The footsteps of a client are heard once again upon the stairs of 221 B Baker Street. The world’s greatest detective is back at work, miraculously returned to life in a collection of authentic adventures that have never appeared in a Sherlock Holmes book written by Arthur Conan Doyle.
This series might be called “The Unrecorded Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes,” since the stories are based on cases referred to in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original works but never before reported by Dr. Watson.
Now under the authorship of Adrian Conan Doyle and John Dickson Carr, Dr. Watson has been persuaded to describe fully the amazing adventures that were only briefly mentioned in the earlier tales. The authors have carefully reconstructed the world of Sherlock Holmes, whose headquarters was his rooms at 221 B Baker Street. Their stories are the inspired results of years of meticulous research, of creative imagination, and of scrupulous attention to the minute details that characterized all the efforts of the world’s most famous detective.
The twelve stories in The Exploits of Sherlock Holmes derive from the unsolved cases to which Dr. Watson alludes in the original fifty-six stories and four novels. The plots are new, but these stories are painstaking reproductions of the originals, in construction as well as in texture.
And now, once again, “the game’s afoot…”
