This beautiful literary novel imagines Sherlock Holmes at age ninety-three.

His phenomenal mental acuity diminishing and the emotional life he had always resisted pushing its way to the surface, the world's greatest detective is forced to confront the most baffling mystery of his career, that of the meaning and significance of his own inner life.

For those familiar with Sherlock Holmes, this story is in some way closure to a life well spent. The story weaves Holmes past and present with three different tales working through Holmes offten times declining capacities to remember, detect, and rationalize. Though failing, Holmes remains a dignified character throughout. Moreover, Holmes reveals a few "human" qualities of compassion and fallibility rarely displayed in the young Holmes "in the chase" of his early tales.
