The unpublished manuscripts of Dr John Watson, concealed for years in the depths of a Charing Cross bank vault, are now brought to light.
Sherlock Holmes and his faithful friend and biographer must solve cases as complex as any they have known before.
Some may even bring them face to face with old enemies from the past, figures left behind in the mists of the Reichenbach Falls ...A widow with three hands slips out of a church door ...A farmer lies dead in a barn, his son accused of his murder ...A skeleton with a silver locket is unearthed in a back garden.
What do they have in common? The famous resident of 221B Baker Street. A brand new cache of original cases displays the master of the art of deduction at his intriguing best, proving that the game is still very much afoot.

Review by john257hopper
A reasonable collection of seven new Sherlock Holmes stories. A number of them deal with quite banal crimes, though the collection improved as it went on and the last two, the Missing Belle Fille and the Watchful Waiter I thought were particularly strong. The depiction of Holmes and Watson was I thought pretty authentic.
