Mark Twain is at his irreverent best with this hilarious parody of the 19th-century mystery. The tale begins with the murder of Flint Buckner and a heinous crime against a young woman. A man with special gifts - no less a personage than Sherlock Holmes! - enters the scene to solve the mystery and avenge the lady. He matches wits with an improbable villain, Archy Stillman, while Ham Sandwich and Wells Fargo look on, and almost gets himself lynched in the process. Download and start listening now!

    " This is Twain's spoof of Sherlock Holmes, set in the mining country of the West. Funny, but not his best work. "

    " Have you ever had a dream that encompasses snatches of a nightmare and then morphs into a pseudo-reality that leaves you confused, even after waking? That's what reading this book is like. "

    " A strange story of a famous British detective getting his comeuppance in the wild west by a boy with super-smell. "
