Summary

The Second Collection of Sherlock Holmes stories from The Davies Brothers, winners of the BAFTA Rocliffe New Writers Showcase (supported by the London Book Fair)... The Centurion Papers is a thrilling new series of Sherlock Holmes mysteries. Too explosive for publication, kept hidden for a hundred years...until now. 

  1. "The Missing Parrot" - When Lady McMillan’s beloved pet parrot, Rodney, goes missing along with the scullery maid, she enlists the help of Holmes and Watson to track down the kidnapper and bring Rodney home. The mystery, however, is far murkier than it first appears, and the stakes are ever so much greater than the safe return of a stolen bird.... 
  2. "The Montmartre Murders" - Presumed dead, Sherlock Holmes is on the run from Moriarty’s acolytes... Lying low in Paris, an incognito Holmes finds himself in a city at the cusp of a cultural revolution. When a series of gruesome crucifixions sweeps the arts district of Montmartre, only one man can solve a mystery that will shake the famous City of Lights to its foundations. Even undercover, you can’t keep a great detective down....
     
  3. "The Curse of the Baskervilles" - At last, the sequel to The Hound of the Baskervilles!... Watson is presented with a note from a mysterious stranger. Upon it is written one word: Baskerville... Almost a decade after Holmes and Watson faced down the legendary beast on the moors, the duo is pulled into a chilling new mystery when tragedy plagues that cursed family once again. Ghostly voices from the dead, victims savaged on the hills, and a giant hound that is very real indeed.... Can Sherlock Holmes defeat his most villainous foe yet? 

Three stunning new episodes in the Sherlock Holmes canon from Dr Watson’s recently found Centurion Papers - uncovered by The Davies Brothers, authors of Hudson James and the Baker Street Legacy.

Another good collection of Holmes pastiches

This second collection of pastiches by the Davies Brothers is stronger than the first. Whereas the first collection suffered from a very weak final story, and multiple technical issues, each entry in this edition is strong with only a scattering of technical problems. Overall, this is a good collection that most Sherlock Holmes fans should enjoy, especially the homage to The Hound of the Baskervilles which rounds this book out so well.
