From the theft of an Imperial Chinese artefact to mass poisonings, the blackmail of a Bishop to a Royal assassination attempt at a masked, Venetian Ball, this collection of stories by the English author, Dick Gillman, has it all. These twelve stories cover the period from 1889 to 1919 and provide the reader with a rare glimpse of the variety of cases which Holmes’ clients have brought to him at 221b Baker Street. Dick Gillman has been writing for over 10 years now and his work has achieved critical acclaim from some of the finest Sherlockian writers in the world today.
