Turn your speakers on

Dear Charlotte,

  I never told you much about your father.  Whenever you asked me about his side of the family, I said I didn't know.  But that wasn't the truth.

  Forgive me.  I have kept a secret from you for so long, but now you know  who you truly are.  It is true: your father's uncle was Sherlock Holmes.

  The whole Holmes family are master detectives.  They have a gift.  Your father wanted to follow in his uncle's footsteps, solving crimes and uncovering the truth.  Just like his Uncle Sherlock, there was no case he couldn't crack - every bad guy knew it.  And every bad guy wanted to stop him.  I begged him to stop before he upset someone dangerous, but he wouldn't listen.  He told me "No bad guy will ever kill Graham Holmes" - he was wrong.

  I should have told you earlier, but I just couldn't bear the thought of the same thing happening to you.  I knew you were bound to figure it out sooner or later - you are a Holmes after all.

  If you're reading this, you're every bit the detective your father was, and Sherlock Holmes before him.  There won't be a case you can't crack.  Just be careful it doesn't crack you.

  I love you Charlotte.

  Stay safe.

 

Mum
