Here are three short stories each involving Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson and each taxing their powers of observation and detection to the absolute maximum.
Roy Templeman, the author, was a primary schoolmaster and has introduced countless children to the immortal characters of Sherlock Holmes and Watson. In the Chinese Junk Affair Holmes, Watson and the reader travel together in a desperate search to find the truth about an invention that could alter the balance of power and endanger Britain and the Empire.
The Tick Tock Man sees Holmes and Watson on a walking holiday in Derbyshire, where their tranquillity is shattered by a curious death and a talking raven. Finally in the Trophy Room, Holmes is presented with a classic locked room mystery as he solves a seemingly impossible crime.
