Come, Watson! Quickly! PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Come, Watson! Quickly! free pdf Come, Watson! Quickly! is a suspenseful collection of five new Sherlock Holmes adventures. In it, the British empire's most renowned detective and his biographer-companion, Dr. John H. Watson, confront harrowing situations that confound and stymie the official police until the villain is unveiled by clever deductions and gritty footwork. The first of these five pastiches pits Holmes and Watson in a juggernaut of international intrigue and assassination, with the backdrop of world-famous circus performers caught up in the mayhem. In the second narrative, Holmes is enticed to dispel the notion that a phantom is responsible for the vicious murder of a prominent figure. The third story, a novella with twists and turns that cross the Atlantic Ocean, tells a bizarre tale involving the convergence of a cold homicide case with a fresh one. The fourth adventure is a whodunit with the victim a young woman painter who once was a patient of Watson when he practiced medicine in Kensington. The final installment takes place in the southern countryside district of Hampshire, where fly fishermen are dropping dead in mysterious accidents. Throughout the process of solving spellbinding crimes that appear to have no clear solutions, Holmes escorts the reader across Victorian-era London and its environs aboard trains and horse-drawn vehicles, conveyances that were glamorized along with the main characters and plots in the writings of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of those marvelous yarns known to aficionados as the Canon. Today, Holmes's superior wits, his brilliant methods of investigation, plus his intuitive prowess, all return to the printed page to captivate and entertain, just as they did in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
