Sherlock Holmes and The Pandemic of Death - Daniel D Victor
Quarantines, masks, death—terms familiar to anyone who faced the so-called Spanish Flu of 1918. World-wide, it is estimated that the horrifying influenza killed more than 50 million people, significantly more than did the guns of the Great War, which was just then coming to a close. And yet no one has ever heard from Sherlock Holmes or Dr. Watson concerning their own experiences surviving the terrible virus—until now. In a recently-discovered manuscript, Dr. Watson reveals the secret which for years had kept him silent about the deadly pandemic. Only when he meets the eccentric American novelist Sinclair Lewis is the truth pried free and the story of an ingenious murder revealed.
American Literati Series Book 7 - each story is stand alone, but each includes a famous person from American literary history (Mark Twain, Raymond Chandler etc).
A Ghost Story Becomes a Matter of Murder!
“The world is big enough for us,” Sherlock Holmes once told Dr. Watson. “No ghosts need apply.”
But amateur sleuth Sebastian McCabe and his chronicler Jeff Cody don’t have a choice when a popular TV reality show comes to Erin, Ohio, to record a Halloween special about the entity disturbing a local gastropub known as The Speakeasy.
Jackie O’Brien was a bootlegger and speakeasy owner gunned down in 1920. Ever since, his unquiet spirit has been said to haunt the building where it happened – one which, after many transformations over the years, is once again a speakeasy of sorts.
The McCabe and Cody series now has an incredible ten novels and two short story collections.

The Conan Doyle Notes: The Secret of Jack the Ripper uncovers clues as to why the dog did not bark in the night....
Sherlock Holmes concluded that it was because the intruder was known to the dog. Madsen’s new mystery questions whether the identity of one of the greatest criminals of all time, Jack the Ripper, was deduced by Conan Doyle. Conan Doyle was already famous with his popular Sherlock Holmes stories when Jack the Ripper struck London in October 1888. So why was Conan Doyle silent about this case? This thrilling adventure may well hold the key....
Over the past few years, Sherlock Holmes has exploded in popularity. The character has made a huge impact on the 21st century, with multiple interpretations gaining a growing audience of new Sherlockians. But many fans of Sherlock and Elementary know very little about the original stories themselves. Watson is Not an Idiot is an opinionated exploration of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's original canon, written to illustrate interesting features and historical elements of the stories from the perspective of a lifelong fan of the material.
It's not academic, but a companion -- the passionate, excited, and sometimes ranty friend who sits alongside you and points out interesting bits while you read. Watson is Not an Idiot is perfect for the first-time reader of the stories and fans curious about starting a more critical reading of the material.
