“I need more Sherlock Holmes!”
If that’s your cry, you’re not alone. It’s been over 125
years since Sherlock Holmes first appeared in print and captured the hearts and
loyalty of readers young, old, and in between. While Sherlock Holmes came from
a by-gone era, he seems to be quit comfortable in the twenty-first century. He
holds the title as the most portrayed literary human character in film and TV,
having been “rendered” by over 75 different actors appearing in 254 different
films.Of course, Sherlock has
been a hit at movie box offices, and is currently appearing in several new TV
series, including ones on PBS and the BBC.
So, if you’re one of the
millions of Sherlock Holmes aficionados, you’ll be pleased to learn that there
five totally new adventures coming this fall in the book Sherlock Holmes –
The Golden Years, by Kim
These five tales take
place after Holmes and Watson believe
they have gone into retirement. Of course, such a notion is irrealizable for
either of them. Indeed, in this new action-packed, historically accurate series
of stories, some of their most remarkable and dangerous adventures await them.
begins with The Bonnie Bag of Bones that lead the infamous duo on a not-so-merry chase
into the mythical mountains of Scotland and ultimately to the “the woman” who
is tangled within a mystery that has haunted Holmes for a quarter century.
Curse of the Black Feather continues the adventure in which
Holmes teams up with the Irregulars, and a gypsy matriarch, to expose a
diabolical “baby-farming” enterprise. Their quest arouses a vicious adversary,
Ciarán Malastier, who has Holmes struggling for his very life.
Maestro of Mysteries begins with a summons to Mycroft’s office and ends
with a deadly chase in Undertown, far beneath the streets of London. Malastier
escapes . . . but only into the next adventure.
The Cure that Kills sees Holmes and Watson in hot pursuit of Ciarán
Malastier, racing across America, and pitting them against the largest
detective organization in the world.
In the final story, The Kongo Nkis Spirit Train, Holmes and Watson travel to the
Dark Continent to derail a “spirit train” that ensnares people’s spirit, and
enslaves their bodies.
In the end, this historically accurate chronicle sheds new
light on greatest mystery of all, Sherlock Holmes himself. eBooks are coming
