These are stories of the sort loved by true fans of the greatest of all detectives, in which a client tells Holmes a strange tale, drawing him into a baffling mystery. Whether in fogbound London or deep in the English countryside, these action-packed stories, set during the 1880s and early 1890s, before Holmes’s disappearance at the Reichenbach Falls, faithfully recreate the atmosphere of Conan Doyle’s early Holmes stories.

This wonderful anthology brings together the best work of Denis O. Smith, much admired for his new Sherlock Holmes stories, including ‘A Hair’s Breadth’, ‘The Adventure of the Smiling Face’ and ‘An Incident in Society’. Ten of these stories have never previously been published in book form.


In this collection of 12 pastiches, Smith demonstrates his gift for crafting new exploits of the great detective that combine a pitch-perfect Watsonian narrative voice with clever plots
Publishers Weekly
Smith not only knows his Canon, he also knows his Holmes and Watson. Almost everything the pair say and do in these stories rings true, even when the author is fleshing out character traits only barely sketched in the original stories. Hearing Holmes explain why a thoughtful and intelligent man like him takes a foolhardy risk in the excitement of the chase [The Adventure of the Yellow Glove] is a treat. Praise for The Chronicles of Sherlock Holmes, Volume 4
