1968, a time of change: the Black Panthers, the Stonewall riots, student protests, women’s liberation. Newly famous, Sherlock Holmes – the detective over the bakery on Avenue B – is much in demand.
Amid the steady stream of cases, Holmes becomes caught up in a string of seemingly innocuous stories. His landlady, the hardworking baker Mrs. Hendrix, is worried that her nephew has fallen in with a bad crowd. Madame Ondine, a notorious drag queen from Andy Warhol’s Factory, has apparently quit drugs and cleaned up his act. Dr. Bill, a mathematician and physicist, thinks his academic rivals are somehow stealing his notes.
The New Left is a turbulent, passionate, occasionally dangerous place at the best of times, but Holmes is on the trail of something darker. Something deadly...
The Power of Media is the third of three new novellas following on from the stories in Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets. Includes the story “Half There/All There.”

Glen has been a bookseller, line cook, lighting and set designer, house painter, IT director, carbon finance consultant, soldier, dishwasher, and innovation programme designer.

He moved country five times in two years once, and happy to stick around for a while.
