Ingeniously contrived and shrewdly executed by some of the finest talents at work in crime fiction today—Anne Perry, Loren Estleman, Gillian Linscott, Edward D.

Greenwood—the eleven stories in this premier volume celebrate the keen mind and singular manners of the Great Detective. "This collection is of the highest order and should be required for every Sherlockian shelf."—Minneapolis Star Tribune "A worthier gift for any mystery aficionado cannot be imagined."—Chicago Sun-Times "Uniformly faithful to the spirit of Doyle's creation."—Publisher's Weekly

From Booklist:

Modern authors can't stop writing about Sherlock Holmes. This collection of 11 short stories brings together some of the best recent efforts. The authors represented, all established veterans of the genre, include such diverse talents as Anne Perry, Edward Hoch, Stuart Kaminsky, and Loren Estleman. Except for some slips into modern language, the stories are uniformly satisfying. In addition to a pace that would delight the energetic Holmes, the stories have clever plots and strong characters, including vivid portraits of historical figures such as Jane Austen, Bram Stoker, and Sir Richard Burton. The action hinges not only on the ancient sins of greed and lust but also on "new" technologies such as photography and motion pictures. This collection should be required reading for anyone planning to write about Holmes, his friends, and his foes. Unlike so many latter-day Holmes tales, done in by rambling dialogue and leaden masses of detail, the stories collected here remind readers of the elements of Conan Doyle's greatness: difficult puzzles, vivid but selective detail, and tight dialogue.
