Once more, the game's afoot as Sherlock Holmes of Baker Street returns in twenty new adventures specially commissioned for Wordsworth's Mystery & Supernatural series. The celebrated detective, along with his friend and biographer, Dr Watson, investigate a variety of baffling mysteries that will delight fans of the famous sleuth. Striding through the foggy gas lit streets of London, Holmes tackles such cases as the puzzle of the Green Skull, the secret of the Brown Box, the conundrum of the Dragon of Lea Lane, as well as coming face to face once again with the Sussex Vampire. We also learn what really happened at the Reichenbach Falls when Holmes had his fateful encounter with Professor Moriarty. David Stuart Davies, Denis O. Smith, Mark Valentine, Matthew Booth, M.J. Elliott and the other talented writers who have contributed to this collection have followed closely in the footsteps of Arthur Conan Doyle in creating a wonderful feast of Sherlockian entertainment.

This collection is described by the editor as "... a new batch of twenty adventures ... to fascinate and entertain you." The recent appearances of several assemblages of Sherlockian tales constructed around one theme or another have tended to jade the palates of Sherlockians for specialized sorts of mysteries. Without citing any particular example, I have noted, and reviewed, a number of specialized collections in recent times to the point that the appearance of a solid `clump' of Sherlockian entertainment is a welcome arrival. Unfortunately, the Publisher has not seen fit to include credits for earlier publications of many of the included items.
