'At the moment I know nothing about you beyond the obvious facts that your father is a soldier, your mother died some years ago and you have recently ceased to play the violin.'
A collection of six new Sherlock Holmes adventures: intriguing mysteries which perfectly capture the authentic flavour of the Conan-Doyle originals.
The visitors to Holmes and Watson's comfortable old rooms at 221B Baker Street include Miss Violet Dungate ('The soldier's daughter'), Mr Wilfred Bellamy, ('The Woodbridge solicitor'), Mr Royston Hatto, dealer in foreign coins ('The Endell Street Mystery'), Mr Oliver Gladwell of the Waterford Hotel ('The Dorset Witch'), Mr Gerald Tovey of the National Vigilance Association ('The Ottoman Saloon') and Mr Rupert Cheffington, Bluemantle Pursuivant of Arms ('The Norfolk Baronet').
And when Holmes is in retirement, in his seventies, we finally learn the truth about the Phantom Gun Horse, the Giant Rat of Sumatra and the Singular Affair of the Aluminium Crutch.
