Book Description :

When the papal apartments are burgled in 1901, Sherlock Holmes is summoned to Rome by Pope Leo XII. After learning from the pontiff that several priceless cameos that could prove compromising to the church, and perhaps determine the future of the newly unified Italy, have been stolen, Holmes is asked to recover them. In a parallel story, Michelangelo, the toast of Rome in 1501 after the unveiling of his Pieta, is commissioned by Pope Alexander VI, the last of the Borgia pontiffs, with creating the cameos that will bedevil Holmes and the papacy four centuries later. For fans of Conan Doyle’s immortal detective, the game is always afoot. However, the great detective has never encountered an adversary quite like the one with whom he crosses swords in “The Vatican Cameos.”.

Book Description :

Fresh from almost getting killed helping Sebastian McCabe solve The 1895 Murder, Jeff Cody and Lynda Teal are enjoying their honeymoon alone in Rome when mystery and murder intrude. The disappearance of a young American’s Roman boyfriend seems like a familiar tale of a summer romance leading to heartbreak . . . until a cameo necklace purchased at the Vatican is stolen right off of Lynda’s neck. The feisty young journalist finds a connection between the two events as she solves her own case for the first time. In a departure from the McCabe – Cody mystery novels, she also narrates the story. The many fans of Jeff and Lynda will be delighted to read this short story bridge to the next novel in the series, The Disappearance of Mr. James Phillimore.

Book Description :

On the morning of the vernal equinox in 1899, Holmes is roused from his bed by Lestrade. The inspector has received a report of a girl brutally murdered at Stonehenge. Upon arriving at the famed site, Holmes discovers the body of a young woman. On her forehead, painted in blood, is a druidic symbol. On her side, also in blood, is a message written in a strange language that neither Holmes nor Lestrade can decipher. The girl was also eviscerated and her organs placed around her body. As a final touch, branches from yew trees had been artistically arranged around the corpse. Holmes senses a malevolent force at work, but without data, he is powerless. As the weeks pass, he slowly gathers information about the ancient druids and Celtic mythology and begins to assemble a small army of experts to assist him. Expecting the killer to strike again on the summer solstice, Holmes and Watson travel to the Nine Ladies in Derbyshire, the site of another stone circle that harkens to druidic times. While they are holding their vigil, Lestrade and his men are off keeping watch over the stone circles at Avebury and several other locations. The Great Detective’s worst fears are realized when on the morning of the summer solstice, he learns that the body of a young man has been discovered in the eye of the White Horse of Uffington. Like the first victim, he too has been marked with a druidic symbol and his body bears a message. Aside from the symbol and the message, the only other difference appears to be that his body and organs have been surrounded by willow branches. Realizing full well that a maniac reminiscent of the Ripper is on the loose, Holmes and Watson find themselves in a race against time as they try to locate the cult, identify the killer and prevent another tragedy.

Book Description :

The dispatch-box of Doctor John H. Watson, the faithful companion and biographer of Sherlock Holmes, was the second such box to be sent to Hugh Ashton, who has edited and commented on the adventures in this volume. With two exceptions, these stories have appeared previously in print, in the Dispatch-box series published by Inknbeans Press. Here, though, for the first time in one edition, in homage to the original style of The Strand Magazine, are the adventures of Sherlock Holmes in: - The Affair of the Vatican Cameos - The Reigate Poisoning Case - The Reigate Poisoning Case: Concluded - The Story of John Henry Augustus Clay (as told by himself) - The Abernetty Horror - The Adventure of the Finsbury House - The Curious Affair of the Archdeacon - An Account of the Victor Lynch Forgery (by Inspector Lestrade) - The Russian Bear - The Adventure of the Hand of Glory - The Adventure of the Disappearing Spoon - The Lichfield Murder - The Case of the Two Detectives - The Tarleton Murders - The Case of the Abominable Wife - Vamberry the Wine Merchant - The Singular Affair of the Aluminium Crutch - The Adventure of the Two Bottles Hugh Ashton has been praised as being one of the authors who come closest to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in his depiction of the great detective and his world. "Hugh Ashton ... reproduces the Watson style very acceptably, and great care is taken over the appearance of his texts." The District Messenger, newsletter of the Sherlock Holmes Society of London.

"At last, for fans of Baker Street, a complete and handy reference to the Great Detective's every case. What famous match was made in the Criterion Bar? In which story does Holmes reveal his extraordinary knowledge of cigars? Who was Irene Adler--and why, to Sherlock Holmes, was she always THE woman?
