Here are five stunning novellas featuring the great detective, by the acknowledged master of Sherlockian pastiche. 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 Zimmermann Telegram,  establishes a link between two missing lighthouse keepers and the royal treasures of King John, and more. Included are: “The Case of the Tell-Tale Hands,” “The Case of the King’s Evil,” “The Case of the Portuguese Sonnets,” “The Case of Peter the Painter,” and “The Case of the Zimmermann Telegram.”

“With respect for the canon, deep knowledge of Victorian and Edwardian Great Britain, and the writing chops to replicate the Watsonian style, Thomas is the all-time best at Sherlockian pastiche.”--Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine
