Famed athlete, cultural ambassador, actor, essayist (Time, The Washington Post) and author Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has written his first adult novel, Mycroft Holmes, exploring the potential in the famous sleuth of Baker Street’s older sibling. Publishers Weekly hailed the novel, co-authored with Anna Waterhouse who will also appear at the MGSD event, as a “triumphant adult fiction debut.” In 1870 the title character is serving as a secretary at the War Office when word reaches London of a series of unusual deaths in Trinidad. Someone, or some thing, has been killing children and draining their blood. Mycroft pursues his fiancée, Georgiana Sutton, to Trinidad and finds himself enmeshed in the mystery.

Starred Publishers Weekly review:
Basketball legend Abdul-Jabbar (On the Shoulders of Giants) makes his triumphant adult fiction debut with an action yarn that fills in the backstory of Sherlock Holmes’s older and smarter brother, Mycroft. In 1870, the 23-year-old Mycroft, who has a reputation as a daredevil, is serving as a secretary at the War Office when word reaches London of a series of unusual deaths in Trinidad. Someone, or some thing, has been killing children and draining their blood. The locals believe the culprits are supernatural beings known as lougarou, who drain children of their blood, and douen, who leave highly unusual footprints near their victims. The tragic news stuns Mycroft’s fiancée, Georgiana Sutton, who immediately sails home to Trinidad. Disobeying her request to stay behind, Mycroft follows Georgiana to Trinidad, where he must exercise his intellect and his innate diplomatic skills to solve the crimes and remain alive. Sherlockians who relish the screen adventures of Cumberbatch and Downey will be particularly entertained.
