Sherlock Holmes

The Hidden Years

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In 1891, Sherlock Holmes in a struggle with his arch-enemy, the Napoleon of Crime, Professor James Moriarty, plunged with him over the Reichenbach Falls to his inevitable death. All of England - indeed the entire world - mourned the irreplaceable loss of the world's greatest detective. And that's where things stood until 1894 when Holmes suddenly reappeared in London, revealing himself to his friend Dr. John Watson, and resumed his activities as a consulting detective. Holmes remained very quiet and mysterious on those missing three years, never really revealing precisely where he'd been and what he'd done in the 'hidden years."

Now, in this anthology of original stories the truth about those thirty-five months is unveiled and Holmes' adventures described. While some stories place Holmes in such familiar locations as New York and San Francisco, others find him high in the Himalayas or above the Arctic Circle. With stories from such writers as Rhys Bowen, Peter Beagle, Carolyn Wheat, Michael Collins and many others, Sherlock Holmes: The Hidden Years is a must-have book for every fan who has every wondered about the untold adventures of Sherlock Holmes.

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 09, 2009 – The 10 all-original tales in Edgar-finalist Kurland s lively third Sherlock Holmes anthology (after 2004 s Sherlock Holmes: The Hidden Years) chronicle the exploits of the fledgling sleuth in America, before he settled in Baker Street. Richard A. Lupoff gets the volume off to a strong start with Inga Sigerson Weds, in which the adolescent Sherlock s cash-strapped parents send him and his jealous sister across the Atlantic to a distant cousin s New York City wedding. In Darryl Brock s witty My Silk Umbrella, Holmes encounters Mark Twain at a Hartford base ball match. The detective meets another Connecticut luminary, P.T. Barnum, in Michael Mallory s droll The Sacred White Elephant of Mandalay. Dr. Watson appears once, in a postscript to Gary Lovisi s improbable The American Adventure, in which the normally emotionless Holmes falls hard for a beautiful stage actress. Other contributors include Steve Hockensmith, Peter Tremayne, and Rhys Bowen.
