Synopsis of book»

These are the despairing words of Dr John Watson as he attempts to set down the adventures of the famous master detective Sherlock Holmes. Not only does his editor at The Strand magazine require stories of strictly no more than 9000 words and Holmes insist on complicating matters further by censoring his friend, but Watson's adoring wife, Mary, has her own opinions about the project in hand. And so it is at her instigation that Watson begins his secret journal.

Within these pages you will find the answers to many questions surrounding the most famous sleuthing pair in the history of fiction. What were the real circumstances behind the mystery of 'The Blue Carbuncle'? What actually happened on Dartmoor as they tracked 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'? How many adventures never made it into print? But most intriguing of all, how did Holmes die in his final duel with Moriarty - and then come back to life?

Charting the course of the two men's friendship, this ingenious pastiche draws on the entire canon and is a delight from beginning to end. Rich in scholarship, wit and period detail, this remarkable novel will delight fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
