Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson traverse the British Isles and the Italian peninsula in a rousing new series of adventures. After a thrilling jaunt in the Far East, Holmes and Watson return to England to address an inheritance left by one of Watson’s relatives in Cornwall, half of which he gave to his dear friend, Sherlock Holmes. Financially secure, the two are now free to spend as much time on Baker Street and the Continent as they please, and the duo find themselves as comfortable in Rome on the banks of the Tiber as the Thames. As Holmes rationalizes and ratiocinates his way through case after case, from “The Case of Two Bohemes” to “A Singular Event in Tranquebar,” it’s all in a day’s work, until clues surface that his great nemesis, Professor James Moriarty, might still be alive… Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “A treat for Holmes addicts…Riccardi’s narrative voice sounds like Dr. Watson’s, and the stories slot nicely into the Holmes canon without too much effort. For fans of Conan Doyle’s original stories, a sure-fire hit.”

    Booklist

  • “Riccardi brings variety and clever roman à clef strokes to this volume while maintaining the core charm and panache of the Holmes oeuvre.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Filled with fascinating detail, and provides an answer as to what Holmes was up to during those missing years.”

    Anne Perry on The Oriental Casebook of Sherlock Holmes

  • “There’s no way to dance around it: Ted Riccardi’s work is absolutely brilliant. Once you’re a few pages into these stories, you would swear that these were newly discovered manuscripts, unearthed by Conan Doyle’s estate. Riccardi has it all down—the cadence, the language, everything. It is as if each and every tale in this volume was written at the turn of the century.”

    " Ted Riccardi wrote a marvelous set of Holmes Short Stories years ago attempting to explain the missing years problem in the Holmes Cannon. This new set of stories, set between London and Rome are really quite nicely done but lack the brilliance of the first collection of stories... "

    " Imaginative exploration of Holmes and Watson's Italian adventures, but lacking true nature of the characters. Enjoyable nonetheless. "

    " Enjoyable, quick read in the flavor of the original Sherlock Holmes. "

    " close, but not quite good enough. Mr. Riccardi just does not quite match up to the genius of Sir Arthur. "
