Also available from:
January 1888: Dr. John H. Watson has returned to 221b Baker Street, just weeks after a personal tragedy has left him bereaved and bereft. Feeling like a broken man, his plans and dreams lying in ruin, he slowly tries to make his way forward, with the help of Sherlock Holmes and Mrs. Hudson. Unexpectedly, he finds himself standing in the path of a madman - who suddenly and irrationally blames Watson for his apparent defeat.
Meanwhile, Holmes has tried to distract his grief-stricken friend by telling stories of his past cases, including how, a decade before, he recovered a mysterious relic - The Eye of Heka - stolen from the British Museum. But Holmes's plan to show Watson this unique and ancient idol goes suddenly and terribly wrong as both are swept into a series of events, one tumbling rapidly upon another, that lead to thefts, murders, and possibly a war that might quickly escalate to draw in nations from most of the world. And always there is the madman in the shadows - waiting for his next chance to attack . . . .
From The Notebooks of Dr. John H. Watson comes another story by Sherlockian David Marcum, author of over eighty traditional Holmes pastiches, including those collected in The Papers of Sherlock Holmes, Sherlock Holmes and A Quantity of Debt, and Sherlock Holmes - Tangled Skeins.
Join us as we return to Baker Street and discover more authentic adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the man described by the estimable Dr. Watson as "the best and wisest . . . whom I have ever known."
The game is afoot!

“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
