Author Angela Misri joins us in this episode of CrimeFiction.FM to discuss her new book, the third in her wonderful Portia Adams mystery series, NO MATTER HOW IMPROBABLE.
Angela Misri Interview Notes
Angela shares the backstory for Portia Adams, the heroine of this series of mysteries, who moves to London after inheriting a townhouse at 221B Baker Street.
We discuss the reasons why Angela chose 1930s London as the setting for the series. Angela is fascinated by the period between the great wars.
We discuss the ways in which readers find the books, some are hard-core fans of Sherlock Holmes, and others, younger readers, are being introduced to Holmes through the series.
We discuss Angela’s decision to use “casebooks” in the novels, as opposed to novel length stories. She chose the casebook idea because of the way the original Holmes stories were written and published.
We discuss Angela’s YouTube Channel, One Fictitious Moment youtube channel.
From the Publisher:
Be careful what you wish for
A certain amount of celebrity is inevitable when you’re Sherlock Holmes’s granddaughter, especially when you’re also a consulting detective. But for Portia Adams, it’s getting to be a little much. She decides to escape the rabid London press by chasing a case all the way to Italy.
When she gets back, it seems that the media frenzy has finally run its course — but now she’s got bigger things to worry about. Sherlock Holmes is missing, his apartment burned to the ground. Her boyfriend, Gavin Whitaker, is acting strangely and spending too much time with unsavory people. And as if that weren’t enough, her best friend Brian isn’t speaking to her.
Can Portia right all that has happened in her brief absence or will she lose someone she loves to the gray London streets?
