Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes has been solving cases and amazing fans for more than a century...Now, today's best mystery writers have gathered together to present fourteen original Holmes stories in one festive collection.

No entry threatens the preeminence of "The Blue Carbuncle." But readers who find Holmes here repeatedly more impressive at tossing off casual inferences than at solving cases should consult Conan Doyle, in whose hands he often behaves much the same.

At first it doesn't seem like the cold laconic Sherlock Holmes would be much of a figure in a Christmas story; but when you consider that he dedicates himself to helping others solve their crises, he does seem a little like Father Christmas. These stories keep Holmes in character while showing the positive effect he has on people's lives(except for the perpetrators of evil). All the stories are superbly written, an admirable effort and a suitable tribute to Doyle.
