Requiem for Sherlock Holmes - kindle ebook by Paul Stuart Hayes

Sherlock Holmes returns in five enthralling cases. Written in an authentic style, each tale adds new layers to the legend of the great detective.

In the novella ‘Sherlock Holmes and the Ancestral Horror’ Sherlock Holmes' father is arrested for the murder of one of his servants. Sherlock is grudgingly brought into the case by his brother Mycroft as a last ditch gamble to save their father and the family name. However, the fractious relationship between father and son makes the investigation extremely challenging. Will they be able to put aside age-old hostilities and find the true culprit before the accused has his date with the gallows? After decades of forced exile, Holmes returns to his childhood home, in the process unlocking long-repressed feelings which force him to confront his troubled past, threatening to expose his darkest secrets. This collection also contains four short stories in which Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson pit their wits against their deadliest foes, culminating in a sea journey for a grieving Watson, who, mourning the loss of his dear friend, leaves London behind in an attempt to escape his memories. However, the journey soon takes an extraordinary turn that could see the good doctor solving one of the city’s greatest unsolved crimes.
