"An excellent collection of short stories and essays." --New York Review of Books
"An entertaining and diverting read." --BookPleasures.com
"Estleman's style as Watson is better than many." --BestofSherlock.com
"Readers are transported back to another place and time during the series of short stories that pay homage to the legend that is Sherlock Holmes." --Pop Culture Guy

"The Hound of the Baskervilles." "A Scandal in Bohemia." "The Sign of the Four." These are just a few of the well-known mysteries solved by the one and only Sherlock Holmes. The legendary detective is one of the most enduring literary characters of all time, and he appears once more in The Perils of Sherlock Holmes. Each of these adventurous tales has been authorized by the estate of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. While you may recognize some of these stories, others--such as "The Serpent's Egg"--are revealed for the very first time. Other works in this collection include three previously published essays that delve deeper into the daring world of Sherlock Holmes and the imaginative mind of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
