Crossover Cover: Son of Holmes
This novel features Auguste Lupa, the son of Sherlock Holmes and Irene Adler. Lupa is clearly meant to be Nero Wolfe, whom John D. Clark and William S. Baring-Gould previously speculated was Holmes and Irene's son. Lescroart also reveals that Mycroft Holmes was Sir Miles Messervy's predecessor as M, the head of the British Secret Service, a theory also used by Alan Moore in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
