Five sensational Sherlock Holmes stories by Orlando Pearson followed by three meditations hinting at the most radical theory yet about the Great Baker Street Detective.
The stories include: "A Type of Infamy" - Holmes investigates a mysterious disappearance in 1938; "The Fourth Student" - shocking events in the worlds of athletics and medicine; "A Question of Time" - Holmes, Churchill, and Realpolitik at Britain's finest hour; "The Sleeper's Cache" - the sequel to "The Bruce-Partington Plans" with Machiavellian manoeuvring by Mycroft; "The Other Woman" - Holmes's second female nemesis and a musical discovery; and "Three Holmesian Meditations" - an investigation into the true nature of the enigma that is Sherlock Holmes.
Mr Pearson's previous works have been hailed by the Church Times as "Clever, thought-provoking, and terrific fun". This description applies just as aptly to this latest collection. A must for traditionalists, lovers of crime fiction, and anyone who likes a thrilling book.
