A stunning new omnibus to fulfill the appetite of every fan of Sherlock Holmes―three volumes of mystery and deduction from a master of the form.
In these sixteen tales of intellectual derring-do, Sherlock Holmes is shown at the height of his powers: he co-operates with a young Winston Churchill in the famed siege of Sydney Street; helps defeat a plan for a German invasion outlined in the Zimmerman Telegram; establishes a link between two missing lighthouse keepers and the royal treasures of King John; contends with a supernatural curse placed upon an eccentric aristocrat; and discovers a lost epic poem of Lord Byron.
Everywhere in these finely wrought tales, encompassing the critically acclaimed The Execution of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes and the King’s Evil, and Sherlock Holmes and the Ghosts of Bly, riddles and mystery hover in the air. But they are not beyond the grasp of the incomparable Sherlock Holmes.

Donald Thomas has published forty books, including poetry, fiction, biography, and true crime. A stage-play based on his work The Return of Sherlock Holmes, was recently produced in Wales. His biography of Robert Browning was short-listed for the Whitbread Award and he received The Gregory Award from T. S. Eliot personally for his poetry collection Points of Contact. The Execution of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes and the King's Evil and Sherlock Holmes and the Ghosts of Bly are all available from Pegasus Books. He lives in Bath.Review:
“Along with excellent detective work, a sense of the cultural, intellectual, and political scene gives the stories added distinction. Donald Thomas is simply the best there is at Sherlockian pastiche.”
- Jon L. Breen, Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine
“Few authors have done as well in bringing these beloved and familiar characters to life. Donald Thomas masterfully evokes the flavor of Doyle’s original stories of the great detective.”
- Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
