From the Fertile Crescent to the Far Fast, the untold adventures of Sherlock Holmes during the three-year gap between his ‘death’ and dramatic return.

But Holmes has escaped and is alive.

From 1891 to 1894, Holmes wanders through Asia. He is alone, without Watson, without Scotland Yard, armed only with his physical strength and his revered cold logic and rationality. The adventures recounted in The Lost Years of Sherlock Holmes range from Lhasa to Katmandu, from the East Indies to the deserts of Rajasthan. He confronts the tsarist agent Dorjiloff, the great art thief Anton Furer, and the mysterious Captain Fantôme. For Holmes’s fans throughout the world, the stories in The Lost Years of Sherlock Holmes fill an enigmatic missing chapter in the great detective’s career.

Jaico Sherlock Holmes Series

Drugged, manacled, condemned to a dank cell in the depths of London’s infamous Newgate prison, the world’s greatest literary detective awaits execution by a vengeful crew of formidable enemies. Escape is impossible; death, a certainty.

But not for Sherlock Holmes, who, in a stunning display of intellect and derring-do, will elude his hangman’s noose and live to fiddle, spy and ratiocinate another day.

Against tremendous odds, Holmes will continue to defy his enemies in four more encounters, from cracking German intelligence codes, to going against Scotland Yard and the Crown in proving the innocence of a man condemned to death for the slaying of a pregnant serving girl, to an arsenic-wielding magician, and of course, to a battle of wits with the malevolent Moriarty. Everywhere in these five finely-wrought tales, riddles and mystery hover in the air. But they are not beyond the grasp of the incomparable Holmes.

Jaico Sherlock Holmes Series

Donald Thomas combines his expertise as a novelist and criminal historian to give a brand-new twist to the adventures of Conan Doyle’s famous creation.

Accompanied as ever by Dr. Watson, Holmes here investigates: The alleged bigamy of King George V... The theft of the Irish Crown Jewels in 1907... The bizarre circumstances of the death of President Faure of France... Such dramas are not fiction but historical reality.

The investigations described in this volume relate the part played by the great detective in seven major crimes or scandals of the day, some of them too damaging to the monarchy, the government or the security of the nation to be fully revealed at the time.

Compiled in narrative form by Dr. Watson soon after the great detective’s death, Holmes’s notes have been kept under lock and key at the Public Record Office in Chancery Lane.

Now, seventy years later, we can finally open the secret casebook of Sherlock Holmes.

ISBN 978-81-8495-502-6  
Jaico Sherlock Holmes Series

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson traverse the British Isles and the Italian peninsula in a rousing series of new adventures.

After a thrilling jaunt in the Far East, Holmes and Watson return to England to address an inheritance left by one of Watson’s relatives in Cornwall, half of which is entrusted to Sherlock Holmes.

Financially secure, the two are now free to spend as much time on Baker Street and the Continent as they please, and the duo find themselves as comfortable in Rome on the banks of the Tiber as they do on the Thames. As Holmes rationalizes and ratiocinates his way through adventure after adventure, from The Case of Two Bohemes to A Singular Event in Tranquebar, it is all in a day’s work, until clues surface that his great nemesis, Professor James Moriarty, might still be alive . . .

“There’s no way to dance around it: Ted Riccardi’s work is absolutely brilliant. It is as if he is channeling Conan Doyle. Once you’re a few pages into these stories, you would swear that these were newly discovered manuscripts, unearthed by Conan Doyle’s estate. Or, better yet, I had the feeling that I had stumbled upon some pulp magazines where Conan Doyle was still writing. Riccardi has it all down – the cadence, the language, everything. He doesn’t try to subtly update Holmes for the modern audience, either. It is as if each and every tale was written at the turn of the century, and not the twenty-first.”

Sherlock Holmes: The Lost Stories
John H Watson & Edited by Tony Reynolds
J-2329  
Rs.325  
220p  
ISBN 978-81-8495-580-4  
The recent decease of one of the descendants of Dr. Watson has brought to light his personal papers. These include a number of stories that Dr. Watson suppressed at the time for various reasons. As all involved are long dead, the inheritor has agreed to the publication of a set the most interesting adventures.

Overall, The Lost Stories is a collection of entertaining, canonically consistent tales whose intentionally understated plots are refreshingly limited in scope, relishing in the quotidian of everyday ‘bad behavior’ – opposed to falling prey to that great pastiche writer’s temptation of crafting a short story of epic proportions populated by an abundance of big name historical figures and playing the ‘what really happened’ game where Massive Historical Event X actually hinged on Holmes’ secret intervention.

TONY REYNOLDS, makes Holmes come alive, he has been able to capture the style of Arthur Conan Doyle’s writing in this book, a series of nine adventures. The fact that this novel captures Doyle’s writing style is one of the greatest advantages for this series of stories.
