Out Today -Sherlock Holmes and Hitler’s Messenger of Death

Spring 1937. While German Chancellor Adolf Hitler ceaselessly talks of peace, his actions seem deliberately calculated to make the Western allies lose patience. The schizophrenic geopolitical atmosphere even can be felt as far away as Fulworth, England, the home of the retired Sherlock Holmes, where the Steiners, a German migrant couple, have recently found a refuge and have assumed care of the detective’s household after the passing of Mrs Hudson. Spying and detective work are far from the thoughts of beekeeping enthusiast Holmes,but the suicide of his protégé – a local youth whose natural talent the detective developed and encouraged for ten years – is a heavy blow. The death without apparent motive has now pulled Holmes back into the world, which has changed dramatically. Steam power has given way to electricity, carriages have been replaced by automobiles, and the skies are dotted with giant airships. The only thing that has remained constant is evil, in the shape of an enemy with whom Holmes first tangled more than forty years ago…

Sherlock Holmes and Hitler’s Messenger of Death is available from all good bookstores including  The Strand Magazine, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.

Out today – Sherlock Holmes and A Hole In The Devil’s Tail

Holmes and Watson have been handed the challenge of solving the London Tarot Killings. It is a shadowy episode equaling any dark conspiracy ever committed in the ancient city. Some fiend is brutally murdering random people in Lower Havering and pinning cards from the Italian deck on their faces. The string of murders seems to have some connection to the strange, unsolved slaying of the renowned solicitor Richard Corkright in his cozy, secure Merton office. At the request of the police, Holmes and his faithful chronicler begin an investigation. But unraveling the treacherous scheme of the sinister Tarot Master proves to be no simple task. As the two dauntless men pursue the case, they begin to piece together a vast plot stretching from London’s lofty perches of wealth and privilege all the way down to its seedy backstreets and byways. In the course of resolving this intricate mystery, the Great Detective and his devoted assistant will deal with ritual murder and remorse-driven suicide, confront shady characters both clever and dangerous, uncover dark secrets of affluent society, and face at every turn the violent wrath of a ruthless, diabolical genius.

Sherlock Holmes and A Hole In The Devil’s Tail is available from all good bookstores including The Strand Magazine, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository. In ebook format it is in Kindle, Kobo, Nook and Apple iBooks (iPad/iPhone). Also available on Audible.

Released today – The Riddle of Foxwood Grange – A New Sherlock Holmes Mystery

An invitation to take lunch at the Great Western Hotel at Paddington station leads Sherlock Holmes into a baffling mystery. Who is it that is watching every move made by popular journalist, Farringdon Blake, and why? When the trail goes cold in London, Holmes and his friend, Dr Watson, must travel down to Foxwood Grange, Blake’s home in rural Oxfordshire, to seek a solution to the mystery there. But Foxwood Grange, a 300-year-old Elizabethan mansion, is a house with a chequered past and holds mysteries of its own.

In this superb evocation of both the spirit and the style of Conan Doyle’s earlier Sherlock Holmes stories, Denis O. Smith, acclaimed author of numerous Sherlock Holmes short story collections, here presents the great detective on a larger stage, in a gripping mystery which builds remorselessly to a thrilling and dramatic climax.

The Riddle of Foxwood Grange is available from all good bookstores including  Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.

Out today – Sherlock Holmes in Montague Street: Sherlock Holmes’s Early Investigations Originally Presented as Martin Hewitt Adventures – Hardback edition

In 1893, Dr. Watson and Conan Doyle published what they believed was the last Sherlock Holmes story, “The Final Problem”. The world was stunned, and The Strand Magazine rushed to fill the vacuum. Readers were soon introduced to a new detective, Martin Hewitt, as presented by Arthur Morrison. Although initially different than Holmes, Hewitt also showed a number of interesting similarities as well. For many years, Martin Hewitt has been mostly forgotten, except in some Sherlockian circles, where it has long been theorized that he was a young Mycroft Holmes. However, recent evidence has come to light that Hewitt’s adventures were – in fact – cases undertaken by a young Sherlock Holmes when he lived in Montague Street, several years before he would take up his legendary rooms in Baker Street with Watson. These volumes are The Complete Martin Hewitt Stories, taking Arthur Morrison’s original publications and presenting them as Sherlock Holmes adventures. If you’re a fan of Holmes, enjoy! And by all means, seek out the original Hewitt stories and enjoy them as well. The Game is afoot!

Sherlock Holmes in Montague Street hardback edition is available from all good bookstores including  Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.

Sherlock Holmes in Montague Street paperback editions are available from all good bookstores including  Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository. In ebook format it is in Kindle, Kobo, Nook and Apple iBooks(iPad/iPhone).
