Sherlock Holmes thrives on danger. Sudden knife attacks, being stalked, and facing a network of assassins present little more than a cheery break in the monotony. But the enigmatic Lady Beatrice presents danger of a different kind. Is she a murderer or a potential victim? Or something even more perilous? Uncovering her secrets could change Holmes’s life forever, and in ways even he cannot anticipate. The newly-discovered Holmes diaries shed light on a tale so potent, Watson was never permitted to reveal it.
“This is the most “authentic-feeling” work I have read. Doyle himself would be pleased with this. Every detail reeks of authenticity. It was difficult to put this down, and I’m sorry I’m finished!” – Charlie Deckard

“Marcum could be today's greatest Sherlockian writer, and Conan Doyle himself would be proud of this story.”
Lee Child - New York Times Bestselling Author
“David Marcum is the reigning monarch of all things Sherlockian, and his latest long-form work, SHERLOCK HOLMES AND THE EYE OF HEKA, showcases his utter mastery of Watson’s narrative voice, while at the same time entertains and enthralls with his spot on descriptions of the characters and themes which animate the world of the Great Detective himself. No mere pastiche, THE EYE OF HEKA is a robust and creative novel in its own right, not to be missed!”
John Lescroart - New York Times Bestselling Author
While most of us discover Sherlock Holmes in our teens there are those fortunate few who encounter the Great Detective even earlier and those benighted souls who discover him later.
I wrote this book because I wanted to share my love of Holmes and Watson with my grandchildren. I hope that you have that special youngster in your life, son daughter, nephew, grandchild, with whom you can share this book. I also hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.

This performance biography is an analysis of a man in transition from working actor to multimedia star, as well as the balance between actor and celebrity. It looks at what makes this actor so well suited to play one of popular culture's iconic characters, Sherlock Holmes, and how Sherlock is so well suited to propel Cumberbatch toward greater global fame.
It is June, 1897, the eve of the greatest celebration in the history of London—the Diamond Jubilee of Her Royal Highness Victoria, Queen of the United Kingdom and Empress of India. At 221B Baker Street, happy anticipation of the event is shattered when an alarmed Samuel Clemens bursts in and informs Holmes and Watson that his life is threatened by a bizarre international conspiracy. Holmes, Watson, and Clemens spend the frantic final days before the Jubilee discovering that the conspiracy is much worse than Clemens imagined. The very fate of the Empire is at stake. Replete with the trademark Holmesian insights and London underworld adventuring, Diamond Jubilee features a host of London characters, including a brilliant London "crime queen," Prime Minister Robert Gascoyne-Cecil, Mycroft Holmes, Scotland Yard's best and worst, the Baker Street Irregulars (themselves infiltrated by unknown sinister elements), and thousands of the most appalling rats.
a) Dorothy Ellen Palmer's book 'Wiggins - Son of Sherlock' is groundbreaking in many ways. It's one of the first Sherlock Holmes pastiches to cast a disabled character as the lead and addresses many subjects not tackled by Victorian literature.
