Out on Kindle: The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories – Part XVI

The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories – Part XVI

In 2015, The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories burst upon the scene, featuring adventures 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, their popularity has only continued to grow. And now we present a new three-volume set. Like 2017’s two-volumes set, Eliminate the Impossible, this new collection, Whatever Remains … Must Be the Truth features tales of Holmes’s encounters with seemingly impossible events – ghosts and hauntings, cults and curses, mythical beasts and mediums, angels and demons, and more.

All royalties from this collection are being donated by the writers for the benefit of the preservation of Undershaw, one of the former homes of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Part XVI – Whatever Remains Must Be the Truth (1881-1890) features contributions by:
Derrick Belanger, Mark Sohn, Tracy J. Revels, Brenda Seabrooke, Kevin Thornton, Andrew Bryant, Josh Anderson & David Friend, David Marcum, I.A. Watson, Arthur Hall, Tim Gambrell, Shane Simmons, Bob Bishop, Mark Mower, Kelvin Jones, and Jayantika Ganguly, and with a poem by Josh Pachter, and forewords by David Marcum, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Roger Johnson, and Steve Emecz.

Marcum has once again done fans of Conan Doyle’s originals a service.” –  Publishers Weekly

Sherlock Holmes e l’avventura dell’ultima lettera di Boz

Una lettera forse scritta da Dickens con informazioni scottanti scompare misteriosamente…

Holmes e Watson ricevono una visita da parte di un cliente: il banditore d’asta Rathham ha bisogno dell’aiuto del famoso investigatore per venire a capo di un furto. In uno degli scrittoi che saranno venduti alla prossima asta, infatti, è stata ritrovata una lettera che sembrerebbe essere stata scritta da Dickens il giorno stesso della sua morte, in cui si rivelerebbe il finale che aveva progettato per il suo ultimo romanzo, rimasto incompiuto. La lettera però è scomparsa e, insieme a lei, le informazioni scottanti sul finale a sorpresa che “Boz”, pseudonimo del celebre autore inglese, avrebbe scelto per una grande uscita di scena…

Out on Kindle: The Complete Dr. Thorndyke – Volume 1 and Volume 2

The Complete Dr. Thorndyke – Volume 1 and Volume 2

Volume I contains the first three Thorndyke novels, published in 1907, 1911, and 1912, respectively. Set in London during the time that Sherlock Holmes was still in practice, these introduce us to Thorndyke and his world, as well as painting a vivid picture of the London of that era. Volume II contains roughly the first half of the Thorndyke Short Stories. In all, there are over forty Thorndyke short stories, spread over six books. This volume contains the fifteen short stories from the first three, John Thorndyke’s Cases, The Singing Bone, and The Great Portrait Mystery.
When Sherlock Holmes began his practice as a “Consulting Detective”, his ideas of scientific criminal investigations caused the London police to look upon him as a mere “theorist”. And yet, through his work, the science behind catching criminals became so important that it’s hard to now imagine the world without them. Many famous Great Detectives followed in Holmes’s footsteps – Nero Wolfe and Ellery Queen, Hercule Poirot and Solar Pons – but before they began their careers, and while Holmes was still in practice in Baker Street, another London consultant – Dr. John Thorndyke – opened his doors, using the scientific methods developed and perfected by Holmes and taking them to a whole new level of brilliance.

MX Publishing is proud to announce the return of Dr. Thorndyke in a collection of omnibus editions, bringing these masterful adventures of one of the world’s greatest detectives together in an easily available format for modern readers.

Thorndyke will cheerfully show you all the facts. You will be none the wiser … .”– Dorothy L. Sayers, Chronicler of Lord Peter Wimsey

This latest two-volume set would sit proudly on any mystery readers bookshelf! Excellent!” – Raven’s Reviews

The Complete Dr. Thorndyke series is available from all good bookstores including The Strand MagazineAmazon USAAmazon UKWaterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository.

Out on Kindle – 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.
