sherlockholmesninedragonsigil300Sherlock Holmes and the Nine-Dragon Sigil by Tim Symonds
If you thought the only time you’d hear the word ‘sigil’ was when watching Game of Thrones, think again. The latest Sherlock novel from Tim Symonds is set in Peking in 1906, where a plot seems to be hatching against the progressive-minded Ch’ing Emperor, or his fearsome aunt, the Empress Dowager Cixi. No-one’s sure which. Sherlock Holmes is called in to work it out and he, in turn, is caught between British interests in China, and those of the Chinese themselves. He and Watson will find themselves in the disorientating surroundings of the Forbidden City as they investigate. Released 21 November
