There are also five Holmes (and ACD) campaigns running on Kickstarter at the moment.

Mrs Hudson Goes To Paris - Susan Knight - 14th Feb 2022

This is Susan Knight's third book featuring Mrs Hudson as investigator. The first was a short story collection (Mrs Hudson Investigates) and the second her first novel (Mrs Hudson Goes To Ireland).

The Sherlock Holmes Society of London's review of Mrs Hudson Goes To Ireland was glowing - Rarely do I finish a book in one sitting; on this occasion I had to burn the midnight oil to find out what happened in the end. If Mr Holmes ever worried about his competition, he need only look under his own roof; in Mrs Hudson, he may have well and truly met his match in terms of her investigating skills!

Sherlock Holmes and The Strange Death of Brigadier-General Delves - Tim Symonds - 8th May 2022

It’s 1898.  Kismet brings about a chance reunion at a London club between Dr. Watson and Colonel “Maiwand Mike” Fenlon, former military comrades from their Northwest Frontier days and the desperate Battle of Maiwand. A week later an urgent cable seeking Sherlock Holmes’s help arrives from the Bailiwick of Guernsey, a British Crown Dependency 30 miles off the coast of Normandy. A retired high-ranking British Indian Army officer who commanded the troops at Maiwand has dropped dead. Colonel Fenlon is in a holding cell awaiting trial for his murder.

What role in the Brigadier-General’s death was played by a phial of patent medicine developed in India to treat cholera? Why are Colonel Fenlon’s forefinger and thumbprint on the neck of the phial when he swears he has never seen it before?

Above all, why is Fenlon refusing to enter a plea or even to tell his Defence counsel what took place the evening the Brigadier-General dropped dead?

This is Tim's sixth Sherlock Holmes novel - four of which have been translated into Italian by Mondadori.

Sherlock Holmes: The Pearl of Death and Other Early Stories

In "The Pearl of Death", Holmes and Watson are asked by Scotland Yard to recover a stolen, priceless, giant, cursed pearl - and nearly die while doing so. "Mrs Watson’s Gold Locket" presents a rare mystery that Holmes fails to solve. In the "Mystery of the Nameless Man", a traveler with amnesia enlists Holmes’ aid in finding out who he is, where he came from, and why he’s in London. "Lure of the Rhinoceros Head" pits Holmes against an adversary he’ll never be able to catch. The epic "Case of the Marble Ghost" presents Holmes with a mystery so baffling he nearly brings himself and Scotland Yard to ruin trying to solve it. 

Holmes, Watson and Mycroft, Holmes’ older brother, interview the famous French adventure writer, Jules Verne, in "The Predictability Problem". What they learn about the impending future of the British Empire rattles them to their cores. In "Bane of the Black Brigand", Mrs. Hudson is caught in her kitchen holding a bloody knife while standing over the murdered corpse of a strange copper-haired man. "The Late Constable Avery" shows how Holmes cleverly solves the murder of a constable’s wife simply by using his immense powers of logic, observation and deduction. "A Most Irregular Murder" details Holmes’ very personal investigation concerning the murder of one of his Baker Street Irregulars. And finally, in "The Adventure of the Underworld Assassin", Holmes’ detecting skills are tested to their limits as he tries to stop an assassin from destroying the British government.
