Drugged, manacled, condemned to a dank cell in the depths of London’s infamous Newgate prison, the world’s greatest literary detective awaits execution by a vengeful crew of formidable enemies. Escape is impossible; death, a certainty. But not for Sherlock Holmes, who, in a stunning display of intellect and derring-do, will elude his hangman’s noose and live to fiddle, spy, and ratiocinate another day. 

Against tremendous odds Holmes will continue to defy his enemies in four more encounters, from cracking German intelligence codes, to going against Scotland Yard and the Crown in proving the innocence of a man condemned to death for the slaying of a pregnant serving girl, to an arsenic-wielding magician, and of course, to a battle of wits with the malevolent Moriarty. Everywhere in these five finely wrought tales, riddles and mystery hover in the air. But they are not beyond the grasp of the incomparable Sherlock Holmes.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Annie | 11/29/2013

    " awash in irrelevant detail as no doyle was, homes as often out of character as in. unfortunate, as the same author writing his own series, away from comparison, might be rather enjoyable... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Ronn | 11/5/2013

    " Some very interesting story concepts, but the execution could have been better. An enjoyable enough read, but experienced Sherlockians will probably think, "meh!' It would probably be a better take-out from a library than a purchase for most other than completists. "

    " Very satisfying for fans of Sherlock Holmes. Thomas proves himself to be a lover of the man and the man who created him. "
