A scarce book from this highly regarded Sherlockian series
'There is nothing - nothing Watson - in today's prints that promises the least interest. . . Sometimes I wonder that I troubled to return. There were subjects of investigation far more worthy of my skills in Tibet alone,' snapped the great detective. After an absence of three years Sherlock Holmes has returned to London and his old partner Dr Watson knows only too well the dissatisfaction which overtakes his friend in times of inactivity.

London swelters in a heatwave and Sherlock Holmes frets in inactivity until a young police constable arrives from the West of England.

Holmes and Watson travel west to the small village of Weston Stacey where, disguised as a man of leisure interested in folklore, Holmes begins his investigation into the mysterious death of Bea Collins.

A Chris Tyroll mystery thriller
Just before the start of the Christmas festivities, two very different women manage to turn West Midland lawyer Chris Tyroll's life upside down. One is his Australian fiancee, Sheila McKenna who arrives unexpectedly at Heathrow and, to Chris's delight, announces that she has arranged a year's sabbatical in England. The other is the less shapely, but equally beguiling Granny Cassidy who persuades Chris, against his better judgement, to take on the appeal of a man who has served twelve years for armed robbery.
