Osborn's New Displaced Detective Series "Takes Sherlock Holmes To New Level"

The Case of the Displaced Detective: The Arrival is the first in what will be an exciting and popular science fiction and mystery series starring none other than Sherlock Holmes himself.
Dec. 21, 2011 - PRLog -- "The Displaced Detective" is Stephanie Osborn's newest series release, beginning with a science fiction mystery in which the brilliant hyperspatial physicist, Dr. Skye Chadwick, discovers that there are alternate realities, and said alternates are often populated by those we consider only literary characters. Her pet research, Project: Tesseract, hidden deep under Schriever Air Force Base, is her means of looking in on these continua. In one particular reality, continuum 114, a certain Victorian detective (who, in fact, exists in several continua) was to have died along with his arch-nemesis at the Reichenbach Falls. Knee-jerking, Skye intervenes, rescuing her hero, who inadvertently flies through the tesseract wormhole connecting his universe with ours, while his enemy plunges to his death. Unable to send Holmes back without causing devastating continuum collapse due to non-uniqueness, he is forced to stay in our world and learn to adapt to the 21st century.

Meanwhile, the Schriever AFB Department of Security discovers a spy ring working to dig out the details of - and possibly sabotage - Project: Tesseract.

Can Chadwick help Holmes come up to speed in modern investigative techniques in time to stop the spies? Will Holmes be able to thrive in our modern world? Is Chadwick now Holmes' new "Watson" - or more?

And what happens next?

The first two books in this series, The Case of the Displaced Detective: The Arrival, and The Case of the Displaced Detective: At Speed, are available at Amazon and Barnes-Noble in Kindle, Nook, and trade paperback formats.  And people are already talking.

Tommy Hancock, pulp literature expert and author of "Ideas Like Bullets," says, "Author Stephanie Osborn can sure write Sherlock Holmes. And How! THE CASE OF THE DISPLACED DETECTIVE...is a fantastic spin on the Holmes mythos and does the character and his creator great honor."

Best-selling True Crime author Yvonne Mason decided, "Stephanie takes Sherlock Holmes to an entire new level. Her story setting places the reader smack dab in the middle of the story. She takes science and Holmes and blends them into a book that keeps the reader wondering how he is going to get out of this scrap." Then she goes on to add, "As a reader and fan of Holmes this series is on my list as soon as they are available. I will be adding them to my ever growing Holmes Library."

And Anne K. Edwards, author of Shadows Over Paradise and The Last To Fall, notes, "The flavor of this tale is a mix of the old and the new and, like Sherlock, will make the reader long to return to the old times as well as love to explore the new...Enjoy. I sure did."
