Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler retrace the steps of pirates as they uncover a conspiracy at the heart of Florida’s islands. Death threats and gangsters are not enough to stop the pair as they meet new friends and enemies while seeking pirate treasure and preserving law and order.
Amy Thomas is one of the Baker Street Babes, the world’s most popular Sherlock Holmes podcast. The Detective, The Woman and The Pirate’s Bounty is Amy’s fourth Holmes and Adler novel – The Detective and The Woman, and The Detective and The Woman and the Winking Tree, and The Detective and The Woman and The Silent Hive have sold worldwide with wonderful reviews with the first book available in audio format as well.



Sherlock Holmes is travelling to Florida, to find or disprove the existence of pirate treasure. He’s in the company of The Woman, Irene Adler…..who is assisting him and honing her observation skills…

Dr Watson, is left in London, courting Holmes’ ex-housekeeper….

Written in the style of Arthur Conan Doyle, this is a new adventure with the associated perils and deductions…just who is the Baron? And will they both survive?

A lovely, well written return to a classic, much loved, detective in a new tale by Amy Thomas. An immensely enjoyable read….
