"An absolute belter of a Sherlock mystery! Packed with suspense, international intrigue, secret societies, dead ends, rugged islands in the north sea, masterful deceptions, the cosy fireside at Baker Street, connoisseur tobaccos, and nail-biting shoot-outs. Through it, we are in the more than capable hands of the warm, faithful, resolute Watson. And above it all towers Holmes: ascetic, impetuous, unmanageable, indomitable. THE ADVENTURE OF THE FOUND NOTE confirms Matthew Simmonds as a magnificent observer and recreator of Holmes, whose unique Victorian world of contrasts and baffling mysteries is woven into every page. I have been looking forward to this book for a long time, and the wait was more than worth it! If you like Sherlock, brain-cudgelling puzzles, and edge-of-the-seat adventures, you'll love this!"

Darkness clung to the early Baker Street morning as Dr Watson opened the front door. The night watchman held out a small slither of paper. Written faintly upon this were just two short words: "Help me."
Sherlock Holmes must use all of his remarkable powers of deduction to identify the author of this desperate plea. His investigations lead him and his companion into a murky conspiracy - a sinister secret society plotting a fiendish scheme that could destroy the British economy and bring down the government.
From a thunderous carriage chase through the streets of London to a deadly shootout on a remote island off the North-East coast of England, can Holmes and Watson uncover the dark secret that lies within the sinister 'Ex Tenebris' club?
