The Execution of Sherlock Holmes (Lost Sherlock #3) (Jaico Sherlock Holmes)
Author: Donald Serrell Thomas
Goodreads Rating: 3.76
Publisher: Jaico Publishing House
Drugged, manacled, condemned to a dank cell in the depths of Londons infamous Newgate prison, the worlds greatest literary detective awaits execution by a vengeful crew of formidable enemies. Escape is impossible; death, a certainty.
But not for Sherlock Holmes, who, in a stunning display of intellect and derring-do, will elude his hangmans noose and live to fiddle, spy and ratiocinate another day.
Against tremendous odds, Holmes will continue to defy his enemies in four more encounters, from cracking German intelligence codes, to going against Scotland Yard and the Crown in proving the innocence of a man condemned to death for the slaying of a pregnant serving girl, to an arsenic-wielding magician, and of course, to a battle of wits with the malevolent Moriarty. Everywhere in these five finely-wrought tales, riddles and mystery hover in the air. But they are not beyond the grasp of the incomparable Holmes.
