While visiting his father at the magnificent Crystal Palace, Sherlock stops to watch a remarkable and dangerous trapeze performance high above, framed by the stunning glass ceiling of the legendary building. Suddenly, the troupe’s star is dropping, screaming and flailing, toward the floor. He lands with a sickening thud just a few feet away, and rolls up almost onto the boy’s boots. Unconscious and bleeding profusely, his body is grotesquely twisted. In the mayhem that follows, Sherlock notices something that no one else sees — something is amiss with the trapeze bar! He knows that foul play is afoot. What he doesn’t know is that his discovery will put him on a frightening, twisted trail that leads to an entire gang of notorious criminals.

♥ Book Title : Clever As A Sherlock Holmes
☯ Full Synopsis : "Excerpt: “Well, Saint Antonin, don’t you think that you’ve had enough dozing off in the clouds and it’s time for you to climb down to Earth? Where the heck, are you? We’re all at Mrs. Agata’s house already,” he wondered. “Hi, here’s the mother of your Saint Antonin, as you said and this Saint Antonin, unfortunately, has forgotten his wings up in the sky so he’s riding the bike with a shopping basket where he’s carrying a half of the cake we won in the raffle prizes yesterday, in order to share with everyone.” “Ehm, good daaaay, Mrs. Hornychova! I’m so sorry, that was a joke, of course! So, we’ll be seeing him in a few minutes, which is nice, I wish you a good day,” Jakub hung up, his eyes were going wide as he made a funny grimace, which was meant to express that he’d gone a little too far, scratched his ear, and made a short ‘ewww’ sound. Excerpt: It was a pleasant evening with a group of young scouts sitting around a crackling campfire, discussing what needed to be done to make their camping area fully functional. It was their first night out in nature, so there was a lot to be done. “We have to fix the lockable glass notice board case where we’re going to put up our announcements,” Matylda stated and noted something down in her journal. “There’s no hurry with that, is there? Since Mrs. Postolkova is here in the camp with us and we know she’s the infamous gossiper,” Andrea began, “I’d say we don’t need to create any scout news announcements and pin them inside the glass case because Mrs. Postolkova will spread news faster than diarrhea itself,” she said it completely spontaneously without thinking, since everyone around her knew the lady in question quite well. Then her eyes grew wide and she made a quiet “Oops!” Everyone thought it was extremely funny and they laughed. “Ehm, I didn’t hear any of that, Andrea!” the scout leader wagged her finger in warning. “But Miss Matylda, the word diarrhea is not a bad or dirty word! Doctors use it and it’s mentioned in articles and everything.” “Yes, that’s true, but you know what I mean. It’s not suitable to link someone to that word, and anyway, enough of this, please!” Matylda pressed her face into Manfred’s shoulder to hide her giggles. “Why is everyone laughing so hard?” the woman they’d just discuss asked, appearing behind their backs as they sat there in the discussion. Some of them strumming quietly their guitars and listening to what everyone was talking about as they were spending their first camping evening together. Luckily, Mrs. Postolkova had only appeared shortly after Andrea had made her funny comment and when the girl saw her standing there, she added: “Well, wasn’t I just saying it? Here she is!” “Have you already chosen the person who will be helping us in the kitchen tomorrow?” Mrs. Postolkova inquired, hands on her hips as she waited….. Excerpt: It took Albert Einstein a moment to stop the flood of other data, but those that were already on the screen couldn’t be removed. “What in the world does that mean?” Wilhem pointed at the display and read aloud: “Hitler’s headquarters tent, the year 1944, 2 hours 55 minutes in the afternoon.” “That means, boy, that in 2 hours and 55 minutes we will find ourselves in the headquarters tent of Hitler himself,” Albert said. “Oh my, we might all end up in the gas chambers, and if that happens, I’ll actually die in the same year just as my great-granny died, despite I was born some decades later,” Hebnerova muttered, crossing herself. “Lord, please have mercy, I have just gotten engaged and I was so happy, what are we going to do?” Matylda wailed. “I’ll explain everything, we have nearly 3 hours so everyone listen ca r e f ..…” Albert couldn’t finish the sentence because his attention had to return to the monitor. It was starting to spit out sentences again. After a few seconds, Einstein understood everything and exclaimed: “Stop thinking, all of you, immediately! Stop thinking!” The amazed group of visitors was able to read everything the display said while Albert consulted his notes for a combination of buttons, which he then used right away and stopped the scanning of thoughts, that the machine had performed and which would truly happen. After, when new visitors found out that in 2 hours and 55 minutes, they would find themselves in the main tent of Hitler, Mrs. Hebnerova had wished inside in her mind, “well, I’d rather sit and play chess with King Charles IV., at Karlstejn castle, and I’d give him an earful about how he had forbidden women from entering the Karlstejn.” Miss Matylda also wished in her thoughts to be somewhere else and not to see the despotic Hitler, “Lord in Heaven, why Hitler’s main tent, I’d much rather see myself in the Hollywood with Marilyn Monroe, just as they were taking that iconic photo of her with the billowing skirt… Excerpt: “Heidrich, and what are these dumb faces doing in my main tent and how did they even get in here?” Hitler shouted at his officer, who was bent over a map, surveying the territory, which his great leader had already managed to take over and wondering, which move was the right one so that they would score another victory. The sound of Hitler’s fist slamming on the table interrupted his thoughts. He lifted his head and quickly took scope of the oval room in which the great leader was currently taking counsel with his officer; it had a row of seats around the wall, likely because it also served as an auditorium. Heidrich’s gaze wandered over to the double steel door which was closed, and that made him suspicious, because how could this strange group of people get in? He was about to say something when the leader himself interrupted him with another question. “Heidrich, look at them! Not even our army has this excellent type of camouflage on their uniforms, so where did they get these? I would advise you to start speaking, you staring band of dummies, or I will have you all shot, you must be spies!” Hitler turned crimson in the face, walking up to the row of seats where the new members of the cosmic ship were sitting, not sure how they had gotten here and how they'll get out. All of them were wearing helmets covered by netting, with twigs and leaves stuck in it. Their faces were covered with a layer of masking paints and all of it was coordinated with a camouflage uniform and boots. Mrs. Hebnerova, with her eyes wide opened, couldn’t stop staring, and her mouth had fallen open as well because she couldn’t believe that they were truly in Hitler’s main tent. “Good God, Hebnerova, don’t stare so stupidly, close your mouth, put one leg over another with some confidence and try to look intelligent, if you know what that is,” Antonin sent a signal to her with his inner voice, and then went on sending more thoughts: “Everyone, try to look natural as if nothing is happening!” Suddenly Mrs. Hebnerova straightened up, crossed one leg over the other and left Hitler and his officer in suspense for a little while. When Hitler truly pulled out his gun, she jumps up from her seat and starts speaking. “We are your allies and we know everything about you,” she spoke to him with a victorious smile. She sent it to her own group as well, and they nodded back in agreement. “How could you know anything personal about me!” Hitler shouted and at that moment, Antonin asked in his mind: “What did Hitler do yesterday evening, and with whom?” A moment later, Antonin was ready to give a reply. “Yesterday, dear ‘Führer’ you had an intimate conversation with your girlfriend, Eva Braun, you ate canned ham, drank some stolen champagne, and after dinner you gave her a ring, which contains a poison…” “Enough, enough! I don’t want to hear more private information!” the German leader shouted, his face going even redder. The whole group of masked intruders moved over to the map, surrounding it and Antonin spoke again. “Well, if you try to invade Russia,” he pulled out his magnifying glass and surveyed the military campaign and its plans, “then you will, dear Führer, end up like Napoleon Bonaparte himself. You will not be able to withstand the cold, and that is Russia’s great defense.” Suddenly Beatrice’s inner voice spoke to them all as she asked whether anyone knew how to get out of there because everything that was going there scared her to death. Markus reacted to her question, advising her to say the sentence ‘I want to disappear’ and wait if it helps. Suddenly they all stopped and stared because one of the members of the masked group vanished right before the eyes of the leader, and then one more one. Mrs. Hebnerova, who felt very strong anger towards Hitler because she had experienced his rule earlier in her life, stepped up to him and yelled directly into his face: “You monster! You have to suffer for what you did during the Holocaust, for the innocent victims - all those you had sent to the gas chambers, you… you.. filth!” She grabbed his gun and hit him on the head, and when he dropped to the ground, she did the same to his shocked officer, Heidrich, who started to come after her in order to protect his leader. But he couldn’t do so because the others held him back and Mrs. Hebnerova could do as she wished. As soon as she was done she vanished and others followed suit right afterward. They found themselves back in the cosmic ship; however, they were still in their camouflage uniforms…"Article| Erika P. Hamlet| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories Part IV
☯ Full Synopsis : "In 2015, The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories burst upon the scene, featuring over sixty new traditional Sherlock Holmes adventures, all set within the correct time period, and written by many of today’s leading Sherlockian authors from around the world. This first anthology, spread over three huge volumes, was the largest collection of its kind ever assembled in one place. Response was immediately and overwhelmingly positive, and there were soon calls for additional volumes. The result is this new collection, the next in an ongoing series, featuring twenty-two more Holmes investigations. Since his first appearance in print in 1887, the popularity of Sherlock Holmes has only increased. Although originally chronicled in just sixty exploits, the number of additional Holmes tales discovered since then is literally in the tens of thousands. Along with those original narratives published by Dr. Watson’s first literary agent, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, countless other people have managed to find their way to Watson’s Tin Dispatch Box in order to reveal more exciting cases featuring the Great Detective. These accounts stretch from one of Holmes’s earliest cases, later recounted to Watson as they sit by the fire in the Baker Street sitting room, to an adventure just before Holmes’s retirement that affects both the ancient history and the very future of England. These and all the other excellent tales contained in this volume represent some of the finest new Holmesian storytelling to be found, and honor the man described by Watson as “the best and wisest ... whom I have ever known.” This anthology features contributions by: Derrick Belanger, Deanna Baran, Daniel D. Victor, Mark Mower, Craig Janacek, Jayantika Ganguly, Denis O. Smith, Matthew Booth, J.R. Campbell, Bonnie MacBird, Arthur Hall, Bob Byrne, Andrew Lane, Roger Johnson, Hugh Ashton, David Stuart Davies, Vincent W. Wright, Daniel McGachey, Nicholas Utechin, Jeremy Holstein, David Marcum, and Marcia Wilson, as well as a poem by Andrea Mantin Levy, and forewords by David Marcum, Steven Rothman, Richard Doyle, Steve Emecz, and Melissa Farnham. “This fourth volume continues the tradition set by the first three books in the series. The twenty-three items in this book include twice as many that I rate as excellent as the few I rate only as good. All the rest I rate as very good and that gives the entire volume a rating of 'excellent' as compared to any other Anthology.” - Philip K Jones"Article| David Marcum| Statement ..."
