Description

In the follow-up to the nationally bestselling A Study in Sherlock, a stunning new volume of original stories from award-winning Sherlockians Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger
The Sherlock Holmes stories by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle were recently voted as the top mystery series of all time, and they have enthralled generations of readers—and writers!

Now, Laurie R. King, author of the New York Times-bestselling Mary Russell series (in which Holmes plays a co-starring role), and Leslie S. Klinger, editor of the New Annotated Sherlock Holmes, have assembled a stellar group of contemporary authors from a variety of genres and asked them to create new stories inspired by that canon. Readers will find Holmes in times and places previously unimagined, as well as characters who have themselves been affected by the tales of Sherlock Holmes.
The resulting volume is an absolute delight for Holmes fans both new and old, with contributions from Michael Connelly, Jeffery Deaver, Michael Dirda, Harlan Ellison, Denise Hamilton, Nancy Holder, John Lescroart, Sara Paretsky, Michael Sims, and more. The game is afoot—again!

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 08, 2014 – Devotees of the greatest of all fictional detectives will welcome this anthology from King and Klinger (A Study in Sherlock), who have assembled a murderers' row of talent, including bestselling authors not usually associated with Holmes and Watson. Only two stories are traditional pastiches; the other 13 pay homage to the spirit of the originals in very different ways. Michael Connelly's "The Crooked Man," in which Harry Bosch consults a coroner named Art Doyle, cleverly riffs on Conan Doyle's "The Adventure of the Crooked Man."A brilliant bipolar patient puts his gifts for Holmesian deduction to use while tracking a serial killer in Jeffrey Deaver's "The Adventure of the Laughing Fisherman." Cornelia Funke provides insights into Holmes's youth in her moving "Lost Boys," while an elderly Holmes plays a heroic role during WWII in John Lescroart's stirring "Dunkirk." Klinger himself weighs in with one of the more memorable entries, "The Closing," which offers a sophisticated variation on one of the most tragic canonical adventures. According to the editors' illuminating introduction, a similarly themed second volume is in the works.
