A brand new collection of the top TEN most THRILLING, DARING and CLEVER Sherlock Holmes stories ever told! The definitive collection for younger Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts ‘Conan Doyle was very dismissive about his greatest creation - but he'd bottled lightning. The public just loved it. People couldn't get enough of Sherlock and they've never got enough of him since’ MARK GATISS

‘On the contrary, my dear Watson, you can see everything. You fail, however, to reason from what you see’

Herein lie the problems: a stolen jewel, the inexplicable death of a young woman, the disappearance of one of the most remarkable racehorses in England, a missing butler, the curious symbols of dancing men, a broken bust of Napoleon, a possible kidnapping and the bad business of a coachman shot through the heart.

The solution? Elementary my dear friend. Call the super sleuth famed for his rapid deductions, his swift intuitions and ingenious solutions - Sherlock Holmes of 221b Baker Street.

Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can test your powers of observation and deduction, learn about the author and brush up on your detective skills!
