Holmes returns!—in five ingenious new novellalength tales featuring the Great Detective. Once again the game is afoot, in these highly original stories featuring Sherlock Holmes at the height of his powers. Crossing historical fact with inventive fiction, the master of pastiche Donald Thomas plunges Holmes into London’s Siege of Sidney Street, where he ratiocinates alongside Winston Churchill in obstructing an anarchist’s assassination plot led by ‘Peter the Painter.’ In the next adventure, Holmes and Watson are confounded by the Riddle of the Zimmerman Telegram during World War I, as Holmes must employ all his wits to defeat a plan for a German-led invasion of the United States. In other mystifying tales of detection, Sherlock Holmes searches for the treasures of King John, lost in 1216. Foiling a foul extortion attempt, Holmes and Watson aid in discovering Lord Byron’s epic poem evoking his secret journey to Virginia. Finally the great detective, in a bravura performance, confronts a supernatural curse in “Lord Arthur Savile’s Crime.” Donald Thomas has published forty books, including poetry, fiction, biography and true crime. A stage-play based on his work, The Return of Sherlock Holmes, was recently produced in Wales. His biography of Robert Browning was short-listed for the Whitbread Award and he received The Gregory Award from T. S. Eliot personally for his poetry collection Points of Contact. He lives in Bath.
