Out on Audio – The Merchant of Menace: A Sherlock Holmes Adventure

The Merchant of Menace: A Sherlock Holmes Adventure

Reluctantly, Sherlock Holmes agrees to assist Inspector Lestrade who is being hounded by an obnoxious nobleman whose jewel-encrusted dagger has gone missing. However, what Holmes initially believes to be a simple theft turns out instead to be his first encounter with a master criminal, who is as ruthless as he is brilliant, and whom Watson dubs “The Merchant of Menace.”

Soon Holmes finds himself matching wits with a man who will steal anything – if the price is right. Moreover, this thief will go to any lengths, including blackmail and murder, to achieve his desired goal.

As Holmes comes to understand his adversary, he also begins to realize he can only react to the Merchant because he has no idea where this criminal mastermind will strike next. All Holmes knows for certain is the Merchant seems to specialize in priceless, one-of-a-kind articles. Will that be enough information for the Great Detective to outwit his foe?

From the British Museum to the Louvre to Blenheim Palace, Holmes finds himself in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. Set against the backdrop of early Edwardian England, the Great Detective and his Boswell encounter an array of luminaries from the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough to a young Winston Churchill.

For fans of Conan Doyle’s immortal detective, the game is always afoot. However, this time around Holmes must try to bring to justice a villain who might well be the next Napoleon of Crime.

Oh, what a joy it is to meet Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson again! The Merchant of Menace is an exciting adventure of priceless valuables, great detective work and just the kind of devilish adversary we love to read about.” – Mattias Boström, award-winning author of From Holmes to Sherlock: The Story of the Men and Women Who Created an Icon

The first new Shakespeare play in centuries

On Audio – A Scandal in Nova Alba: Stage-Play Version

Steve White stars in the first new Shakespeare play for four hundred years.

The King of Nova Alba, in this new stage-play version of the story, approaches Sherlock Holmes to discover who killed the king’s predecessor.

Shakespeare wrote comedies, tragedies, and histories, but he never got around to writing a whodunit, and this mixture of the Bard and Baker Street fills the gap in his oeuvre. The King of Nova Alba approaches Sherlock Holmes. The current king’s predecessor on the Nova Alban throne, King Duncan, came to a violent end, and Holmes’ petitioner is the prime suspect. He wants Sherlock Holmes to find the true killer. There is many a twist in a familiar tale, before Holmes reveals the utterly unexpected truth. Two years after Delos’ publication of the story version of “A Scandal in Nova Alba”, here it is at last as a stage-play.

The Celtic Phoenix: A Sherlock Holmes Adventure

An enigmatic jewelry case, holding human remains, arrives at the cottage of Sherlock Holmes, enticing him from his retirement refuge in the Sussex Downs. Holmes sets out on the trail of the murderer taunting him, joining forces with one of his former Baker Street irregulars, Tessa Wiggins. The two find themselves battling forces arising from a time before England was a country – when the Celts were fighting for survival.

Though set in 1919, The Celtic Phoenix is steeped in the enigmatic culture of the ancient Celts who reigned over much of Europe 3,000 years ago. It was a time when the bond with Nature was strong…when people walked in the olde ways…and when women were the equals to men as warriors, priests, and poets. The Celtic Phoenix is the journey of three women who rise from the ashes of their past like fearsome phoenixes and shake the rational foundations upon Sherlock Holmes built his life and career.

The Last Confession of Sherlock Holmes

Kieran Lyne is the youngest author ever to receive the Conan Doyle Estate seal for his Jack The Ripper thriller – The Last Confession of Sherlock Holmes  Now out on Audio.

The story – In the dawn of 1891 Sherlock Holmes is locked in a deadly game of wits with the sinister Professor James Moriarty; but events will soon transpire which will question the very outcome of Reichenbach. With Holmes presumed dead, the streets of London are panic-stricken, as a resurrected terror takes hold of the city; whilst in the upper-echelons of Government, a singular, undetectable force can once again be felt manipulating the criminal underworld. The ever reliable Dr. Watson has deceived us all, as he finally reveals the far more shocking events which led to both the return of Sherlock Holmes and his involvement in the suppression of London’s most notorious criminal.

The story grabs one’s attention from the first chapter and keeps it firmly in its grasp to the final word. The pace is smooth, easy flowing, yet packed with conundrums that always bring up further complications… I found this book delightful, and one of the best non-canonical aligned pastiches out there at the moment.” – The Raven

Practical Handbook of Bee Culture by Sherlock Holmes

In the summer of 2016, retired broadcaster Paul Ashton made an astounding discovery at a car boot sale in Sussex. He found a copy of Sherlock Holmes’s Practical Handbook of Bee Culture, and bought it for £2. No other copy of this legendary volume – the only book Holmes wrote – has ever come to light.

The Handbook is the journal kept by Holmes from 1904 to 1912. 1904 was the year he retired from active investigation and moved to a farmhouse in East Dean. In 1912 he came out of retirement and left East Dean in order to outwit the German spy network in Britain on the eve of World War I.

Now 122 books on the Sherlock Holmes Audio Books Pinterest Board.

Practical Handbook of Bee Culture is available from all good bookstores including  The Strand Magazine, Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.
