Out this week in print;
A trio of bizarre deaths, starting with that of a renowned surgeon, sends Sherlock Holmes, Dr. John Watson, and Inspector Lestrade of Scotland Yard deep into a maelstrom of murder and mayhem. Does a mysterious piece of paper that leads them to the British Museum hold the key to these killings? And what are they truly dealing with? As the death toll climbs, Holmes, Watson, and Lestrade race to solve the dreadful mystery of the Curse of Neb-Heka-Ra.
In these six adventures, Holmes solves cases in alternate universes and alongside famous historical and fictional figures. In the title story, Watson is slandered by mysterious forces who spread the rumor that the good doctor pushed Holmes off of Reichenbach Falls. In other cases, Holmes solves a real-life murder aboard a train; partners with G.K. Chesterton's Father Brown in a murder case; helps the crusading lawyer Grace Quackenbos Humiston (affectionately nicknamed "Mrs. Sherlock Holmes"); seeks out someone capable of filling his brother Mycroft's shoes; and investigates a plagiarism lawsuit involving H.G. Wells.

A prequel to His Last Bow. Can Holmes save a threatened heir apparent without compromising his more vital mission to outwit a German spy? Can Watson spend a week in the country with two beautiful aristocratic ladies and still go home to his third wife?
Dr. Watson recounts the mystery behind the tragic death of his beloved Mary Morstan. Join him as he attempts to bring a murderer to justice. Along the way, listeners will encounter old friends and enemies from several of the other stories, leading to a startling conclusion that may baffle even Sherlock Holmes.
It is Spring, 1874, and 20-year-old Sherlock Holmes is a lonely, mopey, friendless Oxford student. He attends classes and spends countless solitary hours conducting chemical experiments, reading, and playing his violin. Suddenly, his life changes because of a serendipitous moment on campus. While walking on the grounds of the university and practicing fencing moves with his foil, he encounters Victor Trevor and his sweetheart, Poppy Stamford, younger sister of the man who will one day introduce Sherlock to Dr. John Watson.
(the first of four Before Watson novels)
Someone is killing sheep in the Cotswolds. Or something. As Holmes and Watson arrive in the tranquility of a little village of shepherds and farmers to enjoy a few restful days in the idyllic countryside, strange things start to occur. While Holmes locks himself in his hotel room, consumed by depression, Watson is left to explore the surroundings on his own, acquainting himself with both the local shepherding community, the eccentric vicar, and the local folklore concerning a mysterious werewolf.
It isn't long before the murderer directs his attention to other prey than sheep, and Holmes is forced out of his ennui into a world of fog-enshrouded moors, wild men, pitchforks, and a big bad wolf.
This volume also includes four shorter stories in the vein of Conan Doyle: "The Adventure of the Velvet Lampshade", "The Adventure of the Missing Mudlark", "The Adventure of the Forking Paths", and "The Adventure of the One-Armed Pugilist".
