In 2017, Michael A. Ventrella & Jonathan Maberry invited me to contribute to Baker Street Irregulars, an anthology of alternate Sherlock Holmes stories. I hit on the idea of a modern version of Holmes and Watson, much as was done with the TV shows Sherlock and Elementary, but in this case featuring Shirley Holmes, a brilliant young grad student, and Jack Watson, an African-American medical student, in contemporary New York City. I’ve already read Shirley & Jack’s second adventure in this series, and now I read their first, which is also the first time the two of them meet. Herewith, “Identity: An Adventure of Shirley Holmes & Jack Watson.”
