The year is 1896. Doctor Watson is invited to the Dorsetshire coast by an old friend. To Watson's surprise he manages to persuade his good friend, Mr Sherlock Holmes to accompany him. This hitherto unknown tale of Watson's involves romancing, dancing, occasional glasses of cider, but the holiday turns into a nightmare as the two old friends encounter an unimaginable evil which threatens their very souls. Can they triumph? - Fully revised and expanded 2nd edition.

About David Ruffle

See more books from this Author
David Ruffle was born in Northamptonshire in the UK at an early age in 1956, yes..a long time ago. The school years passed by in a blur, or was he the blur ? He managed to extricate himself from the education system at 15 years of age and embarked on the adventure of life. Eventually, said adventure took him to Dorset and the beautiful town of Lyme Regis in July of 2004. He felt immediately at home here and surprised himself by starting to write...first, poetry and later ghost stories. All the time he felt that Lyme Regis would be a perfect place for Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson to have an adventure, any kind of adventure ! And so...Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Horror was born. The story continues. David is now with the MX publishing team and further titles have appeared: Sherlock Holmes and The Lyme Regis Legacy, Tales From The Stranger's Room (as contributor and editor), Holmes and Watson: End Peace, a children's illustrated book, Sherlock Holmes and the Missing Snowman with illustrations by Rikey Austin, another Lyme Regis resident and hugely talented to boot. Also in the offing is an outing to Scarborough for Holmes and Watson, a proposed tale of thievery, murder and cricket! Meanwhile, he is still to be found in Lyme Regis, working away and drinking the odd cider, diet permitting.

Unrated Critic Reviews for Sherlock Holmes and the Lyme Regis Horror

The Bookbag

The dozen or so on Sherlock are generally readable but with little to recommend them, a real disappointment given the wonderful way Ruffle captured the friendship between Holmes and Watson so many times in the first book.

The Bookbag

Henrietta’s Problem and Christmas at Baker Street are two of the sweetest pieces I can remember reading on Holmes and Watson, yet fit the established characters perfectly, while I absolutely loved the last line of Christmas with Holmes – superb.
