Overview

Sherlock Holmes is the world's most famous and successful crime mystery detective. All his cases were successfully closed, and then written up for publication by his associate, friend and chronicler Doctor John "Hamish" Watson. However, not all the cases were published. A few cases did not meet with Holmes's personal satisfaction, and were consigned to the obscurity of a safe lock box deep in the vault of England's oldest and most highly respected bank, the Bank of England.
Over the courses of two world wars these cases became lost, and they were known as "the lost cases of Sherlock Holmes." I had thought these lost cases a myth, until one day I purchased an old steamer trunk at auction, and found the lost cases inside. I vowed to publish them, lest they be lost, possibly forever. The case of Sherlock Holmes And The Alien Abduction is the first to be published. It is available to be read on the Kindle, the NOOK, or any other suitable app.
The case begins as Miss Miss Louisa Hotchkiss, beautiful red-headed daughter of famous and immensely wealthy Sir Alfred Hotchkiss, arranges a personal meeting with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. She asks them to investigate the recent mysterious and troubling abduction of Mr. Albert Fletcher, a member in good standing of her Theosophical Society. Mr. Fletcher was abducted near his home in Slough, and being found some distance away in Woking, wandering about incoherent and unable to give an account of himself, a constable was called, and he now resides in Woking jail.
But that is not all. With considerable reluctance Miss Louisa relates the most curious and disturbing part of this affair. According to the signed statement by Mr. Fletcher, the beings who abducted him, whom he describes as "little grey men with big egg shaped heads, no hair, noses or ears, and big oval black eyes," attached a device to his private parts, and took his semen.
Sherlock Holmes accepts the case, and immediately sets off with Watson to interview Nr. Fletcher in Woking jail, but he arrives there too late. By the time he arrives, Mr. Fletcher is mysteriously dead.
When Sherlock Holmes sends Watson to investigate the clock at Woking, and at Slough, from where Mr. Fletcher was abducted, a curious time discrepancy becomes evident, and the abduction circumstances take a curious turn of events in time.
Holmes's investigation solves the murder mystery, but not the abduction circumstances. According to Watson, there is "no way on Earth" the time events of the matter can be explained. Sherlock Holmes agrees.
This most curious and unusual case displays Sherlock Holmes's astonishing abilities of observation, logical reasoning and detection to the full, but nevertheless the case did not meet with his personal satisfaction, he felt it did not merit publication, and therefore it was never published. Until now.
If you like reading Sherlock Holmes crime mysteries, set in Victorian England, and written in the authentic Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Style, you will enjoy reading this book.

    This certainly has an interesting perspective. Different, but I found it enjoyabe, as I do all the works I have read by this author. He has a way of putting things in a different light than one might imagine, otherwise.
