David Francis Curran, a former writer on the television series Wiseguy and 2018 MPL fiction award winner, was one of a handful of authors who published Sherlockian pastiches when such work had to be licensed by the Doyle estate. The first story in this collection, "The Adventure of Miss Stephanie Ray", was the lead story in the 1970's licensed publication The Non-Canonical Sherlock Holmes

Five new stories are also included here: "The Adventure of the Monstrous Medium", "The Adventure of the Shanghaied Sailor", "The Adventure of the Chess Messages", "The Adventure of the Numerologist’s Cypher", and "The Adventure of Colonel Mustard’s Secret". They are all told as close to the original as possible. This is a must-have collection for Sherlock fans.

Enjoyable short stories

These remind me of the feel of the original stories. The author did a great job of keeping these authentic in their feel and the stories were enjoyable. They are not amazing, but very entertaining and worth a listen. Fred Wolinsky does an awesome job with the narrating! I had no problems distinguishing who was talking at any given time. Overall, entertaining and worth listening to.
