Book Giveaway For Sherlock Holmes and the Ley Line Murders

The mists of Britain’s insula antiquity have drifted into the modernity of the nineteenth century bringing with them echoes of the savage rituals of its ancient peoples.

Sherlock Holmes finds he must anchor his superior mind on solid ground to uncover the truth and deliver justice for the victims as the reader accompanies the Intrepid Doctor Watson and the Great Sleuth as they conquer their innermost fears when encountering the mysteries of Britain’s ancient Ley Lines, the Ancient Ways.

Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson are summoned to Theobald Grange, the Warwickshire home of Lady Heminworth. Being of a nervous and superstitious disposition, her Ladyship lives in fear. Her husband and elder son were recently murdered, apparently by the ghost of a court jester who was executed on the site centuries before. The apparition has warned that she, too, is to die.

The Great Detective brings his powers to bear, but still the killings continue…

Book Giveaway For The Stone of Destiny: A Sherlock Holmes Adventure

Book Giveaway For The Stone of Destiny: A Sherlock Holmes Adventure

During the elaborate funeral for Queen Victoria, a group of Irish separatists breaks into Westminster Abbey and steals the Coronation Stone, on which every monarch of England has been crowned since the 14th century. After learning of the theft from Mycroft, Sherlock Holmes is tasked with recovering the stone and returning it to England. In pursuit of the many-named stone, which has a rich and colorful history, Holmes and Watson travel to Ireland in disguise as they try to infiltrate the Irish Republican Brotherhood, the group they believe responsible for the theft. The story features a number of historical characters, including a very young Michael Collins, who would go on to play a prominent role in Irish history; John Theodore Tussaud, the grandson of Madame Tussaud; and George Bradley, the dean of Westminster at the time of the theft. There are also references to a number of other Victorian luminaries, including Joseph Lister and Frederick Treves. For fans of Conan Doyle’s immortal detective, the game is always afoot. However, for the great detective the stakes have never been higher as he must mollify a king who refuses to ascend the throne until “order has been restored.”

Book Giveaway For Sherlock Holmes on The Roof of The World (Holmes Behind The Veil Book 1)

Book Giveaway For Sherlock Holmes on The Roof of The World (Holmes Behind The Veil Book 1)

Holmes framed for murder! Who is the mysterious Issa? The sounds of running and men crying out came closer. Suddenly Sigerson’s door burst open and an army of yellow- and maroon-clad police monks fell upon us, dragging us out into the street without so much as a word of explanation, through the mud and dung and then east across the Bridge of the Pleiades and on to the Jo-Kang, the Tibetan cathedral, the Holy of Holies of all Buddist Asia, then along several corridors and down numerous staircases and finally we found ourselves in the presence of the High Regent himself, the fourteen-year-old Dalai Lama! You are holding one of the rare stories to come to light involving “Sigerson,” the name Sherlock Holmes went by during the years when the world thought he was dead—his Great Hiatus! This story also has the distinction of being the true first sequel to Horace Holly’s She, which was published in 1887 under the byline of Holly’s agent, H. Rider Haggard. The only heretofore known sequel, Ayesha: The Return of She, was published in 1904 and records events that occurred two decades after She. This new tale, then, is a record of the events that took place between the two previously published adventures.

Book Giveaway For The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories – Part VI: 2017 Annual

Book Giveaway For The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories – Part VI: 2017 Annual

2017 is the 130th anniversary of the publication of A Study in Scarlet, the first recorded adventure of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John H. Watson. What an amazing journey it’s been! In addition to the pitifully few sixty tales originally presented in The Canon, published between 1887 and 1927, there have been literally thousands of additional Holmes adventures in the form of books, short stories, radio and television episodes, movies, manuscripts, comics, and fan fiction. And yet, for those who are true friends and admirers of the Master Detective of Baker Street, where it is always 1895 (or a few decades on either side of that!) these stories are not enough. Give us more! In 2015, The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories burst upon the scene, featuring stories set within the correct time period, and written by many of today’s leading Sherlockian authors from around the world. Those first three volumes were overwhelmingly received, and there were soon calls for additional collections. Since then, the popularity has only continued to grow. Two more volumes were released in 2016, and this the first of two planned for 2017 – with no end in sight! The thirty-five stories in this volume – now bringing the total number of narratives and participating authors in this series to well over one-hundred! – represent some of the finest new Holmesian storytelling to be found, and honor the man described by Watson as “the best and wisest … whom I have ever known.”

The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories – Part VI: 2017 Annual is available for pre order from all good bookstores including in the USA The Strand Magazine, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, in the UK Amazon, Waterstones, and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.
