The fourth book in her Displaced Detective series returns to a world where a brilliant physicist has managed to pull her literary hero across parallel dimensions to her own world.  As Sherlock Holmes adjusts to a modern world he is instrumental in solving a mystery challenging his hostess, Dr. Skye Chadwick.   The world Osborn creates demonstrates her detailed knowledge of the Sherlock Holmes character developed by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  At the same time her work leans heavily on Osborn's personal scientific background.  The science in this series is detailed, complex, and merges well with the pursuit of clues as the mystery unfolds.  The four books published in this series may prove to be just the first peek into an amazing world that currently resides in the imagination of Stephanie Osborn.
