Overview

This is an original Sherlock Holmes detective murder mystery story by Phillip Duke Ph.D., author of 6 other Sherlock Holmes ebooks.

Fishermen trawling off the coast of England are surprised to see a man's head sticking out of a concrete slab tangled in their nets. Police Inspector Lestrade asks Sherlock Holmes and Dr.John Watson to investigate. Holmes carefully studies and samples the slab, while Dr. Watson examines the head..

Next morning after a good English breakfast, Holmes astounds Watson with his knowledge of cements. The slab is hydraulic cement, and there is only one supplier in the British Isles.

This clue plus another that indicates when the murder occured, leads directly to the murderer and his accomplices, all of whom confess, are speedily tried and convicted. The accomplices are given long prison sentences, at hard labor, and the murderer is hanged. Justice has been done, and the case is closed.

This story was written for a contest that specified a length of no more than 2500 words. The story won a contest prize. I have increased its length, and added 4 color illustrations. Due to its popularity this ebook has been translated into German and Spanish, and is available in these languages..
