Edited by David Stuart Davies 'The Shadows of Sherlock Holmes' is a fascinating collection of stories featuring detectives, criminal agents and debonair crooks from the golden age of crime fiction: a time when Sherlock Holmes was esconsced in his rooms at 221B Baker Street and London was permanently wreathed in a sinister fog. These gripping tales of mystery, suspense and clever puzzles are wonderfully entertaining and in them you will meet The Crime Doctor, Professor Augustus S.F.X.Van Dusen - The Thinking Machine, Max Carrados - the incredible blind detective, the repulsive but brilliant Skin o' My Teeth, and the natty, ingenious French sleuth Eugene Valmont. On the other side of the law, there are gentleman crooks Raffles and Simon Carn - the Prince of Swindlers. The stories include: "The Purloined Letter" by Edgar Allan Poe, "The Stolen Cigar Case" by Bret Harte, "The Swedish Match" by Anton Chekhov, "Nine Points of the Law" by E.W. Hornung, "The Ghost at Massingham Mansions" by Ernest Bramah and "The Great Pearl Mystery" by Baroness Orczy. AUTHOR: David Stuart Davies, General Editor of Wordsworth's Mystery and Supernatural series, is an editor, novelist, playwright and film historian. He is an expert on Sherlock Holmes, having written four Holmes novels, two plays exploring the darker side of the great detective and three studies of the stage, film and TV career of Arthur Conan Doyle's character.
