Twelve loving parodies of the great detective - each a masterpiece in its own rightThe world-famous amateur detective Schlock Homes is eating breakfast when a telegram arrives. It was sent by a woman named Miss Wimpole, and she is terribly upset. Miss Wimpole brings a case that stretches from the tombs of Egypt to the deserts of Mexico, with a stop at the racetrack in between, and it is but the first misadventure in this riotous collection of tales.Whether chasing a counterfeit sovereign or an 'Adam Bomb,' Schlock Homes and Dr. Watney never fail to have a marvelous time - even if they don't quite catch their man.
