Andrew Finkel in conversation with Prof Rebecca Finkel of Queen Margaret University

We are delighted to welcome Andrew Finkel to Cornucopia: Unit Four, to talk about his new book.
Unit Four, in Hawick, Scottish Borders, is home to Cornucopia Magazine’s subscription office as well as being a bookshop and arts venue.

Andrew Finkel has written for Cornucopia Magazine since its inception and is a contributing editor as well as the magazine’s restaurant critic. This is his first novel.

Strange that Abdülhamid II, the last great Ottoman Sultan, would have Sherlock Holmes stories read to him before he went to sleep. Even stranger is that his obsession helped change the course of history.

The Adventure of the Second Wife is an assured and highly original debut that will entertain both Sherlockians and lovers of quirky and mysterious tales.
L.C Tyler

The search for a missing Sherlock Holmes mystery provides a view of obsession, authorship and authoritarianism that is both revealing and funny… a joy to read.
Jenny White, author of The Sultan’s Seal
