Murder, deception and the long shadow of Moriarty. All in a day’s work for the great Sherlock Holmes.
A mysterious veiled lady carries a counterfeit painting into an art dealer’s office. A widow with three hands slips out of a church door. A farmer lies dead in a barn, his son accused of his murder. A skeleton with a silver locket is unearthed in a back garden. What do they have in common? The famous resident of 221b Baker Street.
From the gas-lit clamour of London’s streets, to the isolated Welsh countryside, the great detective Sherlock Holmes, accompanied as always by his faithful friend and biographer Dr Watson, must solve cases as complex as any he has known before, some of which bring him face to face with old enemies from the past, figures left behind in the mists of the Reichenbach Falls
A brand new cache of original cases from the brilliant imagination of June Thomson displays the master of the art of deduction at his intriguing best and proves that the game is still very much afoot.
