Why did Holmes leave 26 Montague Street? Why did Holmes visit America? What did he do for Vanderbilt? Why did he remain silent about ‘Jack the Ripper’? Why did the Kings of Denmark, Sweden and Hollan, the Sultan of Turkey, the President of the United states and the Emperor of all the Russias confer on Holmes their highest decorations?
All these questions, and many others, are fully answered here in a book that Michael Harrison, world-renowned authority on Sherlock Holmes, himself calls ‘the best things on Sherlock Holmes I have ever done’.
