“I had seen many strange things in my time living in 221B Baker Street with Mr. Sherlock Holmes, but an elderly man standing in the middle of our living room holding a blood-stained duck was most certainly one of the oddest of my experiences.” Join Sherlock Holmes and John Watson as they solve six cases involving stolen jewels, political intrigue, dreadful murders…and a duck!
London, 1920: Boston-bred Enoch Hale, working as a reporter for the Central News Syndicate, arrives on the scene shortly after a music-hall escape artist is found hanging from the ceiling in his dressing room. What at first appears to be a suicide turns out to be murder...the first of several using the same modus operandi. What's the connecting factor among all the victims? Or isn't there one? That's what the dogged journalist Hale aims to find out. Covering the Hangman Murders brings him into contact with a diverse cast of witnesses and interview subjects that include Winston Churchill, William Butler Yeats, George Bernard Shaw, Alfred Hitchcock, and Ezra Pound. Hale, whose best friend in London is the chain-smoking poet and banker T.S. (Tom) Eliot even makes a pilgrimage to the Sussex Downs to get an opinion on the case from the great detective Sherlock Holmes. The trip is in vain, but he eventually does meet Holmes in a most surprising encounter. Through it all there is another mystery, which perhaps goes to the mystery of the human heart. What is the lovely music-hall singer Sadie Briggs concealing from Hale - just her past or also her present?
In this series of five short stories, Holmes and Watson continue their late investigations into dark crimes in 1920/30s London, joined by their excitable housekeeper at 221B Baker Street, the brilliant, buxom Miss Lily Hudson, and by Jasper Lestrade of Scotland Yard, the ambitious, respectful son of the late George Lestrade.

The Fen country in the autumn of 1850 is dank and drab. A young woman, Catherine Greencliffe, comes from the other end of England to care for a small child who has been abandoned by his mother.
On the surface all seems well, but she soon becomes prey to mysterious compulsions and visions. She comes to realize that Southwell Hall holds a secret that she is not invited to share and, at last, makes a dreadful discovery.
What is a New Year's resolution? To me a New Year's resolution is a goal I wish to make. Almost giving me permission to let go of the past and motivate me to look towards the future. This book is an extract from Psychobabble: A Straitforward, Plain English Guide to the Benefits of NLP, showing the importance of making well-formed goals and then actually visualizing that they are real to boost motivation to achieve them.
