A Study in Black

Somoza is back and at his best with the first book in a trilogy inspired by the adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

England, 1900s. Nurse Anne McCarey, weary of life in London and fleeing a stormy relationship, accepts a job caring for a patient at an exclusive clinic for the mentally ill in Southsea, in the coastal city of Portsmouth. For someone with her experience, the work couldn’t be easier.

But what she finds there isn’t what she expected. The patient, identified simply as “Mr X”, can discover the deepest secrets of the people around him without leaving his room, which is always dark.

Added to this duo is the young Dr Arthur Conan Doyle, who comes to the clinic to attend to Mr X. He’s practicing medicine in Southsea and developing a character for his next novel: the most famous fictional detective of all time. Only Anne and Dr Doyle will be prepared to decipher the enigmatic Mr X’s riddles. These appear to be the key to solving the murders just beginning to rock the city of Portsmouth, with its outrageous plays, underworld of clandestine theatres, and illicit performances.

“Simply fascinating, Doyle himself would be proud” Crónicas Literarias

“José Carlos Somoza inquires in the deepest holmesian myth to dive into the origins of the charachter created by sir Arthur Conan Doyle through a superb reinterpretation of the famous detective” ABC

About the Author
Jose Carlos Somoza

José Carlos Somoza is a prominent Spanish author born in Havana, Cuba. In 1960 his family moved to Spain after being exiled for political reasons. He holds a Bachelor's Degree in psychiatry, but he gave up medicine in order to be a full-time writer. Since 1994 he has dedicated his professional life entirely to writing. He is the author of six novels. In 2000 he was shortlisted for the Nadal Prize, one of the most important literary prizes in Spain. Somoza’s works are usually mixture of classic thriller and science fiction, wrapped in enigma. He manages to keep all the mysteries beguiling as they begin to wrap themselves around each other. The stories invariably come to a surprising and satisfying conclusion, leaving no doubt as to the mastery of Somoza's storytelling. Among his best known novels are “The Athenian Murders”, “The Bait”, “The Art of Murder” and “The Key of Doom”, all published in Bulgaria.
