About the Book

Sherlock Holmes returns in these tributes to the classic 1940s Universal Pictures Sherlock Holmes film series starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce.

When unspeakable and unexplainable crimes strike the streets of wartime London, in desperation Scotland Yard turn to Sherlock Holmes, the world’s greatest detective. From a serial killer emulating the murders of Jack the Ripper, to the spontaneous combustion of high-profile figures in science and the military, only Sherlock Holmes and the redoubtable Dr Watson can uncover the culprits.

For fans of The Golden Age of Detective Fiction and Sherlock Holmes mysteries.
