These stories are dull; neither the characters seeking Holmes’ help, nor the criminals he catches sparkle, there’s no page-turning intensity. Even the best stories here read very much like the dullest of modern headlines...

Synopsis

Murder, deception and the long shadow of Moriarty. All in a day's work for the great Sherlock Holmes. The unpublished manuscripts of Dr John Watson, concealed for years in the depths of a Charing Cross bank vault, are now brought to light. Sherlock Holmes and his faithful friend and biographer must solve cases as complex as any they have known before. Some may even bring them face to face with old enemies from the past, figures left behind in the mists of the Reichenbach Falls . . . A widow with three hands slips out of a church door . . . A farmer lies dead in a barn, his son accused of his murder . . . A skeleton with a silver locket is unearthed in a back garden. What do they have in common? The famous resident of 221B Baker Street. A brand new cache of original cases displays the master of the art of deduction at his intriguing best, proving that the game is still very much afoot.
