Overview


In these five tales of intellectual derring–do, Sherlock Holmes is shown at the height of his powers: he cooperates with a young Winston Churchill in the famed Siege of Sydney Street, helps defeat a plan for a German invasion outlined in the Zimmerman Telegram, establishes a link between two missing lighthouse keepers and the royal treasures of King John, contends with a supernatural curse placed upon an eccentric aristocrat, and discovers a lost epic of Lord Byron. But it is all in a day’s work for the great detective, who continues to defy the odds and lives toddle and ratiocinate another day.

Not my favourite of the many non-canon Holmes but not the worst either. A collection of slightly contrived stories, some of which are a bit underwhelming. One story casts some light on what Holmes and Watson may have been up to during the Great War but I would prefer to think that their war was a bit more exciting!Thomas writes well but is hardly convincing as Conan-Doyle. A bit of a wasted opportunity.
