We welcome the return of Sherlock Holmes, the world's most renowned and beloved detective!
Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective in literary history. For the first time since the death of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, a new Holmes story has been sanctioned by his estate, whetting the appetites of fans everywhere. Horowitz truly pulls off the wonderful illusion that Arthur Conan Doyle left us one last tale, occurring in 1890 London.
Literary researcher and newest inductee into the Baker Street Irregulars, Harold White, is thrilled when the world's leading expert on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle announces that he's found the author's fabled 'missing diary.' When the man is found murdered, it's Harold who must find the killer and the once again missing diary.
The first Sherlock Holmes letter barrister Reggie Heath answered cost him his fortune, all of his Baker Street Chambers clients, and Laura Rankin, the love of his life. But, he intends to get it all back by representing the driver of one of London's famous Black Cabs, who has been accused of killing to American tourists. Meanwhile, the letters to Sherlock keep piling up.
Long retired, Sherlock Holmes quietly pursues his study of honeybee behavior on the Sussex Downs. He never imagines he would encounter anyone whose intellect matched his own, much less an audacious teenage girl with a penchant for detection. Miss Mary Russell becomes Holmes' pupil and quickly hones her talent for deduction, disguises, and danger. But when an elusive villain enters the picture, their partnership is put to a real test.
