The Crack in the Lens (Paperback)
It's 1893 and things finally seem to be going right for the Amlingmeyer brothers, Otto "Big Red," and Gustav "Old Red." After years of hard knocks, they finally have a bit of money and spare time to do something other than scramble. Soon the Amlingmeyers find themselves in a situation that they never expected, and this time, it's personal. Years before, Old Red lost his fiance and one true love to a brutal killer, and the case was swept under the rug by the local authorities. Now, Old Red is determined to find out what really happened and to finally find a measure of justice for his beloved. Yet how can he and Big Red even start the search when everyone in town wants the secrets of the past buried forever...and the brothers buried with them? It's enough to confound even that most unconfoundable of men, their mutual inspiration: Sherlock Holmes.
