Inhaltsangabe: 'Thomas' imitation is wryly and subtly done' - 'Guardian". Following the success of "The Secret Cases of Sherlock Holmes", a new group of unpublished tales of real-life crime is presented by Dr Watson from the documents in the famous tin-box. For example, what were Holmes' views on one of the most infamous murderers of the 20th century, Dr Crippen? And what happened when Oscar Wilde visited Baker Street to seek advice? What grim discovery did Holmes and Watson make when investigating the bizarre scandal of naked bicyclists in rural Essex? How did Holmes uncover a loving husband as one of the most dangerous psychopaths of modern times? And just what horrors await the pair in the darkened slums of Waterloo Road ...? Relating Holmes' part in real-life crimes of the day, Donald Thomas brings the Great Detective to life once again in six narratives displaying Holmes at his most determined, inventive and downright devious.
