Out today – Sherlock Holmes and The Folk Tale Mysteries – Volume 1

A home invasion results in property damage. Children disappear and a disgruntled ex-employee is suspected. Girl visits relative, walks in on scene of carnage. A man searches for days, seeking his lost love. A young woman accuses her father’s wife of attempted murder. Dramatic news from CNN?  Stories ripped from today’s headlines?  No, they are cases investigated by Mr. Sherlock Holmes and his intrepid companion and biographer, Dr. John H. Watson.  Drawn into the dark underbelly of folk tale reality, Holmes and Watson travel the streets of London and into the far English countryside to discover the truth about some of the most famous accounts found in childhood literature.  Described in Dr. Watson’s inimitable style and with the names changed to protect the innocent, these tales recount how Sherlock Holmes investigated cases involving missing children, a trio of brothers threatened with destruction and the contents of an ancient box that told a tale of heroism and death. Enter the world of the world’s first consulting detective.  Stand again in Baker Street and look up at the windows of 221B.  That shadow on the blind, is it Lestrade, coming to tell of a baffling case he has failed to solve?  Or is it Mrs. Hudson, bring tea and sandwiches to a suffering client?  Could it be the Great Detective himself, pacing up and down the length of the room, wrapping his mighty brain around yet another conundrum presented for his consideration?  Join Dr. Watson in the adventures that live on these pages and you’ll never think the same about folk tales and nursery rhymes again.

Sherlock Holmes and The Folk Tale Mysteries – Volume 1 is available from all good bookstores including Amazon USA, Amazon UK, Waterstones UK and for free shipping worldwide Book Depository .

Released today (18th May) – The first in the ‘Before Watson’ series.

It is Spring, 1874, and twenty-year-old Sherlock Holmes is a lonely, mopey, friendless Oxford student. He attends classes and spends countless solitary hours conducting chemical experiments, reading, and playing his violin. Suddenly, his life changes because of a serendipitous moment on campus. While walking on the grounds of the university and practicing fencing moves with his foil, he encounters Victor Trevor and his sweetheart, Poppy Stamford, younger sister of the man who will one day introduce Sherlock to Dr. John Watson. Having just attended the final rowing contest of Eights Week, Victor and Poppy are also walking with her bull terrier. When the dog decides he doesn’t like the looks of Sherlock, he sinks his teeth into Sherlock’s ankle.  This dog bite incident becomes a life-changing event for all of them. Through his new friendship with Victor Trevor and encouraged by Victor’s father to use his genius for detective work, Sherlock discovers his uncanny abilities as he and Poppy are thrust into a dangerous investigation into England’s notorious baby-farming industry. Be an eyewitness to the emergence of how Sherlock became the man and the legend we know today….

Luke Benjamen Kuhns reviews Sherlock Holmes & Young Winston: The Jubilee Plot

“It’s Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee but festive celebrations are not the only thing afoot in this riveting and exciting read by Mike Hogan.

I couldn’t help by find myself thoroughly engaged throughout this novel. I enjoyed that Mike didn’t just make use of the classic canonical characters such as Mycroft and Lestrade, he also makes use of characters from the Greek Interpreter along with his insertion of historical figures.

Mike keeps true to Doyle’s style and the characteristics of Doyle’s characters. I enjoyed the relationship between Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Watson, and young Winston Churchill. The three play off each other very well. Mike’s grasp on historical events as well as Victorian London is something to be admired.

Fans of Sherlock Holmes won’t be disappointed with this instalment in the Sherlock Holmes and Young Winston series. New comers to Holmes, or for those simply looking for a thrilling Victorian crime will greatly enjoy this book.”

Sherlock Holmes and Young Winston: The Jubilee Plot  is available from all good bookstores worldwide including in the USA Amazon and Barnes and Noble, in the UK AmazonWaterstones .
