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!

A good fun read

Like the other two books in this series, this is a group of stories from different authors. I didn't really like a couple but there were others that were great. If you like Sherlock Holmes, you will like all three of these. A good fun read!

A new look at an old author.

Very very interesting. I read the Sherlock Holmes stories a really long time ago, but I read and listen to audio tapes and CD's of mystery stories all the time. Some of these authors I had heard of and some not. I liked one new one enough to get one of his books to read on Kindle.

Well worth it!

Not every story is worth 5 stars, but that is the nature of anthologies. There were no duds. The story of how this collection came to be is also quite interesting.

Interesting stories with some different insight into the man
