Overview

The Secret Cases of Sherlock Holmes by Donald Thomas

The premise: Sherlock Holmes did not in fact retire in 1903 to a quiet life of beekeeping in Sussex, but instead worked covertly as the consulting detective in some of the Edwardian era's most baffling, actual cases. The result: A collection of tales that compellingly weds fiction to history, as Baker Street's famous resident and his cohort Dr. Watson investigate seven of the most celebrated mysteries in the annals of true crime, from the grisly murder of a prostitute to the alleged bigamy of King George V.
