First discovered and then painstakingly edited and annotated by Nicholas Meyer, The Seven-Per-Cent Solution relates the astounding and previously unknown collaboration of Sigmund Freud with Sherlock Holmes, as recorded by Holmes’ friend and chronicler, Dr. John H. Watson.

In addition to its breathtaking account of their collaboration on a case of diabolic conspiracy in which the lives of millions hang in the balance, it reveals such matters as the real identity of the heinous professor Moriarty, the dark secret shared by Sherlock and his brother Mycroft, and the detective’s true whereabouts during the Great Hiatus, when the world believed him to be dead.

    " Read it when it first came out, thought it inventive and entertaining - one of the better re-imaginings of the Doyle characters. "

    " There is a growing oeuvre of Holmesiana out there, much of it pretty good. "The 7 Per Cent Solution", a short novel written in the '70s by Nicholas Meyer, cleverly pits Holmes and Watson against Holmes' true arch-enemy, with the aid of Sigmund Freud. For those die-hard Holmes fans, this novel takes place in the time period between Conan Doyle's "The Final Problem" and "The Adventure of the Empty House", in which Homes supposedly battled Professor Moriarty to the death but "miraculously" survived. (Conan Doyle, tired of writing the series, encountered much rage from jilted fans who hated to see Holmes perish in "The Final Problem", so, by popular demand, he brought him back to life...) Meyer cleverly attributes the novel to Dr. John Watson and explains its remarkable "discovery" in the preface. A fun, quick read that is a good companion piece to the afore-mentioned Conan Doyle stories. "

    " A wonderful addition to the Sherlock Holmes mysteries. It's a bit slow to start, but the last fifty pages are fantastic! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Dave Jones | 2/15/2014

    " Outstanding Holmesian action-adventure that rivals(surpasses?) the best of Arthur Conan Doyle. This combines all of the Sherlock Holmes characters that we have come to love and introduces Sigmund Freud into this mix. The fate of the world literally hangs in the balance! "
