with intriguing characters, Rafferty’s Last Case is a terrific read."—W.A. Winter, author of The Secret Lives of Dentists
