Overview

A follow-up collection to well-received The Perils of Sherlock Holmes!

Award-winning author Loren D. Estleman has curated a collection of Sherlock Holmes stories from some of the finest authors in Sons of Moriarty and More Stories of Sherlock Holmes. This is the first time that these stories appear together in one anthology, including "Sons of Moriarty," a Sherlock Holmes novella, appearing here for the first time.

Estleman's last Holmes collection, The Perils of Sherlock Holmes, was authorized by the Estate of Arthur Conan Doyle and was met with rave reviews. It was dubbed "an excellent collection of short stories and essays" by the New York Review of Books, "an entertaining and diverting read" by Bookpleasures.com, and was said to transport readers "to another place and time during the series of short stories that pay homage to the legend that is Sherlock Holmes" on the Pop Culture Guy Blog.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
09/23/2013
This solid anthology collects five previously published shorter Sherlock Holmes pastiches, plus a new novella from Estleman (The Perils of Sherlock Holmes). John Lutz’s suspenseful “The Infernal Machine,” in which Holmes tries to solve the murder of arms manufacturer Sir Clive Oldsbolt, nicely conveys the era when horseless carriage backfires sounded like shots from a Gatling gun. Lenore Carroll’s clever “Before the Adventures” depicts a meeting between Dr. Watson, recovering from his war injuries while living alone in London, and an observant stranger who foreshadows Sherlock Holmes. In Estleman’s eponymous novella, Magdalena Venucci, daughter of an assassin from Doyle’s “Six Napoleons,” wants to take her father’s remains back to Italy, despite Inspector Lestrade’s heated objections. Readers learn about the origins of the Mafia, its code of omerta (or silence), and its cruel extortion methods in this lively adventure set in London and New York.

From the Publisher

"This solid anthology collects five previously published shorter Sherlock Holmes pastiches, plus a new novella from Estleman (The Perils of Sherlock Holmes)." - Publishers Weekly

"The main entree...was an original heretofore unpublished novella.... Estleman seems to always be reliable for a higher standard of pastiche.... I thoroughly enjoyed this, and would recommend it without reservation to any ardent admirer of the Great Detective." - London Fog blog

"A worthy addition to the collections of pastiches already on shelves, though not necessarily currently on the market. If you've never been introduced to Fish's or Derleth's Holmes-and-Watson variants, this volume may be a necessity. For any mystery lover it's useful - for budding Sherlockians, it's the perfect gift." - Broadway World
