Out on Audio – Sherlock Holmes and the Sword of Osman

It’s 1906. Far from England, the Ottoman Empire ruled by the despotic Sultan Abd-ul-Hamid 11 is on the verge of imploding. Rival Great Powers, especially Kaiser Wilhelm’s Germany, sit watching like crows on a fence, ready to rush in to carve up the vast territories, menacing England’s vital overland routes to her Indian possessions. At his medical practice in London’s Marylebone, Watson receives a mystifying telegram. It’s from Holmes. “Dear Watson, if you can throw physic to the dogs for an hour or two I would appreciate meeting at the stone cross at Charing Cross railway station tomorrow noon. I have an assignation with a birdlover at the Stork & Ostrich House in the Regents Park which has excited my curiosity. Yrs. S.H.”

Watson finds the invitation puzzling. Why should such a mundane meeting at a Bird House excite the curiosity of Europe’s most famous investigating detective or anyone else? For old times’ sake, Watson joins his old comrade-in-arms. Within days, Holmes and Watson find themselves aboard HMS Dreadnought en route to Stamboul, a city of fabled opulence, high espionage, and low intrigue. Their mission: at all costs, stop a plot which could bring about the immediate collapse of the Ottoman Empire.

Sherlock Holmes – L’enigma Reichenbach (Il Giallo Mondadori Sherlock)

Sherlock Holmes – L’enigma Reichenbach (Il Giallo Mondadori Sherlock)

Impareggiabile Holmes. Soltanto lui, ricevendo un criptico telegramma su un uomo trovato in camicia da notte nella brughiera, sarebbe capace di elaborare sull’accaduto non una ma sette teorie. Ed è proprio ciò che fa, mentre in compagnia dell’amico Watson raggiunge in treno Exeter, nel Devonshire. Difficile tuttavia, da elementi tanto esigui, desumere cosa sia successo a questo misterioso individuo, che urla come un pazzo e sembra terrorizzato dai serpenti. Quando però, seguendo a ritroso le sue tracce, il segugio londinese scopre due cadaveri in una fattoria isolata, con scuderie attrezzate a camera delle torture, una vicenda nata sotto una luce grottesca si trasforma in un caso dei più oscuri. Sarà dunque benvenuta la preziosa collaborazione di lady Beatrice nel dipanare i fili di una trama su cui incombe minacciosa l’ombra di Moriarty, scomparso anni prima nelle acque di una cascata in Svizzera dopo una violenta colluttazione con Holmes. La chiave è in un nome: Reichenbach, teatro di quell’epico scontro. Dove tutto pareva finito e invece, forse, era appena cominciato.

Now on Kickstarter – A Sherlock Holmes Alphabet

Now on Kickstarter – A Sherlock Holmes Alphabet

The Sherlock Holmes Alphabet brings iconic scenes from the Sherlock Holmes canon to life using Lego figures in high resolution images.

Five years ago, James Macaluso began building scenes from Sherlock Holmes stories in LEGO® figures. This became a series of books covering twelve of the adventures of Sherlock Holmes titled “The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Re-Imagined”. Each book featured many high resolution features as well as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original text for the stories.

They went down a storm with both fans and critics.


James was asked to create more Sherlock Holmes scenes in LEGO® and the idea for the Sherlock Holmes Alphabet was born.

“A is for Agra, the immense treasure found. B is for Baskerville, accursed by the hound.”

Thus begins A SHERLOCK HOLMES ALPHABET, in which selected characters and objects featuring in the Sherlock Holmes stories written by Arthur Conan Doyle are presented in rhyming verse, from A to Z, and accompanied by amusing photographic illustrations of custom designed LEGO® models and mini-figures.

This uniquely illustrated edition is sure to delight LEGO® enthusiasts, as well as fans of the Great Detective, children and adults alike.

In addition to pre-publication copies of A Sherlock Holmes Alphabet, we are also offering copies of the Sherlock Holmes Re-Imagined books and also copies of the complete collection.

Out on Audio –  The Hounding of Peers Baskerville: The Redacted Sherlock Holmes

It is 1909, and 20 years have passed since the great Devon adventure.

Holmes is consulted by Sir Henry Baskerville’s son after a shepherd in the baronet’s clothes is found dead at the foot of a cliff.

Watson is dispatched to Dartmoor to investigate and finds that the publication of his novel – controversial at the time because of the inadequacies it exposed in Holmes’s handling of the original case – has had some wholly unexpected consequences for the members of the dramatis personae of the original story.

It takes the return of Holmes to Dartmoor to separate truth from legend and to bring some legend to the truth.

The Redacted Sherlock Holmes Series is available from Amazon USA, Barnes and Noble USA, Amazon UK , Book Depository (free worldwide shipping) and all the books and individual stories are available in Kindle and Audio book format.
