A Type of Infamy: The Redacted Sherlock Holmes

It is March 1938. A print worker petitions Holmes about the disappearance of a fellow worker at the Daily Mail.

Holmes investigates, and after interviews with the newspaper’s proprietor, Viscount Rothermere, and with Joachim von Ribbentrop, the German ambassador, it becomes clear the missing print worker has died fulfilling a commission for the German ambassador, although it is not clear what the commission is.

Diplomatic immunity and the pusillanimity of the British government prevent any further action being taken in 1938, and the mystery is only finally solved in the ruins of Vienna in the bitter winter of 1945-46.

Out on Audio: Watson – My Life: An Autobiography of Doctor Watson, Comrade and Friend of Sherlock Holmes

In 1936, an elderly Doctor Watson sits at his desk with a dictation machine and, over a two week period, recounts the significant moments in his life. The expected publication of his autobiography never materialized. But in 2017 the wax cylinders containing Watson’s words appeared and have at last been made available to the general public. This, then is the life of Doctor John H Watson.

Out on Audio – Sherlock Holmes and the Sword of Osman

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.

Out this week on audio – Eliminate the Impossible

Out this week on audio –  Eliminate the Impossible: An Examination of the World of Sherlock Holmes on Page and Screen

Now 94 books on Sherlock Holmes Audio Books Pinterest Board

The book begins with a brief examination of the effect that the stories have had on modern crime literature. It goes on to examine the origins of the character of Holmes himself from his appearance to his drug use and supposed dislike of women. We then move onto a mini-biography of some of the significant characters in the series. Each of the original stories by Conan Doyle is examined in an effort to explain some of the more esoteric aspects and an examination is made of the attempts to form a proper chronology for the stories – as Doyle did not write the stories in strict chronological order. The second half of the book focuses on Holmes’s career on the screen. There is a brief examination of some of the more notable actors to have portrayed Holmes and the films in which they appeared. Finally we look at the possible requirements for a definitive screen portrayal of the canon.

Eliminate the Impossible is also available from all good bookstores, in many formats worldwide including The Strand Magazine,  Amazon USA,  Barnes and Noble,  Amazon UKWaterstones UK, Book Depository (free worldwide delivery), Amazon Kindle,  Kobo,  Nook  and iBooks for the iPad/iPhone.
