These are stories of the sort loved by true fans of the greatest of all detectives, in which a client tells Holmes a strange tale, drawing him into a baffling mystery. Whether in fogbound London or deep in the English countryside, these action-packed stories, set during the 1880s and early 1890s, before Holmes?s disappearance at the Reichenbach Falls, faithfully recreate the atmosphere of Conan Doyle?s early Holmes stories.
This wonderful anthology brings together the best work of Denis O. Smith, much admired for his new Sherlock Holmes stories, including `A Hair?s Breadth?, `The Adventure of the Smiling Face? and `An Incident in Society?. Ten of these stories have never previously been published in book form.
