Sleight of Fate
Ok, so you have won a few Sherlock Holmes quiz prizes, but what if your life depended on your knowledge of the Sherlock Holmes stories? That's the shocking fate facing a woman who is tied to a chair - if she can't answer, she dies. As the questions get increasingly more difficult, the listeners find themselves realizing when their time would be up in this most deadly of quizzes in which the winner wins the most important prize - life itself.
A fascinating short story which also includes a series of Sherlock Holmes puzzles.
On Consistent Luck (The Redacted Sherlock Holmes)
How can the insurance companies keep on producing record profits when the economic theories of Professor Alfred Marshall and his protégé John Maynard Keynes suggest that this should be impossible when their prices can be easily compared? The Chancellor of the Exchequer would like an answer and commissions Sherlock Holmes to find out.
The great Baker Street sleuth and Dr Watson confront Mr. Peters, the CEO of Global Home Insurance, and the upshot is a change in the political landscape as well as Holmes's retirement to his beekeeper's cottage in Sussex.
I Will Find The Answer
Erik has returned and has brought an interesting character to Holmes's attention: Dr. Henry Jekyll. It appears Jekyll is experimenting on an unsanctioned patient in an effort to prove his theories concerning human nature correct. But who is the patient he's found? Is it his mentally ill father, shut away for years in an institution? Is it Simon Stride, the jealous former suitor of Jekyll's fiancée? Or could it be the mysterious, unsavory murderer, Edward Hyde, with whom Jekyll seems to have intimate knowledge?
Sherlock Holmes, along with Erik and Watson, investigates this bizarre case. Holmes uses a very unorthodox method that brings him to the brink of insanity as he delves into the mind of a man obsessively devoted to his work. Will Holmes's own mind crack under the strain of this case?
