Synopsis

From the Fertile Crescent to the Far East, the great adventures of Holmes during the three-year gap between his “death” and dramatic return What exactly happened during Sherlock Holmes’s “great hiatus” after his supposed death and triumphant return three years later? Riccardi imagines his travels in Europe and Asia during those years in nine original short stories set in places as far flung as Sumatra and Tibet. Given the uncertain grip of the British Empire over its colonies, the murders and other mayhem Holmes confronts often have potentially grave political repercussions. Filled with local color and Holmes’s signature wit and logic, Sherlockians the world over will relish this missing chapter in the life of the world’s greatest detective.
