Summary:

This follow-up to the national bestseller A Study in Sherlock is a stunning new volume of original stories compiled by award-winning Sherlockians Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger.

The Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were recently voted the top mystery series of all time, and they have enthralled generations of readers—and writers.

Now, Laurie R. King, author of the New York Times bestselling Mary Russell series in which Holmes plays a costarring role, and Leslie S. Klinger, Edgar Award-winning editor of The New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, have assembled a stellar group of contemporary authors from a variety of genres and asked them to create new stories inspired by that canon. Authors included here are Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Michael Dirda, Harlan Ellison, Denise Hamilton, Nancy Holder, John Lescroart, Sara Paretsky, Michael Sims, and more.

Inside you’ll find Holmes in times and places previously unimagined, as well as characters who have themselves been affected by the tales of Sherlock Holmes. The game is afoot—again!

“Devotees of the greatest of all fictional detectives will welcome this anthology from King and Klinger who have assembled a murderers’ row of talent, including bestselling authors not usually associated with Holmes and Watson.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
