THE HACKNEY HORROR: The best brains in the country are being hijacked from London-only the brains!; the brutalized bodies discarded after surgery. Holmes and Watson track the perpetrators to a factory in Scotland where they discover invaders with designs not just on London, but the whole planet. Can Holmes stop the alien schemes in time?
THE LONG SLEEP: Three buisnessmen discover a unique avenue to fame and fortune, but when an unseen force begins to kill them, Holmes and Watson must uncover the secret of the sarcophagus from Persia. Time is of the essence: something walks the streets of London, something bent on revenge at having been woken from its long sleep.
THE LOST HUSBAND: A worried wife sends Holmes and Watson into the bowels of the new underground to uncover a fiendish scheme-the recently deceased are being forced work as slave labor in the tunnels. Soon the walking dead come up into the city itself, spreading mayhem and disease. Holmes must find the perpetrator of these atrocities, and stop him, before the plague engulfs London.

Nice bit of terror

This book did surprise me in that I started reading the stories knowing it would entail Holmes and Watson against the supernatural. I found I very much enjoyed the stories. The stories were well layout with the characters true to Doyle's vision (although Doyle didn't see them fight the supernatural) and suspenseful. This is a book I will read again.
Valuable addition to my Holmes library.
Supernatural Holmes works well.

I've always thought that the supernatural and Holmes would go together well and it's nice to see William Meikle prove me right! I enjoyed all the stories in this collection and forgot that I wasn't reading a Conan Doyle story as the characterisation and the writing are really excellent. A couple of the stories were really "unputdownable" once I'd got into them and I had a couple of late nights as I wanted to finish them.
